Two Types Of Fitting

Unclamp

Unlock the clamp then slide the saddle position forward or back.

Pro Tip

If your seat-pin has a detachable clamp you can rotate it so it holds the saddle ahead of, or behind, the pin to increase the range of ‘fore-aft’ adjustment.

Step 4

<h3>Step 4</h3><p>The saddle position can be adjusted to ‘nose-up’ or ‘nose-down’. If you’re not sure of your best position start with the top horizontal. Some micro-adjust seat-pins have a big bolt to lock and a small bolt to make fine adjustment. Release the big bolt first, then make adjustments with the small bolt then re-clamp the saddle with the big bolt.

Tilt saddle position

The saddle position can be adjusted to ‘nose-up’ or ‘nose-down’. If you’re not sure of your best position start with the top horizontal. Some micro-adjust seat-pins have a big bolt to lock and a small bolt to make fine adjustment. Release the big bolt first, then make adjustments with the small bolt then re-clamp the saddle with the big bolt.

Step 5

<h3>Step 5</h3><p>Once you have a desirable saddle position, lock it finger-tight double-check it’s where it’s meant to be then lock fully.
