- Minimum seatube insertion on an airborne lancaster
bit twitchy cos i’ve seen all the problems with splits etc from running a too short a seattube….
So i have a 300mm tube from van nicholas, which sits as per the below pic, when at its minimum insertion point of 80mm, about 5mm beneath the top tube.
it just so happens this fits perfectly, but is it enough insertion?
i only do light xc tbh, but am a fairly heavy 12 stone.

dyer reckon mine would be ok with light use, and going to the trouble of swapping would be a bit pointless?
i have warranty so is it a case of if its going to crack it will do so anyway?
I dont do any silly jumping or drop off’s bigger than a foot, and to be fair i have a phenom (toupe type) saddle, so that would probably give way before the frame……
I have emailed van nic, but no reply as yet.Posted 9 years ago
