    Hi Kratos-

    At your height (6'2"), you can get by with any size really. I'd recommend 380 or 420mm post. You will have plenty of seat post insertion on an XL frame and still have more than enough adjustment range.

    Agreed.

    Also, the drop length is the same on all of them, so only the post size is different. This means the different lengths will only vary the amount of post that you can have inserted into the seat tube. At 6'0 and on a large, I only have about 1.5" of seat tube exposed (in the lowest position) and that is more than enough. At full extension with that my leg is almost fully extended, perfect pedal strokes!

    Aaand...

    The Reverb Stealth works well with THE ONE, here is a write up I did on that.
