I'm around 5'11", he's around 6'6", but it's mainly his arms and legs that are just WAY too long. Oh, and his *** is too fat so he can't really get _in_ the seat...

@hustler: if he sits on you, you'd suffocate.

I just don't see how to get to it with the position of the seat.

It works. The seat stops just short of the bolts and they are angular so you can get a spanner on them.
