I am a little over 6' and have a #2 -3. Cee Baileys measurements are a little funky, but this height lets me look over the shield with very little buffeting in the down position. With it up a couple of inches, the airflow is thrown completly over your head.
There are numerous posts on the board and in the archive describing the differnces in the measurements between stock and Cee Baileys. Check it out, get out the tape measure, and you'll be in business in no time.
I am 6ft 1, sit straight and tall in saddle, 32 leg inseam, I choose the #2 without wings. -1. this low enough to see over but cuts down buffeting for pass but still get some wind over top all the way down and yet goes high enough in rain to hide behind. -2 would be equal to stock height, the flip at the top adds a little bit. have only had it for a month and have not ridin in rain yet. I wanted mine a little bit higher for buffeting control but i wanted to see over. I feel if you ride in a lot of rain or commute the wings might be an advantage, if you are a fair weather rider not need i feel, just my opinion
I am 5'9" with 31 inch inseam. I had a #2 with wings, and a -2. I couldn't quite see over it in the down position, but the air flow was good. I got a -4 with wings, and now I can see over it fine, and the wind control for me is good. BUT, my wife says there is too much wind for her, esp when it is down. If I had to do it again, I would get the -3. My opinion only.
