I ride XC and really like the reach on my bike, but my 150mm one up post is past the min insertion. Are there any good 30.9 seatposts out there?
OneUp makes a 210mm dropper, too. In 30.9... I have two of these. These would give you more frame insertion.

This is sometimes a red flag, because you are putting a long lever on the bike. Min insertion just means you won't break the seatpost, the frame is still fair game and if the dropper post is too long, it may mean frame failure eventually.

It really depends on the situation, but it's always worth saying. Some bikes have been reinforced in this area, some not so much. It may mean too small of a frame.
