I can touch the ground with both feet, but do not have suf­fi­cient pur­chase to com­fort­ably pad­dle the bike around. Do you know of any mod­i­fi­ca­tion kits that will en­able a re­duc­tion of the rear sus­pen­sion height so that I can get my feet on the floor eas­ier? Nigel Froude, email

An­swered by Gareth Evans, Re­ac­tive Sus­pen­sion If you like the han­dling at low and high speeds, it doesn’t make any sense to com­pro­mise that for park­ing. In­creas­ing sag will lower the ride height, but also make the han­dling worse. The best way of re­duc­ing the seat height is to get the seat mod­i­fied.
