:screwy: Shorter people tend to lower the bike so they could touch the ground while on the bike. Usually when they're learning and not as confident yet with not touching the ground.Grafixx01 said:Can someone explain to me the point in lowering a bike? I just haven't read much on it, but I don't know if it is much like lowering a car. But then I figure that a bike is low enough to the ground so why put it further with all the stuff in the road that you can hit? I mean, on a daily basis I see people going over speedbumps on an angle or going completely around them.
