Aye, fitted one last week. You can't fully slam it to the seat post though, it leaves around 10mm from seat post to collar. I'm 5ft 11 and don't have it slammed.
Ah cheers, im around 6 2 so if it works for you it will probably be fine for me
One Up have their MK2 dropper back in stock now, I've got a 180mm (can be lowered to 160mm) on the way that should slam all the way in a L.

What's the seatpost to rails measurement on that baby when it's slammed as far as it can go into the frame while at full extension? I'm riiiight on the limits of being able to get a 175/180mm drop and that's the critical component.

2019 Reign 1 Large - slammed with the 180
Doesn't slam in a medium though, about 2cm exposed

A lot more space for the seatpost then 2015 and 2016 year. This is how my oneup 170mm looks in 2015 Large, and that seatpost is 3cm shorter than yours.

Yeah, newer frames have a lot more space for droppers, and I have a 2015 frame so it'll be different.

Damn. Just realised that. Need to do some checks. Still one of the shortest droppers around!

This is even lower then V1 170mm on my Large 2015. How is this possible? The 180mm seatpost should be 3cm longer than 170mm.

And you even cut the seat tube...

Hey guys have a size large 2015 reign 2, just wondering if anyone knows what size the dropper cartridge is? I need of a new one. Thanks

shorter overall lengths for the drop. This was the v2, which is a good bit shorter than the v1. It's 22mm longer in total than my 150mm dropper, and only 2mm longer than my 150 from collar to clamp due to a shorter stack height and collar sizes on the One Up.

From the measurements on One Up's site, V2 should be a bit longer for the same drop. Except the actuator, which on the V2 looks like quite shorter.
But still, can't trick the picture. Good to know...
