    Tour Easy Overall Dimensions

    Does anyone know the overall length and height of the Tour Easy's? I'm looking to see how easily one would fit inside the back of my car. Also, regarding the height, it looks like I could swing the handlebars down so that the seat back would be the highest point. Does the seatback also easily lower?

    Thanks for any help,
    Randy

    88" long X 39" tall. That's what my large frame Tour Easy measures.
    from what Gardner once told me, the handle bars should not be tightened all the way. That way they can pivot up/down with a little umph. Mine has the older "Cobra" seat and the only way to "lower" it would be to remove it. Not too hard to do, but ti would mean restting it to the correct position when you got to the ride start.

    Thanks.

    Are you sure about that length though? The website says the large frame has a wheel base of 69". Is the radius of the front wheel + the radius of the back wheel only 19" or am I calculating something wrong?

    Thanks,

    Randy, wheelbase is where the tires touch the ground or axle to axle. I measured from the front of the front wheel to the rear of the rear wheel, thus OVERALL length of 88". The rear wheel is a 700c and the front is 1 1/8" (451 in techno terms, as opposed to a 406)

    edit, I just pushed it up against a wall and used a square to the outside of the front wheel and got 90&1/2" for the overall. Sorry, my first measure was sloppy.
