I am 5’9 with a 31.5 inch inseam (80.01) cm. with my femur about 19inches (measured from the hip) and a calf about 18inches. I tried the 109% method and seem to come up with a strange number of 34.33 inches(87.2cm). Does anyone have any experience with this formula? Does anyone have any formulas for me to try? Does anyone have any tips on proper saddle height? I realize without seeing angles it is a hard call but thank you for any and all help.
“When man invented the bicycle he reached the peak of his attainments. Here was a machine of precision and balance for the convenience of man. And (unlike subsequent inventions for man’s convenience) the more he used it, the fitter his body became. Here, for once, was a product of man’s brain that was entirely beneficial to those who used it, and of no harm or irritation to others. Progress should have stopped when man invented the bicycle.”—~ Elizabeth West (via ivegotaquestion)
