It will be a stretch -- I´ve been riding mine for two days now (about 120 miles so far), and I´m 6 foot even. I find it a very good fit, but I think you may be on the edge. Short answer -- find a dealer who´ll let you sit on one (at least). The weight is lower than it might appear; most of the tank is lower than it might seem, and the drivetrain sits very low. I would not recommend this bike to someone 5-6 to 5-8; 5-9 to 5-10 with 32" inseam is workable, but will mean getting adjusted. 6-0 with 33/34 inseam (me) is like they built it just for me.
