    Dropper Post Safety

    Just purchased a Cannondale Habit 4 L frame. I used to ride a Trail 2 HT XL. When setting saddle height for the new bike the post doesn’t go high enough for my 6’2 height. In order to get the perfect fit it looks like this, question is if this is a safe set up???

    Sell it and get a post with the proper amount of insertion.

    Likely that frame doesn't fit you...

    I was wondering why OP downgraded in size? 6'2" seems XL territory

    What dropper is it? PM for details as mine is just too small for my set up.

    I would imagine that there is some “wiggle” room on that minimum insertion line; however, the problem becomes how do you know what the ultimate minimum insertion point really is.

    Personally, I would agree with the others, do not run your bike like this.
