I am 5' 11" with a 32" inseam. I am not cramped at all after altering my seat. With the stock seat though I felt like I was leaning back too much, and on longer rides my hips got sore trying to hold myself up against the wind. I also felt the handle bars needed to come back an inch or two. My solution was to have my seat custom modified. I changed the platform angle of the seat so now I feel like I am leaning slightly forward. This alleviated the wind issue, and my hips feel better, and also got my hands closer to the handle bars, and eliminated the need to modify the bars at all. Also the seat is now slightly higher which in turn gave me more leg room, and a better leg angle.
