I'm only 5'8 and hate tall bikes so I'm torn on lowering link ( Devol adjustable link which can lower the bike 1'') or cutting subframe. Would like some feedback on which is better. The link is cheaper and reversable but does it hinder the handling at all. thanks boys

The Suzuki's and Honda's are very low in comparison FYI.


The '14 is definitely a tall bike at the seat.  I couldn't imagine being much below 6' and comfortable with it.

Yes, lowering links do diddle with the operation of the suspension.


There is a reversible (in fact, adjustable) alternative to cutting the sub, though.
