    Giant minimum insertion for the seat post

    Hi
    I have a Giant Anthem x 29er 1
    In the warranty booklet it says "Riding with seat insert depth less than 80mm may result in frame damage /failure and serious personal injury"

    I just want to be 100% sure that means 80mm from the bottom of the post, there is a minimum line 100mm from the bottom then it starts with labeling from 0mm to 150mm. They dont mean 80mm on the labeling for the warrantied height?
    Thanks!

    Yes the min height line is 100mm from the bottom of the seat post which is 20mm more than the assumed minimum of 80mm in the book.
    What gave me a bit of doubt is that from the min line the labelling starts at 0mm so wanted to check if for some reason if they talking about 80mm on the labelling or 80mm from the bottom of the post.
    Thanks

    Trust the line on the post, not the book.
