i'm too short
on: March 20, 2017, 09:42:34 PM
With my 1,7 meters hight, I have an other problem, my legs are short.
When I buy jeans, I have to search for 34/29  and that's a rare size in Holland.

So the stock crossrunner is a little bit too high for me.
The dealer where I bought the bike lowered the rear, and front.
They also tried to lower the seat, but only managed to do that on the rearside.
The front was still high,but luckely I read the manual, and removed the 3 bolts and spacers
Now I can put my both feet on the ground.

I found this youtube video

  how to lower the suspension on a 2015 model crossrunner.

I payed special attention to the part of the sidestand, because my bike was standing almost vertical, and a push from the wind should be enough to tipp it over.
This morning I modified the sidestand, and it works for me !


I'm a happy crossy

Now the seat is on the tankprotection again and not on the painted tank.
