Ride Height
« on: September 01, 2014, 10:45:33 AM »
I'm looking to reduce the seat height so I can stand flat footed when I ride...what is the best way of doing it without changing the geomerty of the bike???
Thanks

Grow longer legs.   ;D

Seriously, anything you do to reduce ride height by default changes frame geometry.  The bike was designed for a tall rider named Pierre Terblance, so it is what it is.

one of the reasons i bought mh900 was the ride height as i am 188cm so it perfectly sits and the tank shapes around legs like ... :)

really following your post i tried to look at naked bike and see almost no place for improvement as even with removed seat it is rather high

maybe try high heels
