I too have wondered about a measuring system for seat position. What I intend to do is get a "stick on measuring tape" used by wood workers and such. They would stick it to a bench, or on a tool table. Mine is 36" long, and durable plastic. I'll stick it to the square tube "seat adjustment tube" on the EZ Sport. Perhaps the TiRush has a similar arrangement?
Details: I'll run the seat all the way forward till the front cam clamp is a the edge of the square tube, & mark the spot with masking tape. Then run the seat all the way aft, mark with tape. Next remove the seat. I'll put the masking and measuring tape on the kickstand side. Clean the square tube with alcohol. Cut the tape to fit beyond the tape marks and inch or so. Then stick the tape to the side of the square tube up close to the top. Avoid the radius edge where the top flat meets the side flat-tape is too stiff to stick around the radius. Burnish it on. Replace the seat & enjoy.
Why mount at the top of tube side? On EZ Sport, the cam clamp pinches the seat slide at the bottom, so the tape should wear better by locating it near the top.
Why would I want a measuring system? 1) let other people ride the Sport, try to get them hooked. 2) After they ride, I can easily return it to my perferred position! 3) while I'm trying to find my perferred position, I can easily move the seat by a 1/4" or so and test the adjustment. Get some data!--george
