how do I lower my CVO?

my 13 CVO is set up a bit too high for me on the rear, and would like to get flat footed. Research I have done shows that lowering blocks will not work with CVOs. What can I do to get my bike down 1-2 inches on the rear? I know the CVO shocks are already 12' stock and I don't believe there is an lower option out there? any help?

Best thing to do, in my mind, would be get a new seat with a lower seating position. That way you can keep some suspension travel 👍

platform boots?

Life is too short to put up with stupidity. Strive every day to educate someone, including yourself!

I use 1.5" heels, Chippewa lace up. But yeah, I agree, platforms are probably the #1 to change. Make sure lugs on soles are aggressive.

Not too far off. GRC over at the CVO forum likes to suggest thicker soled boots. First time I rode my bike with my lineman Redwings on heading to work, I felt a whole lot better about stopping. Now I don't ride without them.


Others have said it, change the seat, thicker boots, and I'll toss in my 2 cents, let the air out of the tires
