What seat heights do you guys use on Divvy, and how tall are you?
I'm 6'1" and I set the seat height to 9.
I'm 5'5" and my usual rides are a 51cm road bike and 19" mountain bike. I set my Bixi rides at 5+.
Conveniently, Social Bikes seem to have a fairly similar numbering schema.
I didn't include Julie in the graph because that photo shows her first-ever Divvy, and she couldn't remember what number she uses nowadays.
Love it! :)
I'm 5'10" and set it to 8 or 8.5 usually. Now I am wondering if I have the seat too high.
Tom's graph is the rule of thumb I've always heard, I'm just a bit taller than you and I won't bother adjusting a Divvy if it's set at 8, but through trial and error I've found 7 to be just right - I won't bother adjusting it if it's at 6 either. It is also possible I am just lazy.
Seat height is usually determined by 'standover-height', inseam size and individual comfort choice.
It usually is best if the leg extension is about 85%.
Thanks. Next time I'm with someone I'll have them eyeball this.
