Looking for any dropper post that has less than 365mm total length (when extended), in a 30.9 seatpost diameter. Don't really care about the travel length, as I'm sure pickings will be few and far between. The strange requirements are due to my girlfriends bike: it is a 2015 Liv Lust in size S, and has a stupid short max seatpost insertion depth. Almost all droppers are too tall for her. Posts I know fit into this category: - RaceFace Turbine 100mm (350mm total length) - Giant Contact 100mm (345mm total length) - KS Eten 75mm (350mm total length) - Rockshox Reverb 100mm (340mm total length) - Specialized Command Post 75mm (355mm total length) Most of these sell for $100-$200 used and in good condition, so thats the price range I'm looking for. Thanks!

Specialized Update Enduro for 2018 - First Look - Crankworx Whistler 2017
Dumb question: Why is the reach on the 27.5 longer than on the 29? Wouldn't it make sense that the 29er be a longer bike?

2016 Specialized Crave SL 29. Fully rigid single speed baby! Size XXL, but it runs pretty small and fits like an XL (I'm 6'6 and if they made a larger size I would have purchased it). $800 OBO All tech specs of the bike here: https://www.specialized.com/us/en/crave-sl-29/106470 Condition is excellent, only some superficial scratches to the paint. Brakes are freshly bled, and whole bike is tuned. Bike comes stock, with the following upgrades: - Shimano XT SPD pedals - ESI Extra Chunky Silicone Grips - Pink flush headset cap (increases sex appeal) - Tubeless Tire Setup w/ Stans sealant installed This bike made my world go round for the brief time I was able to ride it. I've always been more of an trail/enduro/DH rider, but I bought this bike to sharpen up my "real" riding skills (i.e. the skills that 6" of suspension travel causes you to forget). It is absolutely my favorite bike to ride. It is incredibly light and playful, and very responsive to pedal input. I crushed a few XC races on it, and it beat out plenty of people on hardtails even in SS configuration. If you are an experienced mountain biker and looking for a bike to make you better, this is your tool. If you are a novice, but tall and looking for a good bike to start, this might be the bike for you. Right now it has a carbon fork, but it is easily converted to a standard hardtail if you put a fork on it. Also supposedly is convertible to have gears, I just deliberately purchased the SS configuration because I wanted to get better at biking :-) Also could be a flashy campus/city bike that occasionally hits the dirt! I'd like to keep the saddle, as it fits my bum well and we all have different rear-ends anyway right? If this is a deal breaker we can negotiate. Also, I ask that you pay for shipping please.
