Hi guys,

I will post pics, got a nice price on it, kept indoors, never dropped, a little more than 3k miles on it for $3900.

The bike was a show case bike apparently, has the black and white t100 tank on the regular bonnie specs.

Now I just need to lower it a bit so my feet can be flat to the ground, I hear a lot about the Hagon shocks, I am going to do more research about them. Has any lower their bonnies w/o new hardware or just using stock equipment?

Regards,

Collin

Great deal! Congrats. What's your inseam? How much do you think you'll need to lower the bike?

You can get ICON shocks that are 1 inch lower. I think you would be ok with going down an inch. YOu could also drop the front fork sliders up an inch to keep it all balanced out.

I would think with a 29 inch inseam you would be ok withthe stock set up. I have a 30 incvh inseam and i can bend my knees.

The SE Bonnie seats are a little lower too (about 2.5cm / 1 inch) and you can go for sportier lower profile tyres (another 1 cm / 3/8th of an inch). With the shocks that should put you close to flat footed.

Great purchase, you must be happy with that! :)

I am looking up the shocks right now, as I stand, I am 5'3 without my boots. Did you find it change the way your bike rides?
