Bump


It's been a few weeks, and I know there are quite a few out there now, in Europe at least.


I'm 6'-1" (about 1.85m), with a 33" inseam (.84m), and would love to hear from peeps my size that have spent more than an hour in the saddle?

6"2

I'm 6"2 with 33" inseam had the chance to sit on a full throttle version and the incon version at my city expo.

I did feel a lot better on the full throttle with the lower handlebar . Fitted a bite cramp on the icon version , my arms were too bent ... Fitted perfect on the full throttle and this is the version i will order. Icon version with a lower handlebar would be perfect too.

Yep 6'1" and find it fine. Its just ok and rides perfect with feet on the pegs ok. I am not a large guy although 13.5 stone so depends on your stature may change things but you really should try before you buy just to get the I want this grin on your face.:D

6', good but not ideal, good around town or short blasts, not so good on longer trips, ie. over 100k's.

I find the seat shape pushes me forward and limits my space.

Also get a hot right heel.

Don't get me wrong, it's a great bike just not an ideal fit for me. If you can, try before you buy.

I'm 6'2" and was wondering if the Scambler would be too small for me. Any tall riders out there who could give me some feedback? I'd be willing to modify the seat or pegs.

I'm 5'10. I can't imagine this bike being comfortable for anyone over 6'0. However, if you are a tall guy, then you are probably use to being relatively cramped on a bike- thus you have grown accustomed to it. I hope that makes sense.

comfort seat 3$ DIY adjustable

I´m only 183 cm / 6´ but sometimes I wish to sit an inch or so higher for less knee bend. So I had a crazy idea: Why not stuff a bicycle tube into the seat and blow it up. I did it today and it works like a charm. Higher and super comfy.
No need to open anything since there is a big hole at the notch in front underneath where you can stuff things between foam and hard plastic. I pushed in one side first, then the other, with a wooden stick. Now I have to find the right compromise between height and ungainly bulging... 20 min 3 $

I almost feel like buying rubber membrane and making a seat shaped 'whoopie cushion' using this principal. Getting the seat at least an inch higher would feel a lot better to me. I'm only 5'9" and 30" inseam, but the bike feels tiny to me, like I'm riding someone's BMX bicycle around. That's not a bad thing since it keeps your center of gravity down, but it'd feel better to me if the seat was a bench instead of a hammock.

at 5'7' bike is perfect. my buddy who is 6'1" said on his demo ride that it felt way too small and that his back felt a little tired after the 20 mins ride. He has a 33" inseam. Don't know if it helps but the upholsterer I've used in the past to circumvent the "moto" only seat guys said he could easily stuff upholstery crap in their and make it about 1.5 or more inches taller. Of course it would be soft, so it would squish down but its better than nada...:D
