If you like the extraneous dong hanging there, hey man... Whatever floats your boat! :-)
    Since it seems there is no good magic gear for the Highball - you'd rather go derailleur than tensioner?

    I have mine set up with a soulcraft convert. I'm not crazy about running a tensioner, but it does work. Since the convert keeps constant tension, no... There is no slipping.

    Has anyone tried a reverb dropper post in their Highball Carbon? im wondering if a 420mm will be fine or if I should get the 380mm length

    The overall length will be dictated by how tall you are and how much exposed seatpost you need to accommodate your height. What others are doing doesn't have any bearing in that regard. Start by measuring from the top of the seat collar to the center of the saddle rails on your existing setup, and go from there. Desired travel (100mm vs 125mm on non-stealth) is more subjective.

    Thanks

    I knew it was a bit of a 'how long is a piece of string' question...with Santa saying 100mm in to the frame i wondered if it had a bearing on the =dropper posts people were using...had a good deal on a reverb but ive ordered both sizes and will measure once its built up then send unused back.

    Just finished my 2014 HBC build. Been able to get a few rides out on it. Like all the reviews said, it's super fast and compliant. LOVE! this bike. Large Frame weighed just over 1100grams, and total bike weight is just under 22lbs with dropper post and 2.25 tires.

    Hi guys, was wondering if anyone tried running a fork that is less than the recommended length (100mm). Iwas thinking of running 90mm and was wondering if anyone is running this configuration and how does it feel ? My fork can't be converted and would rather use it with -10mm than getting a longer one. Any thoughts ? I will run it as SS config btw.
