Hey all, just got a new BMC SL01 in the mail from CC, and my god is it a nice looking bike. I sized it out with the CC website, and also looked on the BMC website to make sure it was the correct size. I am 5' 4.5", and the BMC website says the 47cm accomidates riders from 155-165cm, or 5'1" to 5'6" or so... Well I just dropped the integrated seatpost in and it is just at the cusp of being too tall, and I cannot figure out how to make it go down any further... the bike didnt come with a specific info sheet on the seatpost. So the seatpost is right at the 16cm, and i cannot figure it out. If it can accomidate a rider that is 4 inches shorter than I am , it must go down further... or do we cut it?
Any and all help would be appreciated. For those of you who are not familiar with the BMC seatpost, it is a proprietary design, so most reason about seatposts does not come into play with this one...
