The Cinder Cone is a 91 in the real colour, not the incorrect colour shown in the catalogue. It looks as though it isn't big enough for you, in which case the D'jab is nowhere near big enough for you! For either a Kona or a VooDoo, I would recommend that the seat post be long enough to reach 5cm below the top tube/seat tube weld.

More and better-quality pics of the D'jab would be appreciated.

[D'jab means a wild and powerful spirit that may do either good or bad.]

i know the seatpost is long but i know when i fit a bike because for me the upper tube is more important than the seatpost.
In rough terrain it can drop an inch but not more than that if i want some power on the pedals.

Concerning the voodoo it's a bigger bike than the kona so it will fit for sure.

oh and everybody thanks for the compliments soon there will be better pics of the voodoo. The build is almost finished
