On the elliptical bikes, should I change the stride length for shorter athletes?

These stride adjustments should typically be reserved only for people that have very limited range of motion.  Therefore, most school teams will keep the stride length at the longest setting (25″).  Some schools that have more than one unit will set one of the bikes at the 2nd longest setting (22″) for some of their shorter athletes (below 5’0″) that may feel that the long stride is uncomfortable.  But we find that this is usually rare and even the short athletes enjoy the longer setting.
