To those of you out there who do a bit of freeriding, you'll understand the importance of lowering your seat to a point where its out of the way while doing drops/hucks. When I first bought my mtb the seat post was way to high for anything, so I cut it down quite substantially and didn't think much more of it. But lately i've attempted a few more 'technical' drops which require me to position myself right over the back of the bike and i've found that my seat seems to get in the way (I went straight over the handlebars the other day after nosing a landing pretty bad cause i wasn't far enough over the rear). Now I'm thinking that maybe i should cut it down more, but im not sure because i also ride frequently with the seat right up and even now I ride with less post below the clamp ('in' the frame - if that makes sense ) than recomended (i think the recommended minimum insertion is about 100mm - but im only a small guy (about 60kg - not sure what that is in lbs) so im not sure if that matters so much. I hope im making sense here. Do you guys think its safe to cut it down more?
