  • Seat angle adjustment 101

    After riding my homebuilt MUni frame for a little over a month, I've decided that I really like the feel of the Kris Holm saddle when the nose is tilted up. Here's how I acheived raising the nose of the saddle on my Coker. First, I took an old seatpost and cut a 3/16" groove about 2/3 of the way around it from the back. Next, I pressed down on the seatpost to close the gap and then welded the seam closed

      With the stock seatpost, the saddle was parallel to the handle. This is how the saddle now sets on the modified post

          Good job. I've actualy had that idea for a while but can't weld.

          But that will all be fixed soon since I'm starting a welding class next week and buying a welder at some point.
