You can loosen the bolt under the saddle, and adjust it...

for me, the best saddle position for long distance is when it's facing downwards a little bit, so that you can move your legs freely.

The saddle is mounted on a seat post, which telescopes into the seat tube of the bicycle frame. The seat tube usually has a gap, which is held together by the seat-post binder bolt. The binder bolt may require a fixed wrench, typically 13 mm or 14 mm; or, it may require an Allen wrench as shown, usually a 5 mm , sometimes a 6 mm; or it may be a quick-release, requiring no tools at all.

To adjust the saddle height, you need to loosen the binder bolt and raise or lower the seat post in the seat tube. It may be necessary to twist it a bit to get it to move. If it is hard to move, you may need to remove it and grease the inside of the seat tube.

The perfect saddle position depends on each person, but I found that for me the best position shoud be pretty close to horizontal. But it depends on you. play with it until you feel most comfortable.Also conftorable position differ between men an women

Good luck

Luis

Just picked up my bike from Walmart. They installed the seat wrong. The stirrup part is pointing straight up. Can't even sit on it.


Loosen the adjustment nut, and place into correct position.
Otherwise, take it right back and have them make the proper adjustment, free of charge - don't forget to take proof of payment / receipt.

Simple web searches find immediate answers. Try "adjust derailleur". Also consider that it may be bent. Substitute "bent".

What is the best tilt for the saddle?


SMP saddles are tricky to see the amount of tilt you have. Try this:

Place a level surface like a clipboard across the saddle tip to rear. On top of that place a small level, one with a bubble is fine. The seat should be positioned so that it is level or slightly (1 degree) nose down. This is your starting position.

from this position you can determine front and back. You should be sitting on the saddle so when riding you don't feel like you are sliding forward or backward. The exact tilt is a personal preference. but more than 3 degrees up or down and it will be very difficult to stay in position. If you can't get the saddle comfortable, you should consider having your bike Professionally Fit.

I need to know by how much further back a Thomson


The term you need to look at in your search for a seatpost is Offset. This is rated in mm and signifies how far behind the center of the post the clamp is.

What is the adjustment procedure on a shimano deor front derailleur. it will not shift into high gear.


Try this first:
Shift into the small ring and release the cable. Pull it tight (with pliers) and re-tighten the cable. It should shift now. If it doesn't, the solution is a little time consuming, so i apologize in advance.
First, flip your bike onto the bars and saddle. Now shift into the small chainring and your lowest cassette cog (the largest in number of teeth). Release the cable from the front derailleur and set the adjustment knob for the front derailleur to its center point. You should find it on your shifter. Now adjust the "L" setting on the derailleur while turning the crank so that its stop sets it in a position where it just skims the chain but does not touch it. Now pull the cable taut and re-clamp the cable. Shift into the middle ring and shift the rear derailleur to its highest and lowest gears, making sure the chain does not rub the front derailleur. If it does rub (it will be in either the lowest or highest cog on the cassette), adjust the front derailleur by way of the adjustment knob to clear the rub. Then shift into the big ring and you should have no problem. Set the "H" stop if necessary.

Quad fatigue on my road bike what could cause this? I have a new bike and I feel like saddle position is off as far (forward and Back) not the height


Quad fatigue could indicate one of several things:
  • Saddle is too far forward: frequently this strategy is used by triathletes to put the burden of the bike ride on the quads to avoid fatiguing the hamstrings before the running component. This is why Tri bikes have such steep seat tube angles and forward saddle positions
  • Saddle is too low: This causes over-extension of the quads (overbending of the knee) so your initial muscular contraction is higher in tension but lower in value.
Try moving the saddle to a more aft position. This will place more work on your hamstrings and less on the quads, and may create a more balanced workload for the two groups.

Also, if you do not already have them, clipless pedals (I ride Speedplays) will reduce the amount of work done by the quads since you will be able to use more muscle groups during the entire pedalstroke instead of simply mashing the quads on the downstroke.

You might consider seeing a professional bike fitter if you have a new bike and it is giving you problems. You should be able to get a very good bike fitter for about $100. Anyone charging more than that is just trying to use a high price to make their fitting look "better."
