    Biting the bullet on the dropper post! Need help!

    I currently ride a Anthem 3, 2017 for my XC / trail ripper. Absolutely amazing.

    However, I noticed something was lacking when I picked up a Trance last summer, a dropper post.

    I thought it was just another moving part I'd have to service, but I NEED a dropper post now.

    Currently looking at the https://www.kssuspension.com/product/e20i/

    It's selling for $200 at one retailer I'm looking at. The only available model however is the 150mm option. At a length of 485 mm, would this be able to fit inside?

    Common sense says that it depends on the riders inseam if a certain dropper post will fit, considering seattube length, insertion clearance and diameter all fit too.

    But what do I know

    Measure down your seat tube to the first intrusion, bend, etc., that'll give you max insertion length. Measure exposed seat tube at full extension. With those 2 measurements you can figure out what will work. KS are very nice droppers other than the e-10. PNW droppers are about the best value droppers I have experience with.
    It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

    After doing more reading, to make things A LOT more simpler, I am just going to buy the Giant Contact dropper post instead. I know it fits the newer anthems, same geo, so just smack her in.

    yeah go all in and take the 150mm.

    Seatpost sizing is hard to understand nowdays but as you said it fits the Anthem frame and that's the most important thing.
