I have a 30" inseam, and after doing the factory lowering (threaded out the shock clevis, raised fork tubes 3/4"), I get the balls of my feet down, and if I slide forward to the lowest part of the seat, flat-foot. I also weigh 225 lbs, which compresses the suspension more than a lighter person would.
