Dropper post dimensions

Trying to size a dropper for my girlfriend, shes got an extra small norco range, so the bent seat tube limits how far the post can go in. 167mm in this case!

I found this sizing chart which I found pretty handy.



On a side note, looks like she only has 2 options for her post!

All those measurements are important, but so is her seated riding height? If you get a post that allows full insertion, there may not be enough travel for her to use it at full extension. Im guessing you have worked out all those numbers. Out of interest which two options are you left with?

the shortest ks lev and ks cobra since they have the shortest insertion lengths.

Ended up ordering the lev, it should fit her perfectly (i hope!)

If you can find a saddle with lower rails to top, it helps.
might try thicker pedals as well.
