    Thank you. I look around by attaching the rods under the seat, which saves space too.

    I'm a big fan of that U joint design as well. Any tips on how to make one, height it should be etc.?

    Well to be honest, it is not that hard to do, but it is true that I spent a lot of time trying to find the U joint :roll
    I initially thought about a car transmission joint, but it was not obvious to adapt.
    If you search hard, you have some farm tractor joint that can be easy to adapt.

    I took a square metal bar (E24) 50x50 mm and cut it at height 40 mm.
    Then just drilled at the center of each side. There is a picture above (5th june comment).
