Saddle height is an often debated topic in cycling and there are multiple methods used to establish it. Due to the massive amount of information about saddle height, this is our first of 3 episodes delving into this ubiquitous topic.
Professional bike fitter and BikeFit Pro Tom Wiseman of Cycling Solutions joins us for a candid conversation on how, after over 1250 bike fits completed, he establishes saddle height, the definition of pelvic stability, the importance of fit in the process, and identifying factors of improper saddle height.
Tom Wiseman initially studied fitting with Michael Sylvester, then at the Serotta International Cycling Institute. Next, he completed both Level 1 and Level 2 courses with BikeFit, established a mentorship via Curtis Cramblett to achieve his Level 3 status with the International Bike Fitting Institute and also studied special topics in fitting with specialist fitter Happy Freedman. He is also a Level 2 USA Cycling coach and a fantastic mechanic. Tom’s business, Cycling Solutions, provides comprehensive bike fitting, coaching, and bike service to the Akron, Ohio area.
