hi,

I am 5'10" with a 31" inseam. will be getting a 17" frame from eBay and would like to know if a layback seatpost is required? A bit worried that the frame might be a tad small. I have a 100mm stem. Would laybacks be a big issue on descents with loose shorts getting tangled?

thx!!

It will all depend on how the reach feels to you. My girlfriend has to use a layback to get her weight centered properly on the bike. FWIW, the Kikapu originally came with a 1" layback post.
