    Smithee, I have a 29-inch inseam and I do just fine on my TT. I'm not selling here (I write the CSC blog). You might try to find someone in your area (we can help you with that) who has a TT so that your friend can sit on one and make her own determination.

    I'm 5'7" with a 30" inseam. When I am sitting on the TT250 I have the balls of my feet on the ground.

    Cheers,

    Consider a RX3, seat height 31.3", a short seat is available and a lowering link. Sure, it is more money, but you also get fuel injection, water cooled, six speed, wind screen, engine guards and luggage.

    My wife rides a TT and she's about 5'6". She could put the balls of her feet on the ground....but then I got her the lowered seat kit. Loves it. It wasn't cheap in the end run though. Kit cost...plus an hour at an upholsterer. 2LZ found out he can't do upholstery on a curved seat worth a darn.

    2LZ....thanks for the input on the lowered seat kit! I'm thinking of buying a TT for my wife but fear it'll be too tall for her. Can I ask....what's the seat height now with the kit installed?
    Also where is seat height actually measured?

    A note to the mods...it's time to change the title for this thread. The TT250 is no longer sold at the price listed. That's a distraction. Please change the name to reflect just the TT250.

    I second that. Maybe it should now be "The Official CSC TT250 Thread"

    Cheers,

    Well, the mods did change the thread name. Now it points out that the price was lower a year ago.

    Hey MuckSavage, I didn't see this till yesterday. Apologies for the delay.
    I went out to the garage last night and got some quick "eyeballed tape measure" measurement, standing the bikes up straight by myself. Since I'm hiding my neighbors new TT250 for him, it was the perfect opportunity to compare.
    Measurements are as follows:
    Stock - about 35"
    Low Seat Kit - about 32"-32.5"

    Hope this helps!

    It's even better....
    He rode Mrs. 2LZ TT250....and had to have one. He picked up a new one a few weeks back on the year-end sale and has been having fun with it. Now his son is up for Christmas and he doesn't want him riding it because he doesn't have much experience and he doesn't want him thrashing it....so it's parked in my garage and the boy is none the wiser! They came over and his son just thinks it's just part of my rolling stock.

    They have on the CSC site a seat foam and cover lowering kit. That will drop it about 2.5 inches. and one can pull the forks up in the triple trees an inch. And lover the spring tension on the rear shock and that will drop it a bit when you get one. You can do it.

    I ordered my TT250 from them on thursday 22 Dec. and now only 3 are left at that 2016 closeout price. These guys are so good and all Americans (wow no Stephen king inserts on phonecalls to them). Their stock of parts is stunning and very complete and they have a ton of how to's for maintenance work. NEWSFLASH got an email yesterday from Sara at CSC and the bike is on the truck leaving California. Nice.

    Randy, it only took seven days to ship my bike from CA to Virginia. You will probably have yours before the New Year. When I talked to Steve he said that the 2017s are identical except for a digital dash, some colors, and a $400 price increase. You'll be glad you ordered when you did!

    Does anyone know of an aftermarket tire with similar offroad/street characteristics to what comes as stock on the TT250?

    Shinko has two different series of tires...you need 4.60 X 18....that match the size that comes stock on the TT250. Looking at the tread patterns I think the 700 series would be my choice, it's supposed to be 60/40.
