Man, it's dang good to hear I'm not the only one! I've actually strongly considered selling my bike for a shorter one several times. Moab was awesome, but damn it's embarrassing dumping it over in front of wheelers and mountain bikers! It truly is the ONLY thing I don't like about this bike; if I could find a bike that offered everything that this does and 2" shorter, I'd be in heaven. Dude...shave the seat down Check out jasilva' link above.
