Townie Question -Height

I'm going to test ride a Townie this weekend but I was wondering if anyone that has one is fairly tall. I'm 5'8 and I'm worried they may be too small for me.


Any opinions/help would be most appreciated

TIA

I'm 5'8 and mine fits me great. I have the 21D model. My friend who is about 6' rode it and it fit him fine too. I think much taller and he would have started to get cramped though.

I don't think so. The seat goes up pretty high and the bars and be pulled back. I've ridden mine on 3 hours rides and was none the worse for wear.
