My wife with a 31" inseam rides the OEM gel seat.
She likes the seat. However she is on her tip toes (okay maybe balls of her feet, but definitely not heels down)
I'm not sure how much seat reworking can be done, there is basically no foam on the pan of the OEM gel seat now (that's how they lowered it 2").
If you are near central NC, you are welcome to check it out.
