    Sweet. I jumped that line when it was still under construction!

    Man that is a long seat post. For the life of me I don't
    understand why anyone would ride with the seat that high.
    I understand not wanting it slammed but too high just
    looks unsafe and the above picture is the result. That's just
    my opinion tho what do I know

    For XC riding (or any type of riding where you want to pedal efficiently), proper saddle height is basically a function of leg length. Your saddle should be high enough to get almost full leg extension when the pedal is in the 6 o'clock position. This feels unnatural for people who are used to riding with their seat low and who like to be able to put a foot on the ground while on the saddle. For other types of riding (Dirt jumping, AM to a degree, DH, etc) pedaling efficiency isn't as important. You're often coasting or going down hill, so it's not as big a deal. Being able to maneuver the bike and get off the saddle is more important when doing that kind of riding. Hope that helps...

    That's great and all but he ain't riding xc trail. I could list a number of reasons he failed do to his seat position.

    Agreed. He's the definition of a fish out of water...

    Definitely. Clipless pedals dramatically increase pedaling power and efficiency mainly because you can pull on the upstroke as well as push on the downstroke. Of course, in situations where you might need to occasionally get off your bike in a hurry or put a foot down on a corner, being clipped in doesn't make much sense.

    He failed due to weight distribution. Seat position has nothing to do with that. It certainly helps, but getting the weight distributed relative to the CG of the potential pivot point of the bike is paramount.

    Negative, when you are falling over it is much faster to turn a clipped in shoe and slide off the pedal than it is to lift a soft shoe off a spiked flat pedal

    I should have said "doesn't make as much sense", although I don't think your statement above is universally accepted as fact...
