HSP Footplate Cover fitted. Having used the box a few times and giving it due consideration I decided that for the sake of £17 odd to add the footplate cover just to finish things off. ;)

That's it now. If I make anymore changes/additions I'll update as and when. :upthumb:

Thanks Mark, Taking into account what I paid for it in the auction against what I made from the sale of My Absolute Compact and another couple of 30mm accessories that were no longer needed, the Rive stands me in at around £205 so can't complain at that. ;)

And my new seat went on this evening, four screws, it doesn't get any easier than that :)

It adds an inch to the height compared.to my old Rive seat which is ideal as the previous configuration was giving me pain in a knee cap after a few hours of sitting with level thighs...

Hope you don't mind me asking - what height do you (& peter) have from top of cushion to footplate ?

Trying to get a comfortable set up on my PI absolute - comes in at 390mm "as supplied". I've added a 40mm taking it to 430mm - but even that feels low.

All academic at the moment as nowhere has any add on units....
