riding position. tall rider little bike.

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I have an 09 crf 450.

I feel like I can't get infront of the bike and lead it. It leads me.

I'm 6'1 long arms and long legs.

Things that suck about being tall....

My knees are far above the seat.

My arms feel all scrunched up.

I race down hill and ride a large frame bike. I don't have a problem I love the riding position.

I also ride bmx at skate parks I ride a long top tube frame for that as well.

My dads 07 feels okay why is it that my 09 450 feels like an 80?

I always find myself following it I know is not right but it always happens.

look around. There is another 'tall riders thread' that should be in the first couple pages of the mx tech forum. Main points were you have to bend at the knees a lot, butt out, head low and forward. Handle bars that are more comfortable. You want body position that pushes you through the pegs, not pulls you through the bars.
