    Any Dropper with a 285mm overall length - Wife bike needs a dropper

    Wife XC full suspension bike needs a dropper.

    Can only get 100mm of saddle insertion until frame starts bending. There is still room for the internal cables.
    So far I can't find anything with such short length.

    Found this french list of dropper posts specs, but looks pretty outdated:

    Anyone had a similar problem ? Maybe there is a model that I could cut the travel shorter and get the 285mm overall.

    You have the BikeYoke Devine SL that can be cut to 283mm with 80mm of travel.

    OneUp Droppers are adjustable, and one of the shortest overall lengths around, I believe

    Dont forget about PNW Components. Believe their new RIDGE line has some short travel variants and know they have a more CX oriented line as well.

    Man, that thing is short!

    Our best is a 120mm @ 360mm (shimmable to 100mm @ 340mm). The bikeyoke above will work or the 9point8 which is 75mm @275mm. Both will cost you ~$400USD though.

    looks like the 9point8 is the way to go considering no cutting is needed.
