What?yes the frame can fit 5.25 but she's using another

First of all, read about the important dimensions of dropper posts. That PNW article covers them. Now use the terms described in the article, and state your measurements in metric terms (that's how dropper posts are measured).

Read aboveWhat?

I was looking at the eten as well. Just seemed a bit long for what I was needing ?I just had to source a small dropper for an older frame. I had 95mm insertion length, and the seat tube is interrupted below by a shock. Here's the table I created. I got the KS ETEN external 325 length, 75mm drop, 100mm insertion. These are all 30.9s except for the 27.2 (which could be shimmed)

I read it. can't figure out what you're trying to say. Use the industry accepted language to describe the measurements you've taken.Read above

Sorry your having trouble. I am not going to rewrite the original question. Everyone else seems to be doing ok. Thanks for you help take care.I read it. can't figure out what you're trying to say. Use the industry accepted language to describe the measurements you've taken.

doesn't read that way to me.Everyone else seems to be doing ok.

you have to measure absolutely everything when choosing a dropper post. measure in metric. it's a helluva lot easier than converting every measurement you take so you can compare to various droppers on the market (which all have dimensions stated in metric).

Have a good day thanks for your timedoesn't read that way to me.

Measure the current seat height above the seat collar. Then you can write some formulas to see how much 'effective drop' you get with various posts (their min length is calculated and the seat height needs to be at or below the uncompressed/max length.)

Where are you measuring to on the seat post/saddle? The accepted reference point is the seat rails, so is that 5.5" (140mm) from the top edge of the seat clamp to the saddle rail?

You also don't mention if the frame has cable routing for an internal dropper or not? If you need an externally routed dropper this will eat into what you have to play with.
