Video: Time Traveling on a Kona Cinder Cone
That's hilarious! He used an "under chamois" for protection. But we think the "memory" leaked through...

The Process frames are designed to work with a dropper post only, and we spec different length posts across the sizes. The XL bicycles ship with the longest option from KS. We found when we were developing this bike, that shorter riders riding bike with traditional sizing could not get there dropper posts low enough, or, their dropper posts are as low in the frame as they can get. We realized that this is a waste of metal (weight) and you could design a bike with a lower ST which would allow for much more standover (important on the larger sizes). So that is what we went with, and it allows the standover we get with our frames. We have riders from 5'4" to 6'5" or more (chris mandell) riding process bikes and finding a size that works for them.

Yes, size the bike based on reach, not ST length.

there is a lot more to the bikes than the leverage ratio graphs, if you look at that you are missing everything else ;)
