Q: How can my bike be lowered?


There is more than one way to get your feet flat on the ground. There are shorter shocks for swing arm styles and several lowering kits for softails. Another way is the seat. There are many styles of seats on the market. If you choose a seat with narrower and lower profiles, you can get your feet up to two inches closer to the ground. Gel seats are also available so you don’t have to trade comfort for cool. Then there are tires. Pick a tire with a little lower and wider profile and gain down to one inch or more.
