The points you make were the exact same way I felt about my Sargent the
short time I had it. I sent it back for a refund. Seems like the taller
guys had no problems with it, but under 6', it wasn't such a great fit.
I have a Corbin now, but took a bit of fiddling to make it fit. It's OK,
but still liked the way you sat on the stock seat better.
