Road Bike Positioning Chart from ParkTool

Mr. Khaw from TBFS suggest me to take down measurements of current road bike settings for future reference. Measurements such as Saddle Height, Saddle to Handlebar Reach, Stem Length are important if i’m going to change certain parts or a new bike in future. A Road Positioning Chart in .pdf format from ParkTool.com was recommend as it contain most of the information required.

“The chart is intended primarily for the mechanic to quantify and record the various aspects of a cyclist positioning adjustments. It can also be useful for a cyclist to track and record changes to his/her position. For example, if saddle height is raised, the new height and date of change can be noted. This will allow the cyclist to track changes in performance. Additionally, if the bicycle is lost or somehow destroyed, this chart will help in quickly setting up the new bike to closely match the original positioning.” (Recording Position- road, ParkTool.com)
