    Alternative methods of mounting stoker bars

    I am looking for alternative ways to mount the stoker bars to accomdate a really short captain.

    Here is the deal, we are conducting a training study in my lab to examine the effects of high rate cyclical exercise on Parkinson's motor symptoms. Bike is on rollers (front wheel in a fork mount) so no balance issues. The patient will be in the stoker position while my able bodied post-doc, who is shorter than I thought, will be in the captain position. Many of the patients we are testing will be about her height so we can't just swap positions.

    My post-doc can fit in the captain position if we remove the stoker stem from the capt. seatpost. Any suggestions as to alternatives to mounting the stoker stem?

    I know, get a smaller tandem. Budget restrictions prevent that acquisition.

    Since this is stationary and in the lab, you might be able to mount them to something, that is not even attached to the bike.
