Adjust the saddle height

The correct saddle height is crucial for pedaling efficiency and comfort. Retül can help you estimate your Allez bike size and saddle height here


If you raise the seatpost, ensure that the seatpost is inserted past the minimum insertion line.

Adjust the reach

If your bike is the correct size, you should be able to comfortably reach the handlebars with your elbows slightly bent. Your bike saddle can move back and forth on the rails–start with it centered and fine tune as needed. A professional bike fitter will set this position to line up your knee with the pedal axle. You can also adjust your reach by raising or lowering your handlebar height, and by increasing or decreasing the length of your bike stem.
