good to see another taller rider (i'm 189cm) on an S4, love that it's reasonably flickable at this size.
Have a 210mm OneUp post but unsure re shovin a 240mm in there as already there's a bit of post showing with the 210mm installed

Although you're deffo on the lighter side than me (-20kg)! i'm running a 600lbs spring in my SuperDeluxe Ultimate Coil

Had to warranty my frame recently due to headset cup cracking. Seems it didn't like something I did to it in Tasmania!

The rundown:
193cm, 78kg / 6'4", 172 pounds

S4 frame
DHX2 @ 450 spring (considering slightly firmer spring. Also I run the X2 on smoother 'funner' stuff.)

I’m on an S3 at 182cm - Same as Charlie Murray. I think a lot of people would probably have more enjoyment for the sort of riding they do, on the smaller of the two sizes that fit them. Unless you’re smashing bike park laps and DH tracks, or compensating for lack of ability with the additional stability, the smaller size makes things surprisingly nimble.

186cm on a S5 and find this bike more movable and flickable then my Large 2018 X wing! I find the extra space the bike gives me enables me to manipulate the bike more with body movements and not end up chewing the bars or kneeing the stem when in tight trails and trees etc

Guys, guys, it’s obvious that S4 is the happy medium here. Which is what I happen to ride.

Im finding the topic of brake adapters to be very confusing stuff. Could anyone lend a hand?

Plan: SRAM Codes on 220/200mm HS2 rotors, 2022 S4 frame and 2023 Zeb fork.

Really struggling to reach a conclusion with any degree of certainty here, and would hugely appreciate a hand in figuring out what i've got to buy in order to make things fit.
Thanks in advance.

I run 200mm Sram discs front and back.
Zeb: 200mm as stock. No adapter needed.
Rear: 180mm as stock. You need a +20mm post to post adapter, and longer bolts with cup and cone bits.

Sorry I miss read that. Where is your 220 going, front or back?

220mm is going on the front. I found that the minimum size rotor for the zeb is 200, so i assume i'll need a +20mm post to post adapter for that too? Thanks.

Yep. Zeb is 200 on the fork lowers and the frame is 180 on the lugs. 2x +20mm post to post adapters is what you need.

Anyone figured out a good way to mount a motion activated (non-magnetic) cadence sensor? I'm using the Garmin and Magene S3+ sensors (both of which are really small) but clearance is a real problem.

I think the Saris one has one of the lowest profiles. What crank are you using?

Thanks for the recommendation. I'm using a Raceface Next R, which is admittedly a bit on the chunky side. I have an old Next SL I could probably swap in and get a few more millimeters of room to play with, but I'd prefer to stick with the current crank if I can get cadence to work in an agreeable way.

Side comment: PSA for anyone wanting to use 220mm rear rotors. Clearance is *really* tight for +40mm adapters. I had to ditch the TRP adapter I was going to use because it the edge of the adapter would have taken a bite out of the seat stay had I cinched it down. However the equivalent Magura adapter fits fine - no clearance issues.

Sounds like you found a solution to the TRP adaptor issue. Another solution is to just relieve the offending corner of the TRP adaptor with a grinder. Works just fine.

I used Magura QM45 adapter when going to 220mm and it fitted fine with no issues
