5'0" with a long torso and short legs :) Cannot even get tips of both toes down on the XT225. Scopio 225 is about the right height at 770mm. Using that as a base the XT needs to loose 50mm height. Some can come from the seat, some from built up boot soles, but bike height needs to loose 20-30mm. Backing off preload is not suficient and niot really the right way to go about it either. Cheers.
