    How important is X Seam

    Looking at a used bent on E-bay. Listed as an X seam of 42. My X=seam is about 43, maybe a hair less! The guys says the seat travel is 7 inches and for him (X-Seam of 42) the seat is halfway down the 7 inch travel?
    Is this close enough and would it fit?
    Guess I should get the seller's height and weight, too. Seems pretty close for me, though.
    Thanks for any advice or information. Bob

    Yes, it appears to have enough room to accommodate you. The sliding seat means there is no sliding boom, so chain length adjustment is not an issue.
    I'll gently rise and I'll softly call
    Good night and joy be with you all.
