    It's a comfort issue mainly - if it's tilted up at the front it can increase pressure on your crotch.

    If it's tilted down you can feel pitched forward over the bars.

    I'd just think of level as a good starting point, then adjust with slight up or down tilt to suit.

    Do you mean "level" as in horizontal to the ground or at the same height as the handle bars?
    Not that all teenagers are evil mind, just most of them.
