    Saddle rail to seat top measurement

    Dumb question here:

    I know it varies from saddle to saddle but what's a rough estimate for a saddle stack (middle of rail to top of seat) measurement? Just a general average in your opinion. I ordered a WTB Volt Race saddle and emailed them but they responded with no info.

    I know my BB to top of saddle measurement and I'm curious what to subtract from that number due to saddle stack so I can figure out what seatpost length to get.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the info! So just to be sure I'm understanding everything correctly - if my BB to top of saddle measurement is 890mm, I take 890 and subtract the seat tube length and another 55mm (roughly, depending on saddle) and that is my exposed seatpost measurement?

    My wtb volt is 48-52mm depending on which end of the rail you measure from. Highest in the back at the max mark.
