    I just checked my dropper, which is a Brand X (works very well). The main tube,not including the actuating mechanism, was able to go into the seat tube 6" or 152mm.

    Still have my 125mm Brand X Dropper and just checked that. With the 6" of insertion, the top of the Dropper was 9 1/2" (241mm) from top of seat tube to the top of the Dropper post.

    I had exactly the opposite problem you have. The 125 mm Brand X Dropper did not allow me to raise the seat high enough so I went to the 150mm Brand X which allowed me to get to the 450mm seat tube I needed. I'm long legged for a small frame. The 150mm Dropper only had a 1/2" or so of play to fit. a 170mm would not insert deep enough.

    Hope this helps you out.
    Thank you so much Bumbyride
    That's exactly the info I was looking for..
    It seems then that a small has very short space inside the seat tube..
    I wanted to fit a 440mm Reverb 150mm post but that would result to a too high sitting position.. I need a distance of about..650mm from center of BB and saddle rails.
    By you calculations, my seatpost would be 20mm too high..
    I then would need to buy a shorter 150mm post like a OneUp or similar..
    Don't know if I still interested in that frame anymore.. Offer was good but if I add the new post expense..maybe not much..
    Thanks again, very helpful!!!

    What you give up by passing on the Wozo is that trail oriented geometry. That short chain stay length is absolutely great. I found the 125mm dropper post more than sufficient, but I needed the length of a longer post for minimum insertion, and that's the only reason I went to a 150mm.

    I had a set of 29er wheels built up to run 2.6 tires. The bike absolutely rips in this mode.

    I find I need a new rotor on 2017 Wozo. Anyone put a 203mm on front and 180 on rear? Have the Mastodon Ext Comp Fork. Would like more braking power for long downhills.

    Also thinking about some new brakes, any suggestions without breaking the bank? Currently on Shimano BR-M447. If the 203 mm rotors are used, should give me more power with the 447s

    Not changing to another bike. At 6'4" the XL is huge and perfect. Not other fat comes even close to fit.

    ...sure wish i could figure rotation and mtbr...
    Iíve looked @ them all - nothing compares to Wozo reach and stack .
