gotcha. I stopped by a local dealer today on my way home. They had a Cheetah 52" demo unit sitting in the show room. I had slightly more room on the Cheetah than the TC but maybe by an inch. I still didnt fit under than handle bars. but MAN that suspension platform was sweet. The whole operator area has a shock absorber on it and its like an air ride seat.....Pretty slick but I don't think I can justify the increase in price. Still leaning toward the TC with the suspension seat. it's better on the hemorrhoids.
