When I bought my bike, a 2012 FLHTC, my feet could barely touch the ground. I have a very short inseam (28") and I also needed to improve my reach. After trying out every seat HD had, if I improved the reach I had sever comfort problems in a VERY sensitive area! No seat I tried really lowered the height. I had HD lower the bike with new fork springs and rear shocks which helped to get my feet to the ground but did nothing for the reach. Then I was lucky enough to read about Mean Cycle on the HD forum and the posts convinced me that it was worth a shot. Call me crazy, but we are in the midst of blizzard in New England and the temp is 17 degrees and I just got my seat back, but couldn't wait to put the seat on. All I can say is WOW. I got the lowering I wanted and the reach improved. (I was actually considering new handlebars, but they all required cable changes.) Of course I couldn't ride, but I am extremely happy with the fit, comfort and adjustments. Can't wait until spring! I also can't say enough about the friendliness, professionalism, and customer service. They truly go the extra mile and make you feel like family.
