Still no clue about half-seat o.0
 
So I posted a thread about half seat and got really good answerss but im still confused :S Do you basically just hover over the saddle keeping your eg the same and lean over slightly?

Well a half seat or light seat I would say is exactly what you said. Standing slightly and leaning forward a tiny bit.

Yes exactly! But keep your hands the same way. And keep your knees bent.
