Abbey Bike Tools Saddle Fit Kit lets you easily repeat your saddle position from bike to bike

The new Abbey Bike Tools Saddle Fit Kit lets you easily replicate your saddle position, offering a rigid plate with measurement guides all over it. The system straps to your saddle with a cutout window to position it at the nose of your saddle, providing a constant starting point. From there, it comes with crank bolt inserts (8mm, 10mm and Shimano Preload) that have a magnetic slot to hold the end of your measuring tape in place. Use that, your own level, and a few minutes of your precious time, and you’ll be taking care of something a little more precious.

For $150, who would need this? Folks who travel with their bikes a lot, have a lot of bikes, or anyone that has a hard time getting comfortable and wants to be absolutely sure they can repeat their position once it’s dialed.

The front of the unit houses the three crank bolt insert tools that’ll keep your tape measure in place. These make it easier to focus on the task at hand and not worry about whether you’re holding the tape at dead center of the BB.

It’s not super clear from these pics, but the cutout is actually that piece of material bent downward to create a bump stop for the nose of the saddle.

Or you could just make a mark on your post and measure the distance from the nose of the saddle to the center of the headset cap for free, or use an aluminum drywall square for more precision – $15 at Lowes.

That’s only valid for one bike. I have 4 bikes I need the same position on, and they have different reaches, from 377 to 395 so that trick doesn’t quite work. I for one, would love this tool.

What? This amounts to a $150 clipboard. You still have to use your own tape measure and level. Ok, you do get a crank bolt tool to hold your tape measure in place.

I made a template from cardboard. Distance from nose to seatclamp – make a mark. Distance from nose to top tube – cut cardboard to size. Works every time. Cheap.
