Hi,

the new 2020 Rift Zone looks awesome, but the seat tube length looks super short.
430mm for an XL frame?

I am 188cm, the lower end for the XL according to Marin's size suggestion.

On my current bikes i measured 750mm center bottom bracket to seat rails.
This means i would need to pull the 175mm dropper out 90mm.

That's an awful lot of exposed seat post, not sure any fixed length seat post would fit,
certainly not for taller riders than me.

Is the ST length a typo maybe? Other frames this long have 480-520 seat tubes.

Did you end up getting the xl? If so how do you like it? I'm trying to decide if I should keep the jeffsey xxl I ordered. Reach feels a little long. Nearly same geo as the riftzone xl. I'm 190.5 cm tall.
