Am i wasting my time :(

After riding over the forest with it, Its fantastic but I have a small problem of not being able to pedal her without feeling cramped. To cut a long story short its 6 inches shorter than I normally ride between front wheel eyelet and handlebars :shock: . I have got some nitto bullmoose bars on the way that will hopefully give me a better rise up front but just been playing in the garage and got the seatpost up where it needs to be for my usual riding height (i was riding about an inch short due to min insert mark) .....

The bike is too small for me isnt it :cry:
