    I can tell right away I'm gonna need to make some modifications to my Mongoose Dolomite to fit me. I'm not sure on the measurements, so I'm hoping someone can help a guy out. I'm 6ft and I need leg room and I'm too old to ride in the bent over fashion these bars are meant for.
    Can anyone lead me in the correct measurement of a layback seat post? Also, I want to put apehangers on this bike. At 6ft, what would be reasonable? 15in, 16in or 18in?
    Any and all ideas would be appreciated
    Thanks

    Do you have the Dolomite already? My wife has one. I think it will be difficult to find a layback seatpost in size 28.6.
    A banana seat and more rise on the handlebars will help.

    Have a look through some of the other posts in the FatBike area, they might help you make decisions regarding seatpost angles and bar heights.

    Unfortunately the Fatbike area has been a bit slow lately...
