Putting a level on a saddle doesn't measure whether that saddle is horizontal if the jig holding the bicycle isn't level to begin with. A dirt setting isn't a good start and a rock isn't a good solution. Nor is eyeballing a level instead of quantifying how far from level a saddle is. Photo: Nick Legan
