    2017 Smuggler - Minimum seatpost insertion??

    Hi, building up a large 2017 Smuggler - 5'11" tall - does anyone know the recommended MINIMUM seat post insertion on these frames?

    I've emailed Transition - just waiting on a reply.

    I know the old role of thumb was to make sure the base of the seat tube extended below the bottom weld of the top tube/seat post junction, but that's not easy with these new dropped top tube frame designs.

    Transition said;

    You should just follow the minimum insertion line marked on whatever seatpost you have. Usually it is 80mm or sometimes 100mm.

    Cheers,

    Ok, thank you. Reverb has 80mm minimum insertion depth and at 95mm I should be safe.
