Finding the optimal seating position depends on the rider’s body size, the frame size and frame geometry of the cargo bike and the settings of the handlebar and the seat. An incorrect seating position may mean that you can only reach the control elements on the handlebar to a limited extent. The seating position can be correctly set up by a Carqon dealer.
Significant features of a suitable seating position are:
- If a pedal is up, the knee angle of the upper arm and the crook of the arm is 90°. The lower leg is slightly bent.
- If a pedal is to the front, the knee is located above the axle of the front pedal.
- The arms are relaxed and slightly bent outwards (not visible in the illustration).
- The back is not in a vertical position in relation to the seat tube.
