    seat position

    hey guys ...I have a question about seat position....is there an ideal position as far as the seat "levelness' (if thats even a word) is concerned ? should the seat be perfectly level or maybe a tad nose low position ? or is it pretty much rider preference ?? thanks for any help or advice

    Preference. I like a degree or a half rise at the nose. Level is a good starting point for you to experiment.

    I ride with the nose 1 notch down from level.

    Start level, then try up or down if that doesn't work for you. If you have any suspension, remember the bike will sit differently when you put some weight on it.
