My other bile is an electra townie that has the seat post back 4-5 inches and that is way more comfortable for me.
I used an angle finder and a level to get the cut right so the now horizontal seat post tube was level. I used a piece of 1/2 in. conduit for the rear support to brake/frame cross bar. I have done this a few times and it works great! I'm 6' tall and with out this my knees hit the handle bars on all the regular cruisers I've ridden. It is so much more comfortable and feels like a cruiser. It might not be so good for pedaling but that's not an issuse when you only have to pedal a few feet!

And thanks for the nice comments on my bike! I'm very proud of it and cant wait to take what I've learned to the next one!
