If you have problems bending your knees enough... setting the forward lean to the max setting can help teach you to ride in a more athletic posture...

However, for regular riding... just angle them enough so they just barely touch the back of you boots when you are strapped in (you can strap in your boots by themselves in the house to get the angles right).
