    Seat height set to high

    Hi guys, I'm trying to set my seat height to high, my 2018 crossrunner was an ex demo and did not come with the 3 spacers required to do this. I've looked on line and they appear to be easy enough to cobble together.
    All I require is the length of the spacers and I can make some in my garage, can anyone measure them up please,  Ron

    Pretty sure that they are 12mm high from memory and are really just thick washers.

    Check in the tool kit if have not allready. Other than that a bit of aluminium tubing cut to suit will fill the bill but as mentioned also sure 12mm.

    Just measured mine. The front spacer is 16mm and the two black ones are 20mm.

    Forgot to say that the spacers are recessed to take the Allen bolt.

    Thanks for the info boys, what I did in the end was to find a previous thread on this site and skids had posted a picture of the parts required. I then used zoom on the picture until bolt diameter was same as bolt held up to the screen. it was then possible to measure diameters and lengths on screen. came out about 19mm and 16mm on small spacer. figured this was near enough for the seat and made some plastic spacers to suit.
    seemed to work fine and seat looks spot on in it's high position.   Ron.

    In addition: I raised the front of the seat by aprox. 6mm (by adding extra spacers) to get the seat nice and level.

    When my bike was delivered from dealer (2016 cr), I had asked them to put seat height to low. The three spacers were left in while the rear was lowered. It was like riding uphill permanently.......
    But at least I got the spacers.
