Keeping a high seat level is VITAL to every kind of BMX riding. Today's young bucks just don't get it and I don't feel like dissecting all the reasons why a high seat is important ... and low seat just look STUPID. I am so glad I was part of the 70s and 80s era of BMX. Thank you Jesus, thank you Lord.

Peace

Please dissect, because I rode in the 70s and quit in 82. The sky high seat has no fuction in todays riding. They get in the way and look funny. At the age of 43 I ride with only 3" of seat post showing. Itll be lower, but I"m trying to learn steam rollers.... Have fun kids smile

+1 I don't really get the point of low seats. Why have one when you can't sit on it because I thought that's what its for? I do ride old/mid school though

Re: do you guys like your seats all the way down??

I ride with my seat Halfway not too low but not too high, And i can still do all the same stuff with it in the middle.


I always hated when people Split the F/F. The Fork goes to that frame So why split it?

I used to have my seat all the way down coz I had a hard time reaching for the pedal especially when I was just a beginner. But not anymore, I'm much taller now. big_smile

ive got 6 lol 4 88's and 2 87's.  there not that expensive. there the cheapest of the great freestyle bikes.  but you want the 88 with the 990 mounts on them, not the 87's.  that is if your going to be riding it like i do

Re: do you guys like your seats all the way down??

I'm just gonna say something real quick then leave again.

Seat post all the way down? NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE.

How do you pedal while sitting down? What are you going to do when you get sucked in between your back tire and seat?

I use a 270mm seat post all the way up, it's a lot easier than looking like a frog when you ride your bike, besides, I have a torn muscle in my leg, I can't move my leg near as much as required to have a seat all the way down.

Re: do you guys like your seats all the way down??

I guess it personal preference, I mean if your sitting down to pedal then you want your leg to extend to its fullest for maximum power & ease.
If your jumping you don't won't a seat up the bum.

personal I don't like it to high or low on my BMX. Its kinda hard getting off a low seat & harder to pedal when it bottomed out.
but I also find if its to high... its a ballace thing. hmm  In a crash I find its easier to go over the front.
A higher seat is good for griping your knees with though. Sounds weird but the control is something else.

Re: do you guys like your seats all the way down??

I thought this section was for things related to Bmx that I could do with my kids... And of course it's just kids talking trash. Please be respectful on our site and you will be respected. Just like the 80's I ride with my pants low riding, not my seat post. All the kids out here ride with it down and no brakes... So I guess they aren't getting anywhere a quick as us "old guys" smile do your thing and whatever that thing is, do it to the best of your ability.
