Default Seat Height .....

I have a 16" windvest sheild on my bike, and this is how i look from the front. I have a stock seat with a gel insert. If i get my seat redone, do you think they can take enough out ???

Would be a good question to ask MCC. How much lower do you expect it to go? Can't help but laugh at the kids tickling each other and making faces in the back ground.

Kinda hard to tell from that pic. Too much depends on the height of the photographer. Have that little girl stand in front & take the pic and it would look like the shield is over your head! Also need to get in your normal riding posistion when the pic is taken.

HDGuy makes a good point about normal riding position. When you get in a normal riding position have someone take a couple side pictures of you. Those attached to an e-mail for the seat company of your choosing should help them design a saddle around you.
