I have my bike on the lowest height at the rear (dont get confused with spring pre-load).

Recently I rode another bike, the same model, and the first thing I noticed was the seat was lower to the ground... actually a pretty normal height.

How can this be? Are there some differences?
Or, it was just which parts the Italians could find on the day, hmm.

ride height different


The ride height front and/or rear was lowered more than yours

The spring preload front and/or rear was set different than yours

The springs front and/or rear were changed and are softer than yours

Maybe the tires front and/or rear are different than yours (with a smaller diameter)

Maybe the suspension front and/or rear has been modified (to lower the bike)

Maybe the sag on the front and/or rear has been set different than yours

Maybe the air pressure in the front and/or rear tire was lower than yours

Maybe the subframe and/or seat have been modified to lower the seat height

Maybe the springs front and/or rear have sagged over time; more than yours

Maybe a combo of above

Re: ride height different

When I bought mine it came with a second pair of rear suspension link arms and they drop the back of the bike.
