We cant adjust that way any more without significantly restricting the controls. Any suggestions?
If she can _almost_ reach the pedals, those may work nicely. They are a beautifully machined work of art. A little pricey... a friend zip-tied pipe insulation to his... seems to work maybe almost as well.
I can reach the pedals fine, too well actually. The geometry is hard on the ankles. The extensions prevent accidental braking.
If she needs more than the inch or so that these solutions provide... I'm sure someone will be along shortly with a suggestion. Platform shoes??
