I lowered my '14 CCT 2 inches. No issues with ride quality or handling. You may have to play with your air pressure in the rear shock a bit. It depends on what u weigh, how much you carry, inseam length, passenger on board etc. etc. etc. I found that out thanks to some really crappy roads in PA!! I now have 3 different shock settings (air press), that I use. 1 for me, no trunk, 1 for me WITH trunk, semi loaded, and the 3rd with a passenger & loaded trunk.
You also may want to think about the lowered kickstand. Some will say that you just have to be careful how/where you park. You can be vigilant on that and your baby may still want to lay down for a nap!! Ask me how I know that!!!
