Help needed

Alright I don't know much about bikes as it is... But yesterday I got on the bike and could just tell it was shorter.. My feet could easily touch the ground flat footed and that's not usually the case with me being just 6 feet tall. It really just seemed shorter on the front end... So where should I go with this? Replace the front shock? Or repair it somehow?

Flat tire?

Please tell us the model year of your bike, miles, where parked, any modifications, and any other information you can. As of now, flat tire,as said above, is best guess. We really need more to go on.

My guess is you had a growth spurt.
