That appears to be the +4", I just installed the +2" on mine with the madstad and my head and shoulders are happy, but I still get huge windblast up my body. I will be fabbing up some sort of deflecters to mount on the crash bars because I get lots of wind right over my knees that shoots up both sides of my body and right up into the helmet.

Probably about 5'9".

flat footing is overrated. I flatfooted a cruiser for 6 years before switching. I'm much happier and more comfortable at 5'7"

The little wee is losing the battle for my spare time to my non motorized 2-wheeler.
Still she doesn't complain

Tink's Wee

Loving my 2004 Wee. Bought her in May 2012 and put 4,000 miles on her to date. One of the best bikes I've owned , and I've owned a bunch of bikes
She sounds like a tractor, but she runs like a bull
