Optimal position is a compromise among many bicycling needs and may change depending upon the event since position affect performance, efficiency, comfort, and chance of injury. Measurements are taken to the center of Bottom bracket to the top of saddle in line with the seat tube. Top tube and head tube also are dimensions to determine your reach and handlebar height.
