If you'd like to have a quick sit on a bike to see how comfortable you find it and if it's the correct fit, take a look at a local store near you on our Raleigh store locator and get in touch with them to see if they have the bike size you require. It's worth noting that even if the design isn't the same, it may be worth sitting on the size you think they need, as it will be a similar fit just in a different style.How high should the saddle be? Correct saddle height is important not only for comfort but for peddling efficiency too. Here is a simple method to set the correct saddle height. Whilst stood next to the bike, set the saddle to the height of your hip bone. Ensure the saddle is not extended past the minimum insertion mark on the seat post. If this is the case you may need to consider a larger frame. Using a wall, table, turbo trainer or friend holding the bike, sit on the bike with both feet of the pedals. Rotate the pedals back so that the crank arms are at 12 and 6 o clock. On the lowest pedal move your foot forward so just your heel is on the pedal. In this position you should aim for your leg to be straight. Keep adjusting the saddle height until your leg is straight. Once you have set the height place your foot on the pedal at 6 o clock in your normal riding position. At this point your leg should have a slight bend at the knee. This method provides a good starting point for, what should be, a comfortable and efficient riding position for most people. This is of course is just a guide so feel free to make any adjustments you need for your own comfort.
