my LBS has informed me that when installing the seat post into the bike it stops after about 2 inches in.

anyone else confirm if this is the norm? he was wondering if the post needed to be cut to length.

can anyone confirm that the seat post can go further down into the frame?

thanks

Turns out there was some extra <material> on the inside where it was welded and it needed to be shaved down for the Tube to slide through.
