6'1" here and never got that feeling yet. Are you getting cramped or just feel like you are too high in the air?

I'm 6'1" and I feel a tad too tall, like when in full tuck, my elbows overlap my knees. I feel like they should almost rest on my thighs, like that's how a bike is supposed to fit. But atleast I don't stick my elbows out like the mouse on the motorcycle.

i'm 6'1" 190. Just sitting and cruising is really annoying. But cornering its all good. I'll get a knee down b4 someone else, just because of my heigth. So its not getting the knee down that matters, but since the knee is used just as an idictor - being taller might actually help you know how low you are before someone else. gotta find positive things in anything

Well being 5'4" and dragging a knee for me is almost to the very edge of losing traction. When I drag a knee I know if I lean one to two more inches I'm going to low side it-I've found this out once on the track and once on the street. Not fun.
