Depends on how much seat post you have showing now.

Measure from seat post clamp to seat rail and
if >207mm, then 150mm or 125mm or 100mm;
if >182mm, then 125mm or 100mm
if <182mm, then 100mm
Text White Line Diagram Parallel


Reference lengths are: drop length B (150mm,125mm,or 100mm) + post head I (22mm) + collar F (35mm)

***You may also need to add G (24mm) depending on which orientation you put the cable since it could interfere with the seat post clamp (others here may be able to confirm/deny this)

KS posts are the best in my experience.

As for 125 vs 150, I went from 125 to 150 and regret it. The 150 is too much of a drop.
When I ordered my Ripley I made sure to get the 125. More is not always better in my experience.

That said, see if you can demo different posts and lengths. Ride a friend's bike, do bike demos with adjustable posts...

To each his own. I went to 150 a few years ago. Have since tried a few bikes with 125 or 100, and really don't like them as much. If there was a 175 option, I'd get that, as I have room on my bike.

I concur with Kaj, I like to have the maximum amount of travel I can get out of a post. I am running a 150mm Lev and my new fave is the Yep Components with 155mm. When I go back to 125mm it feels like the saddle gets in the way. Bikes - Ripley and HDR
