200mm PNW in an S5 with about 40mm exposed. I think the e13 are still the lowest profile and they make a 210 and 240 if you're all ate up with inseam.

I’ve riding an S4 and just bought a OneUp 210mm. I have a shorter torso and longer legs so it “should” work with at most one shim. A buddy riding an S3 with average dimensions fit a 200mm a trans-X with no issues.

I ride an S4 and just threw a 210 mm Oneup on. I am 6 ft for reference. Feels like a completely different bike on the downs now.

Can you fit those 200/210 droppers all the way in to the s4 or do you have some dropper seatposf showing above the bike frame ?

Nope it won't slam all the way down, but the seat tube is short enough that you can get the seat low enough for a lot of people. I'm 6'2 with a long torso (so probably similar inseam to people who responded above) and the OneUp 210 at a cm or two above maximum insertion is perfect for me.

Hi all, being lazy here. Any recommendations for longer dropper posts on an S4? Would love about 200mm but wondered how much post would sit above the seat clamp?

I’m 5’10” (178cm) and run the full 210mm OneUp on a S4 with Zero issues. Just enough post sticking out to clamp with a park tool workstand. About 10mm spare insertion.

Spring compatibility... 2 friends have the new Cane Creek Tigon on their bikes and I'm getting a little bit antsy to spend money I don't exactly have on a coil. I'm also seeing good reports on the RS SDU coil. Considering both/either in this case because I don't have the budget for Push or EXT.

I weigh 230+ geared up and I'm running the Cascade Link with a DVO T3. Cascade's leverage ratio is 3.2:1, so 230*3.2=736. This points to a 750lb spring being a good starting point.

Or, I ditch the cascade link and use the stock linkage. 230*2.8=644: very close to the Cane Creek max spring weight of 650lb, and well over the Rock Shox max spring weight of 600lb.

Are there other springs that are compatible with either option? Any other Clyde's out there with a coil on this bike? What did you go with?

Lots of discussion here on cascade link + wrp yoke for mullet setup. But is it possible to only use the wrp yoke for a mullet setup? Or is it designed to be used with the 27.5 Specialized link?

Context is I have a 29/29 Evo that I'm converting to mullet. I do NOT want more travel (have a bigger bike for that) but I want mullet without ruining the kinematics.

The WRP yoke link was made to work with the spesh 29er bridge link,

So I can do just the WRP yoke, and keep my 29 link to go mullet?

Correct. Standard link and WRP yoke will set you up perfectly for a mullet and keep all factory geo and kinematics.

Or standard yoke and specialized mullet link!

Got it, I think this is the direction I'll go. Thanks!

This seems like the inexpensive route but may require volume spacers. Also a good option it seems.

WRP yoke is awesome! Works great!
