Seat height from ground

Post by SkipRope » Thu Jun 07, 2012 8:47 am



I see the specs show 30.1 inches. Is this from the ground to top of the seat? If soare there any lowering options?

You can always trim foam, but there isn't a whole lot to trim in the 1500. Better, you could go with something like a Corbin, that has narrower cutouts in the front, so your legs don't have to spread as far at the top, giving you more ability to reach the ground.
