- DIY bikefit on a turbo !
Just set up the road bike on my turbo (found it under a big pile of stuff, felt a tiny bit guilty) and had a brief pedal.
While on it, spotted an old mirror in the opposite corner
Set that up and found 2 things:
1) Damn! – I’m purdy
2) Saddle seems to be a genuine inch too low
(I sort of deliberately had my saddle low at the start of this year because I had a poorly calf – seems I forgot, or maybe it has slipped)
Currently 3/4 inch higher as I chickened out of the full 1″Posted 4 years ago

Cheers MrB, can’t say I’m very big on this stuff but might become interested if I smash the local strava scene to pieces next time I’m out for a bimblePosted 4 years ago
You can also do this without a turbo, if you ride past a building which is mostly glass it acts like a mirror.Posted 4 years ago
When I first put my road bike on the turbo the saddle felt too low. I raised it and forgot about it until I used the bike on the road again. It instantly felt too high and I had to stop and lower it. It wasn’t much out but just felt wrong.Posted 4 years ago
I find the turbo’s great for finding weaknesses in fit, if something’s not perfect then 30min on the turbo sitting in the same position finds it. Same with saddles, I had the same one for years, then got a turbo and went through about 6, now there’s no discomfort at all over 100miles.Posted 4 years ago
