What seat height do you run ??Shure. My heigt is 178cm, so size M would be the right one, I guess.
My seat height is 765mm.What seat height do you run ??
I have 2 friends with med Rip9 RDO & both have gone with the 100mm travel 355mm reverbs.
One uses 725mm seat height & the other is quite a bit less is I remember right.
Ok 163mm insertion on my friends Med Rip9 RDO & that's including the clamp height.My seat height is 765mm.
I really would like to use a new dropper post from a German manufacturer with 170mm drop.
But for that I would need 185mm insertion with my seat height.
Don't know where you got that quote from, but that was me. Sorry, I thought I had specified, but I guess in editing and changing some stuff around I left it out.Which size? And what is the maximum insertion for the post?
Well, the XL frame gives you 50mm more room to play with than the large, maybe a bit less, as you've got the radical bend in the tube and whatnot. As I said before, with a rigid post, I was able to get about 216mm of that post into the seat tube. According to the image I've inserted below, the Thomson max insertion is 212 mm. The entire post is, as you say, 400mm in length.Rufus:
How did this workout for you? I have the exact same setup issues/choices as you, only I'm on an XL instead. My RIP will be my 5th Niner - and they've all been XL. I am trying to figure out whether I can go with a Thomson or not, as they use a 400mm post. I'm going to contact Niner in a bit here - and get a definitive answer. Just curious to hear how your scenario played out.
