Thinking about buying one of these second hand, but worried that I want to put the post too high thus breaking the frame. I have no desire to exceed the minimum mark on the post, it's the limit on the frame I'm bothered about.
Canyon don't specify a minimum insert distance for the frame, they have one manual for all their MTBs which just says "make sure [the seat post] end reaches beyond the top tube".
Unlike on most bikes though, the nerve top tube is significantly flared at the seat tube end:
...so do they mean ... the top of the tube ... the middle of the tube ... or the bottom of the tube? This makes a lot of difference. The seat tube is solid where the top tube joins btw - no hole or anything.
Opinions sought please. Longer post isn't an option as it's a dropper post which is part of the package really. Asked customer service three days ago, no response.
