    Oneup 170mm post in a medium Slayer?

    Hey men,

    Has anyone put a 170mm oneup post in there medium 2017/18 Slayer?

    I'm about to install one. However it looks marginal for post depth in the frame. Before i scratch up the new post and render it non returnable i'd like to see if someone else had installed one?

    Depends on how long your legs are. Medium Slayer has a 432mm seat tube which is relatively short. I don't see a max insertion depth listed on their site. I have a 32" inseam and am running a 175mm KS Lev on my large HD4 which has a 445mm seat tube lenth with plenty of room to spare.

    It fits. But its not an ideal cable angle at the bottom of the travel. I'm running about 50mm up and that seems to be ok.

    Just wondering how long of a ridged post will fit a size M if I like to drop my saddle to the rails. I won't be running a dropper because I'll be using it for all up all down trails and lift service. It's hard to tell but it looks like a ridged post will bottom on the bent seat tube? If I have to run a dropper to get full extension no big deal it just wont' be needed.
