    I think SOWs record is broken, reminiscent of those radio ads for pills,potions and used cars that repeat the 1-800 telephone number no less than half a dozen times in a 30 second spot.

    I tried the lower setting for awhile. It made my legs feel too cramped and honestly it felt really strange to me, like I was sitting in the bike instead of on it. Maybe I'm just too used to the full on sport bike seating style. I'm 5'11" and a 32" inseam.

    I've got mine on the higher setting as I have a roughly 33" inseam. Now that you mention less wind noise I may give it a try. The trade off though: less wind for more knee bend?

    I am a bit late to the conversation, but for what its worth....
    6'1
    33 inseam
    Low seat setting, with the largest motopump risers, can easily flat foot on either setting. ive tried it with and without risers, tried both seat settings, and find the bike quite uncomfortable. Great around town, day trips and overnighters, not so good for the long hauls.
