Seat height C10 and C14
« on: February 06, 2019, 09:06:22 pm »
For those of you who have owned both, is there much of a seat height difference between the two models? I had an 05 and now looking to upgrade to the newer model. Thanks!

I've changed things so much on my bikes, that I don't actually recall.
The 14 may be a bit taller, but their pretty close.

I believe the stock seat heights on the C14 is 32.5", if I recall correctly.

Had a 02 and now have a 15. You can notice the difference. As my inseam is only 28' I got heel inserts. With inserts the 15 feels about like the 02. I personally have no real issues with the height.

I rode a C10 for 18 years (including last 3 years with a Russell Day Long saddle).  I have a 32-inch inseam and could flatfoot the C10 with the stock seat but not the Russell.

I got a C14 just last October (seat is still stock).  I can flatfoot it.

Biggest thing I noticed is that the C14 feels shorter because it's way less top heavy.  My worry about the C10 was because if I got it much off center, it was hard to recover at slow speeds and when pushing it around.  I don't worry about that with the C14.
