When you order a Bayck, during the ordering process you have the option of entering your height. Based on this, our mechanic adjusts the saddle and handlebars as best as possible. Because every person and body is different, we advise you to check the position before your first bike ride.
It is important that you are stable on the bike. If you move back and forth while cycling, the saddle is not properly adjusted. You determine the height of the saddle in two ways:

Tip from our mechanic:
“Whenever you assemble/adjust a component on your bike, it is helpful to have assembly grease on hand. No assembly grease at home? Don’t panic, Vaseline is a good alternative What should definitely NOT be used are vegetable-based greases or oils, for example!”
To avoid saddle pain, back or neck pain, we recommend thinking carefully about saddle choice. Bayck supplies high-quality saddles from Selle Royal. You can choose from 3 types of saddles:
Sporty: The Selle Royal Essenza Athletic is a sporty saddle. This saddle is especially suitable for a sporty forward leaning seating position. With this posture, the pressure point is mainly at the front. Therefore, the saddle is equipped with a recess especially for men.
Comfortable: The Selle Royal Essenza Moderate saddle is a wide saddle aimed at recreational use. You have a straighter posture where the pressure is on the buttocks. The extra-wide seat provides a good resting point for the buttocks.
Comfortable extra: The Selle Royal Essenza Relaxed saddle is a wide saddle aimed at recreational use. You have a straighter posture where the pressure is on the buttocks. The extra-wide seat provides a good resting point for the buttocks. The difference with the Moderate saddle, is that the Relaxed is equipped with extra suspension. This provides more cushioning while cycling.
