Talking about seats..
« on: December 17, 2020, 04:53:16 AM »
Yeah, I've searched the site and found conflicting information. I'm looking for something else to do while my hand heals and decided I could make the seat. What I *don't* want to do is make something that doesn't work.  :grin:
To those that have done it, is the 36" dimension too short? What length is the longest you can go without fouling the stick assembly?
TIA

I followed the plans for my XL and found the 36" length too short. 5'9" avg. build. When sitting in the seat I felt like I was sliding forward. I added an additional 6". Now I feel like I'm more settled in a "sling." It's very comfortable. Plenty of room above the torque tube. Matter of fact, I wish I added 7". Also, it would have been easier to go long and shorten the seat rather then having to lengthen it after finishing it. The width is ok.
