    Hendrix Seat post length and dropper length

    Hi, I have a Hendrix on order, want to start the ball rolling on a dropper. Does anybody know what the length of the stock post is? Or if the bike will accomodate a 430mm length one? Size XL frame. The frame has a bend where the seat post goes in so not sure. I would like to get the 150mm travel dropper which is 430mm long. Thanks

    Hendrix dropper

    I have a 296mm insert length on my dropper and it fits just fine on a medium frame. Total dropper length is 420mm with 100mm travel. So yours with a 430mm total length and 150mm travel should be fine.

    Sorry to derail this thread a bit, but Fronthole would you mind sharing your impressions of the Hendrix so far?

    I've not had a chance to really put it through the paces thus far. We (wife and I) took it out for a ride and absolutely loved it. I'm currently on a 15 Troy, and I'd give it up for a Hendrix. The bike was super stable and would just roll over anything. Climbing, my least favorite activity, was super easy. I'd just drop it in the 42t and it would tractor right up the hill. Traction was amazing. We swapped out the 780mm bar for a shorter 700mm and it made the bike feel more responsive.
    I wondered how it would feel with the shorter travel compared to the Troy, but it feels like it has way more travel than 110mm.
    Basically the bike was all smiles all day!
    Likely riding all weekend and can update once I've had more than one session on it.

    Start up a Hendrix thread when you get a bit more time on it. I already want to add one next to my Troy as well...might as well fuel the fire. More detailed comparisons would be cool.

    Did you try asking your brother?
    I dreamed I ate a 10 lb marshmallow. When I awoke, my pillow was gone.

    I sought out my brother, in all of his splendor and wisdom and knowledge. I was sharply rebuked and turned away. He said my endeavor was folly and that I am but a plus-sized fool.

    I think you need to kick your brother's buttocks.
