Alright, so I *finally* picked up my Trek Mamba 29'er from the LBS on Saturday. Unfortunately, it has been non-stop rain since then so it is sitting idle waiting for the weather to clear and the work-week to end.
I did some preliminary adjustments to the saddle height. The Mamba comes with a 400mm seat-post. When adjusted for proper leg extension (heel just touching pedal at the 6 o'clock position) the seat post is only about 1-1.5" from bottoming out in the bracket (I'm fairly short.. 5'9")
Should I consider getting a 350mm seat post to allow a wider range of adjustment (ie: dropping the saddle when on a long descent) ?
I *think* 350mm would still be plenty long enough to allow for my proper ride height and allow more room to drop the saddle/shift back behind it.
I'm still adapting to not being able to touch the ground when sitting on the saddle..so this is probably a bit of a premature question, but I figured it was worth asking.
It'll be nice to actually be able to ride the thing.. The wait is killing me!
