Out of interest, here’s a short (ish) blast on building up the Performer Toscana.  I tend to change things away from the manufacturer’s recommendations but don’t think this is any slight on…Continue

Recumbent modifications for kids

I've been toying with the idea of a modified recumbent for my 6 year old for a while but have come to the conclusion that a permanent mod, ie. cutting frames, isn't a great idea.  Also, there's too…Continue

After some months since I got it, the webbing on my seat has finally deteriorated to the point where I had to do something about it. Even the temporary rope solution wasn't really doing what I needed…Continue

Plenty of room for growth Doc, although I cut the boom there is still plenty for extension, and the seat can be moved back at least 3 inches.  If I put enough chain beck in, I could ride it now just by extending the boom.

I ask about the boom because (as you would already know) each year kids grow and need new shoes/clothes/bikes/sporting equipment & everything and in only a few short years he's going to out-grow that boom and maybe it would be a good idea to get a spare full sized boom now for when that day arrives - of course he may have discovered girls and cars by then in which case you will probably need the full sized boom for yourself!
