    Sorry on a road bike.....

    Tryin to reduce the angle of flex at the knee and hip to see if that solves my cramp.

    Sorry to hi-jack this thread, but I didn't want to start a new one that's similar to this one: if people could also link to some good quality info on how seat fore/aft position affects the rider, particularly with relation to back pain but also to the different leg muscles & joints, I would be grateful...

    Here's some info from one of the world's most respected bike fitters, Steve Hogg. Pity he is the other side of the world but if you are ever going to Austrailia take your bike :lol:

    You can't treat one part of a bike fitting as independent of any other part therefore seat position will impact on all other parts of the fit so go carefully :wink:
