one wheel drive Posted August 25, 2021 Share Posted August 25, 2021 (edited) I'm about average height with a 32" (81.3 centimeters) inseam. The T7 has me standing on tip toes. That's okay for street riding, but on dirt I want better contact with the ground. Obvious first remedy would be a lower seat. Anyone tried a low seat and got satisfaction this way? What seat have you tried? How comfortable is it? How much did it lower the seat height? If a low seat doesn't get it done, what else is there other than lowering the suspension? Kouba and a few others make lowering links. Anyone here had experience lowering the T7 this way? How did it affect the handling? Did you bump up the rear spring rate to compensate? Any source of pro advice on doing this? I would assume you'd need to drop the triples down on the fork tube a similar amount to balance the bike. Any problems with the fender making contact then? Cornering or handling issues show up? I hate to lose stroke length and ground clearance. But that sacrifice might have to be made to gain a bit of control during stops in the dirt. Yeah, I know. Just don't ever stop. But seriously. : Edited August 26, 2021 by one wheel drive Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
