I would love to get just a little more height for my daughter so that the bike doesn't quite feel so small.

The reason I drilled this in this position is so it could be drilled again above that point for a slightly lower seat height, if needed. I'm guessing most people just drill a new hole straight back. The left side of the photo is the front, the original hole is also towards the front. I forget what I size I used, either 5/16", 11/32" or 3/8". Stock size is 11mm, IIRC.

The worrying part was where you drill thru just the edge of two layers of material. I was worried the drill might skew off slightly and then not line up all the way true, but I got there quite easily in the end...
Thanks again for the pictures. The US$25 Extender + shipping to where I live is just not worth the costs.
A Jeep brake rotor gives the stand a perfect height to lean on - without it the bike almost topples on it's stand. (I'll get to extending the leg at another time.)
Amazing how much just 1" difference will make to a total picture and outcome!!

The stepped-steel won't affect the rigidity, since the single layer part is in the area of the least stress.
