Highly Recommend Seat Mod
« on: August 09, 2008, 01:41:00 pm »
  Had them lower and do the Supracor "LD" upgrade on my seat. Best $100 bucks I could have spent. Fast turn around, only gone 1 week.
Didn’t have much of an issue with the stocker as far as comfort until I hit the 600 mile a day mark. Main reason was so I could flat foot it. Like a lot of folks, 6’ / 32” inseam, I couldn’t. Now I can flat foot it and the seat is more comfortable than any I’ve had. My knees are bent a little more but not uncomfortably so, and best of all IMO is no change to the suspension.
So…take it for what you think it’s worth, This is one seat mod I highly recommend.

You don't appreciate a lot of stuff in school until you get older. Little things like being spanked every day by a middle aged woman: Stuff you pay good money for in later life.

How much did the mod lower your seat?  I'm 5'9 and feel like I'm on my tippy toes.
