Thanks! I hadn't thought of the handlebars. I did a quick estimate/measure...I think I may be able to get by without lowering the seat an appreciable amount. It is already about 3-4" too low for comfortable pedaling - I just got the bike and have not adjusted the seat yet. My concern was the angle of pedaling. The recumbents are mostly a horizontal pedal stroke, i.e. parallel to the ground. If I moved the crank, the stroke would be 45% to the ground. I was concerned about the ergonomics of the move.
