I am so glad it's helpful!

The Jay back I use has mounting brackets that attach to the handle posts; this gives you some flexibility in terms of switching it in and out, and how positioning works, and it looks (on my backrest) as though it would be possible to move the mounting pins quite close to the bottom. (Mine's set up so that the backrest attaches to the handle posts about halfway up the height of the backrest, which I suspect gives better stability/less tilting than you'd get if the attachment point was closer to the top or closer to the bottom, but again, there's flexibility here.)

In an absolutely ideal world, you'd probably want to work out what backrest you want or are likely to be able to get (I can very happily recommend the Jay3 but they are pricey), and then look at the technical specs/service manual to see how short a set of handle posts you can get away with. Conversely, with many chairs it's possible to alter the height of the handle posts relatively cheaply as an after-market modification, which again gives you a bit more flexibility -- but in any case, you're very unlikely to be completely stuck with the back height on a chair you pick up second hand.

I really really hope this helps -- if there's anything that's unclear, or that you'd like me to go into more detail on, or if you'd (for example) find it helpful to have some photos of my chair set-up, please let me know and I'll get back to you tomorrow, at which point I'll hopefully be more awake and better at wordsing :-)
