I am a tall drink of water. It is at a comfortable height for me though.

This was the bike (the Klein) that inspired mine. Love it.

Silver is much better .... very cool bike and great built, mate.

Regarding the seat post, didn't the XT come at 33cm max.? Now i am riding a 425cm Syncros in my 20" Atitude and have at least 10-15cm left, knowing that the frames tend to crack near the seat bolt.

How much is left inside the tube?

Best

Moritz
