I just got a used 2002 Kona Stinky 18", and I must say I love the bike! I'm about 5' 11", and do some XC riding with the bike, and unfortunetly, the seat post that came with the bike is quite short, I measured the post to be 203mm long. So in doing a quick search online, I found most seat posts to have a length of 350mm, wheres the other 147mm from my post!!? Soon I'll be doing downhill, so I want a beefy post, and was wondering if you guys have any posts that I should look at, and any that I should avoid. ALSO, I was looking at the Titec Hellbent DH post, which has 1.5" of offset, and it looks pretty good, as I'd like to get my weight more over the back wheel to take advantage of the rear shock when riding XC. Does using a post with more offset mean I don't have to raise my seat as high compared to if I were using a straight post, or does the offset only affect where I sit in relation to the rear wheel?
