Adjusting the boom on a recumbent can be a tricky business. Too long and you might hurt your knees, too short and you’ll be wasting power. So here is my infallible guide on how to set it up correctly:

  1. Set it up so it’s about right
  2. Go for a ride
  3. If it’s not right adjust it and go to step 2
  4. Congratulations, you’ve done it.

There, now. That wasn’t so hard, was it?
