There is a bolt that raises the angle of the steerer tube, if you need a touch more height to clear your knees. You can also slide the steerer up on the Glideflex stem if you need it longer. Just mark where it was.

There should also be another set of holes to move the seat back 1 cm or so. Feel free to experiment. I had it set up for no knee interference.

Incidentally, Raymond has been writing me as he doesn't like the swept back bars his Kodiak fatty came with.

Thanks 'Bent. I just took a ride as is to start. A small change to the steering would probably clear my knees. I also thought of seeing how the fit was removing the foam, but didn't check if it just popped off or was fastened in a more permanent way. I does look like you experimented with layers a bit to get the seat just right for you. I don't need to make it fit my perfectly to judge how well it would work for me - and I'm already pretty sure it would.

You can remove the cover on the foam easily and the top layer will come off as it's just velcro-ed on, but the lower seat pan part is glued on.
