I just ordered a madstad

After reading all the positive comments here I ponnied up the duckats and ordered a 14.5" bronze madstad. Im 6' with a 29" inseem. I ride with the stock ultra seat with a gell pad inside which pushed me up another inch or so as well. I have been debating on the 14.5 or the 16 and decided on the shorter since so many here are happy with it and shorter ones. Ill provide updates once i have it installed.

I have the same build and I ordered the same Madstad earlier this year. You will be very happy with it. I know I am..... what a huge difference. I also ordered the upgraded well nuts from them and that was well worth it also

I am very happy with my 14.5 and more importantly the wife is happy with it. I only wish I would have upgraded the well nuts at the time too.
Happy wife.... happy life.

Coincidence - I'm 6' with 32" inseams & just mounted my 14.5 medium gray madstad last night. Got the torturous HD chrome front trim back on this morning. Little medical issue going on, so probably won't test it out until tomorrow evening.

Curious to see. Good luck w yours!
