I agree with you, I'm in the same boat - 195cm tall with long legs and arms.

Most manufacturers show on their images a saddle which is level with the top of the headset. And that is normally where my saddle is with my 175mm dropper in the lowest position on a XL Transition Patrol 2017 frame!
With the new Process my butt would be over the rear axle, which will be horrible for climbing.

Thanks Konaworld for the reply, but as Ceecee stated its the actual seat tube angle that doesn't really work for me.

I have a 37.5" inseam and because of this I end up running a lot of seat post. Bikes with a slack actual seat post angle position me too far behind the bottom bracket...more

The geometry details for Lycan LT are messed up on their site - literally copy-paste from Lycan Master with the only difference 160 vs 130mm travel front/rear. I have their 2105's 271 LT (160/160) frame and the head angle is around 66, not 68.5 like on their site. However, it is true the frames are with outdated geometry, although machining and finish is good. They really need to step up their game and update the geometry. Reach is quite small for today's standards. I bought the frame for cheap last year, so can't complain too much. Planning to change it to Transition Patrol when I get a chance.
