I'm 5'6" and weigh 175 with gear thinking of trying a skins 3" riser and Rasmussen post forward setup. Is anyone else running this setup that could give some feedback? I ride a 19 freeride. Im also thinking of trying Rasmussen rear spring setup and keeping my reservoir shocks. I know I'll have to soften up the valving in them due to a much firmer spring. I have to ride some trails to get to the gold

I ran a forward post on XM, never even considered it any of my G4 sleds. Shorter riser every sled, yes. I am 5'9". Try the riser before the post, on my XM you had to do some hack work to make it work, I wasn't happy with it.

I’m riding the same handle bar set up on my 2020 and ran it on my 17. I love it and wouldn’t go back. 5,6 180lbs post forward at 2” and a 3 inch riser.

Slightly off topic, but this year I'm trying the grip and rip isovibe combined with the expert length riser (4.7") for a combined riser height of 6" which happens to be perfect for my arm and torso length at 5' 8". Hopefully it helps with the hand numbness I was getting from track vibration (165 3") when cruising at speeds over 70km/h on some longer rides in. MVIMG_20191207_152024.jpg
