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.
Available as a complete kit for $150, or get the individual crank inserts for $25.
