I would think you could dispense with the wooden runners, as long as you
don't have shag carpet which might get tangled in the slides. I have also
heard of peple slicing an inch off the bottom of the seat foam. For this
option I think you would want the diaphragm to keep from bottoming out.
BTW I'm 6' 1" but with the seat back raked a bit I find the forward view
acceptable, but then I'm not all that tall from the waist up, I suppose.
Ptegler had this to say:
