I'm just short of a 30" inseam, and just installed the 3/4" Kouba links yesterday. Worked out perfectly (and they're purty in anodized orange). The bike stands up just a bit more on the sidestand -- certainly not enough to consider replacing it, or cutting it down. You have to put quite a bit of pressure on the bike for it to begin to tip.
I also put a "low" version of the Sargent seat on the bike.
The backslope *is* 1" difference between the standard and low, on the Sargent, however, since the angle of that slope is very high, I don't feel a significant difference between the low seat and standard in height. Regardless, it's an incredibly comfortable seat right out of the gate (took me about 1500 miles on my last Corbin to break it in to the comfort level I felt right away with the Sargent).
Even with all the above, I can't completely flatfoot the bike. I'm on the balls of both my feet, simultaneously. And, that's all I needed to backup, and feel comfortable stopped on cambered, or uneven roads.
