Ask Pinkbike: Bikes for Smaller Riders, & Saddle Suggestions
@just6979: My point exactly. With guys like us needing to run our saddles several inches + above our bars to comfortably pedal, the current crop of "normal" droppers at 150mm leave the saddle way up. Adding some height to the bars makes the seated pedaling position more comfortable due to less craning over forwards, but it doesn't get around the need for a higher saddle than the average rider when extended, but the same height as the average rider when dropped. Seat height to bar drop is just a way of visualising it, but no a critical factor

Ask Pinkbike: Bikes for Smaller Riders, & Saddle Suggestions
If nothing else, the photo of Tom and Roxy illustrates something I've been saying (albeit inwardly) for a long time. A lot of people argue that there is no need for super long travel dropper posts because slamming your saddle lower and lower isn't the solution to riding rough/steep stuff or whatever. But one thing that I want to point out, as shown by Tom's saddle height, is that some of us have extremely long legs and need to run our saddles stupidly high to effectively put power down. But in this position, even a 150mm drop post still leaves us (me) a bit prone. So I get why a super long travel post isn't really of that much use to a lot of people, but from my perspective it isn't about getting the saddle so much lower in the dropped position than everyone else, but more about maintaining the same height dropped position, whilst having a much higher extended position. Anyone else in a similar position?

Review: Orbea Rallon M-LTD
@RedBurn I would swear this new Rallon has been around for a while before the Spesh was released.

Lol, I carefully chose my team in round one and did terribly. Completely forgot to change my team this time and moved 12,000 places up the table.

@Slabrung: because that's how Pinkbike comments section works. If you say something negative about a person (unless its Brian Lopes or Tony Ellsworth) you get downvoted. If on the other hand you say something negative about a bike, a component, or a manufacturer you get upvoted. You just have to learn the rules.
