How to Adjust The Seat Height Of Your Fixie Bike

Posted by Vincent Vu on

Using the "minimum insertion" point as a guide for your seat post, adjusting your fixie bike's seat height and angle will come easy.

*Note: Never raise the seatpost past the minimum insertion point to avoid injury.

Adjusting Your Fixed Gear Bike Seat Height

  1. Adjust the crank so it's at the bottom of the pedal spindle rotation.
  2. Hop on the bike and place the ball of your foot on your pedal spindle.
  3. Adjust the seatpost up if your left is too bent by loosening the pinch bolt and twisting the seat to raise it. Tighten the bolt.
  4. Adjust the seatpost down if the leg is too straight by loosening the pinch bolt and twisting the seat to lower it. Tighten the bolt.

Adjusting the Seat Angle

  1. Sit on your seat and determine if you want to re-angle it. Women tend to have their seats point downwards while men tend to have their seats slight upwards.
  2. Loosen the seat clamp underneath the seat just enough to move the seat around.
  3. Adjust the seat and tighten the clamp.

Adjusting the Fixie Seat Front or Back

  1. Point your crank arm forward.
  2. Place the ball of your foot on the pedal spindle.
  3. Adjust the seat using the two rails your clamp tights on, adjusting the bottom bracket to move forward or backwards.
  4. Tighten the seat bolt and test try the bike adjustments.
Adjusting the seat on your fixie bike should be no issue at all. Ride around in comfort and style.
