I am 6' and I was a bit cramped on the standard, between seat and pegs, although I believe the seat was in the lowest position. So I would advise if you can take a test ride if you can, even if you have to travel a bit to do it.
In corners with the 21" in wheels , did you notice how close the tire rubber was between the wheel rim and road? being that the width of the 21 wheel is much thinner? I have heard the rim gets way to close to the road.
your experience please?
