6' 5" here, the tallest mounts from Scotts on their triple clamp, the highest rise ProTaper bars - Doug Henry bend, the lowered footpegs, tall seat foam - that is about all you can do - you can add 20 or so mm with another set of bar clamps inverted and added onto your triple clamp, but it starts to look ugly with all the patch together pieces... and if you have a dampener, the post becomes too short...

Do a search, plenty of previous posts have covered this subject...

HTH,

David

6'2" brown eyes indicating full of crap up to me ears :)

Applied Top Clamp with Pro Taper low bend feels comfortable

BTW also I did the peg mod that lowered and pushed back the pegs about 1/2 inch each way, Best Mod I made for Ergo's. Makes my legs alot more comfortable

6'7" here.

Im really suprised to see no one has said anything about the Thumper racing goliath bar mounts yet except for flyingguitars.

You can get them in 1" and 1 1/2" risers. For a guy my size Im going to go out on a limb here and say this is the best mod I have done for my bike.

You can click on the link to their website in my signature line below. Look for the link that says "Thumper racing 1.5 bar risers"

You MIGHT be able to find some info there but their website is kinda lame.

Along with the bar risers,diffently do the footpeg mod, brings the pegs down and back a 1/2", anyone above 6' should benefit from this mod!
