    RIP9 Small Alum dropper options

    My buddy just ordered a new RIP9 small alum and it comes with a 150mm dropper. The frame will not allow to insert the dropper much past the insert. This results in a 32+ inseem. My worry even a 125mm will be too big. Still waiting to hear back from Niner on what they use on their small and xs. Anyone know offhand or know if the smallest option? Thanks in advance!

    Small frame rip9 here, went with a 75mm travel specialized post. To have a use able post at full extension total length had to be under 370mm for me, and im around 5'6.

    I started with a 125mm travel post and it was useless at full extension, i could barely touch the pedals lol.
