I feel your pain in like 5’9- 5’8 one of the two. Im on the balls of my feet with the standard seat. I got the low seat and it did help some but still can’t flat foot. It did help a little. Others mentioned in my post about buying a used seat for cheaper and cutting foam to your specs. Lowering link will def throw off bikes dynamic. Not sure how much it will be affected by pivot point but probably not to the degree of a lowering link I would think and kickstand should still be fineProblem with lowering link is that i'll need a different/adjusted kickstand. and it also throws off the bike dynamic - i tried on a former bike. I'm just at the ball of my feet at 5'6.
