How high do you guys run your seats? I see some people who have it pretty high, and others very low. Mines pretty medium, but a little high. I've been practicing barspins on the ground, and I can pinch my seat very well. I think that it is too low. Do I just need practice more, or should I move the seat up. If I do move the seat up, should I adjust the actual post, or just tilt the seat back a bit? I know it's personal preference, but just tell me what you do, and give me some suggestions. Thanks.

they get in the way of doing manualls if its high. thats mostly the reason i have it low. and because i dont do barspins and i just noticed alot of bikes that have low seats look alot better to me for some reason :)

I ride mine to wear I think its comfy for me. I'll probably lower it a little and stuff but no need to at the moment. I need to learn barspins without using my seat, this is going to be a learning experience.

x-ups with your bars? :lol:
i ride mine like rule...

lower seats (especially dropnose seats low) and long brake cables give you and your bike a lot more style i think.

you put your saddle mostly high when you're a long way riding to school on a citybike, you don't want your bmx to be like that?
