Well, Some riders like Joe Hodges and myself like riding with the saddle EXTREMELY low. Joe has his at his knees last time i check, and same goes for me (really, its really really comfortable doing SI like that, and just for normal riding). Some SIF riders have theres really high, which i cant stand when i'm riding.

Haha glad you liked the music! I really contemplated what to use and for some reason some classic and kick back and relax Steely Dan came to mind.

Thanks. I think that bit at the end is my favorite so far, with the "Pun patrol" guy in a close second lol! And yeah, I'll need all the luck I can get with my new trials uni!

Hey Terry ... great vid - thanks for posting it! It's great to see what you can do on the 36" ... what size cranks are you using on it here?

Thanks! well, I usually use 114's, but for doing stuff in the video, I was using 127's, and also tried 165's. The longer cranks are a little better for crank revs and riding backwards.

For actual riding I much prefer my saddle high so I can get close to full leg strokes which give me more power. "I need more power Scotty!"

But in my case that's mostly for MUni, but then again for certain tricks like ww, it seems to me that it's much easier to have the saddle higher, and also in freestyle the saddle is really high.

I think the main reason for having it really low is so you can tuck and bend down more for hopping and jumping, especially rolling jumps that are done SI.
