I just rolled over 25,000km with my current chain (D.I.D. O-ring) and sprockets and would replace them if I felt they needed it. The Shinko 244's put on at the same time are still only half worn...

You would probably be just fine with a 4.10 x 18, especially given the size of the rider. Shinko 244's come to mind.

Sounds like WAY to much work for a 1/2" seat height reduction, no offence, but it seems like a lot of work and money for a relatively inexpensive bike.
