    What part of Nova Scotia are you? I often hang out around West Dublin on the south shore but have explored a lot of it.

    Hi Mark, no problem. I am 5'-6" in height with a 30" inseam. I was a bit concerned about the bikes height but when I went to look at it I just got on and rode it. No problems except I can only get one foot down at stops, usually my left. The bike had a Corbin seat on when I test rode it but I took it with the stock seat which is a bit lower. Other than that no changes, just riding it to gain confidence. For me to flat foot this bike I would have to install lowering links and lower the front forks which I had considered but now, after a month, have decided to leave stock. I have found it's really just a matter of becoming accustomed to the bike and watching where your foot goes when stopping. To back the bike I just get off and push it.
    Hope this is of some help. It's a great bike!

    Hey, wondering if you would share exactly how vertically challenged you really are and what you did to make the bike work for you? We just bought my wife a Wee and I'm about to get some lowering links. She can tippy toe and I'd like to make sure she can flat foot.
