    I agree Andy and Fuentes, no cushion should fit to the knees. I cringe, well kinda anyway, seeing that.

    lol Vander, yeah, sometimes much later then up at 6:30. Course I'm sure the youngun's are just going out the door to party at midnight.

On a 90o, the back of my knees would be against the seatpan. 85o angle on a 17" I would have like three or more fingers I think.

      You must have like a 75o angle WTF to have to do that with your cushion.
      I have an 85 degee on my zra but I did order my 16" depth with the added inch so maybe thats why I can pull out the cushion some.

        John with the 17" width is it a tight squeeze to get pass the steering wheel? I have a 16" and mine barely makes it?

          slide your [vehicle] seat back, or lean it back, or both.

            I do, I slide the seat all the way back and I lean the seat back, I think my sure grip handcontrols stick out more than it did on my previous Nissan.

              I changed forks and got 5'' casters, and now my STF is 19''. But my seat pan to footrest is 17'', same as you Patrick.

              My question is do your thighs firmly sit on the cushion? Seems like your thighs wouldn't be bearing much weight, being as you're 3 inches taller than me, and have the same measurement from seat pan to footrest that I do.

              If I go any shorter on seat pan to footrest, my thighs don't take hardly any of my weight...leading I believe to more pressure on my ischials, leading to a red butt where my pressure sore healed.

              Unless I have freakishly long lower legs, which I don't believe is true

                i dont even fold my back down. I slide seat all the way back and lay it completely down. Plenty of room

                  Hey RDF, I use a hard foam cushion. I can slide my hands under my thighs with a little effort. They rest on the length of the cushion with out distortion and not gaps. What type of cushion are ou using? If you do change the length, make sure to check the bum. Hope that helps.

                  How are the 5" casters? They should help with the clearance from fooplate to floor.

                    Patrick I'm using a Jay2.

                    I think I'll stay with a 16by16 after reading your comments, and those of John and others. Yes the 5'' inch casters help a little with the clearance.

                    What do you mean by 'without distortion and not gaps' regarding your thighs on the cushion?

                      No indentation of the thighs due to being too low on the cushion.

                          Hmmm mine is pretty tight. We have the same chair and same car - so maybe its my technique.

                            Did you order a fixed back chair this time around?
