The DeskCycle is only 10” at the highest point of the pedal but sometimes it is good to have even lower. This short front leg will reduce the height by a full inch.
If you need more clearance between the bottom side of your desk to the top of your knees this could be the solution.
By dropping the DeskCycle closer to the floor you will need to ensure proper posture while pedalling. Feet will have to be level to keep your heals from scuffing the surface of the floor. To do this just point toes forward intend of up. This will result in pedalling with feet level or parallel to the floor.
