Road Bike Saddle Height Calculator

A correctly positioned saddle makes your road bike easier and more enjoyable to ride. The bicycle saddle is the primary point of contact between you and the bike, and having the correct saddle height maximizes pedaling efficiency while reducing the risk of knee injuries. Your leg muscles are most efficient when they're almost fully extended through the pedaling motion, so your leg length measurement is needed to get your correct saddle height. This calculator provides a starting saddle height measurement, along with instructions on how to adjust the saddle.
