If road saddle was 20mm too high ?
I set my saddle height usig the heel on the pedal method, but today I read a cycling weekly article saying to measure inseam and for starters subtract 10cm to get saddle height from centre of bottom bracket. I had my wife measure from right up into my nads vertically down to the floor whilst I was barefoot. This was 79 cm ( im 5 ft 9 ) so removing 10 cm gets me 69 cm from centre of bb to saddle top when measured following seat tube and post angle. I was surprised when I measured existing set up to find it was at 71 cm or 20mm higher than what the fitting article recommended. I have been plagued with hamstring tightness and wonder if this ties in with a too high saddle fitting ? If I set the saddle 20mm lower as per suggestion is it right to assume a similar handlebar drop to even things out even though 20mm is quite an adjustment.
