I am 6'3" and ride a hardtail, trouble is, if I leave my seatpost up I cant go down hill without feeling I am about to be launched over the bars. I usually lower my saddle for this stuff on social rides, but I am about to do a few races and wonder if anyone has any advice. I ride a steel 19" hardtail with a layback post, 90mm stem.
Exactly the same height and problem Dan & I have exactly the same problem on any of my FS bikes. If you find an answer tell us mind

Same as at any size I would have thought. Are the race you are going to that Gnarly that you need to drop the seat? Just get right over the back with set in your stomach if you need to get the weight back or put higher bars on??????
Not in my experience TJ, most of the short lads I ride with have bars way above the saddle, yet mine (even on the slack angled 160mm forked skill compensating bike) are all lower than the saddle when its in a position that I can pedal anywhere other than downhill.
