    Question for Jet9 Dropper Post users

    I've been searching around for a dropper post (getting into a couple of Enduros this year), and I've run into a little bit of an issue with finding one to fit my Jet9 Carbon. Because of the bend in the seat tube, the longest post I can use for my seat height is 370mm (I just cut the bottom off of a Thomson now), but that's not really an option with droppers since the inner workings are where I'd be cutting.
    Anyone run into the same issue? To complicate matters, I need an offset post.

    The best option I've come up with so far is to get a Specialized Command Post in the 380 length, but just switch between the "cruiser" middle setting (35mm down) and the fully dropped setting (a difference of 65mm). It's not a huge drop, but it'd definitely make a difference to me given that I'm accustomed to going at everything with a normal seat height.

    Why so short ?

    My wife has a Reverb. 355mm long with 4 inch drop to give her a seat height of 660mm from the centre of the cranks to the top of the seat inline with the seat post, One her small Jet9 RDO.

    Not a set back post I know, Just trying to work out the length.

    What seat height are you running & what frame size ?

    I often only use about 50mm drop on my set & even that can make a big difference.

    Oops... meant to say 370mm, not 270. Changed it in the OP

    My seat height is 675mm when measured the same way. Small frame
