Hi - New C5 owner thanks to C5 Chas and have a quick question.

I'm a rather large guy... at 6'6" and a bit mover 18 stone.

While I fit and can ride the C5 as is, I was wondering if it is possible to reverse the neck stem or even the handlebars to get a bit more room? The added reach wouldn't be a problem as my arms are long enough to scratch my knees anyway :)

Seems doable from looking at it, but wanted to ask before taking anything apart just to see.

Hi there Jeff there is no problem in reversing the handle bars ....

What you can do is to either take the handle bars out and turn them round or you could take out the stem and turn it round ...

Thanks Chas!

Seems like I may get by with just a stem turn - that looks like it would buy me to 3/4 - 1 inch I am looking for.
