The correct riding position can make all the difference between enjoying your pedaling time at Burning Man or a painful experience.
This short video shows how to adjust a playa bike for the most comfortable and efficient riding position. The example bike is a beach cruiser (probably the most commonly found bike on the playa) but the recommendations are applicable to all bikes.
- The saddle should be level
- Saddle height adjust so that when your downstroke leg is extended all the way down your knee is just slightly bent.
- Handlebars height adjusted to preference and comfort using the stem adjustment.
- Handlebar angle adjusted so that wrists are comfortable and not bent.
