Lower ride height

Postby guido04@comcast.net » Fri May 29, 2015 10:21 am



Does anyone know of a way to lower the ride height without deflating the suspension? I can touch flat foot most of the time, but if there is a dip or uneven terrain I tend to be leaning a little due to my shorter legs. Ideally I would like to not replace the suspension, not sure if it is possible to adjust heights on the existing equipment

You can always cut the seat down, removing some of the foam, particularly at the front, and perhaps narrow it a bit as well.
