I have searched this topic out as extensively as I could on the internet including ADVrider but want to ask the question before buying. I want to get a low seat height dual purpose bike for my son who has a short inseam. I have a DR350 with a stock seat height of 35 that I lowered with a Kouba #1 link on and slid the fork tubes up in the clamps, that is supposed to lower the seat by 1.5 but it feels like maybe an inch different. He cant flat foot it and would prefer a lower, lighter bike. He is athletic and weighs about #200 without gear. The bike is for mostly back road camping trips but some stints will be required on highways (not freeways) with fairly prolonged speeds around 60, roads with significant grades at 55 and some trail riding. My old DR350 works great for this. I dont want to spend too much, likely it will only be ridden for hundreds, not thousands, of miles a year. I rode a DR200, good size but it seemed way underpowered. From what I have read a Super Sherpa sounds right but they are impossible to find around here, late model XT250s are plentiful but get criticized on boards like this and professional reviews due to lack of a sixth gear. Very limited miles older small 6 speed XT225s and some Honda 230s seem to show up regularly but given my limited experience riding the DR200 I would be concerned about ability to ride 60mph for any amount of time. So, should I hold out for a Sherpa or would a newer XT250 with the 5 speed do about as well. Would an XT225 be too underpowered to consider? The seat height really limits choices, maybe there isn't a really good fit bike. Thanks for sharing your experience.
