In what way, please?
if you setup the seat at the ideal height to pedal, every time you stop the bike you would need to be on the tip of your toes. With the drop post every time I stop the bike, I can comfortably put my feet on the floor and be stable. A couple of times that I forgot to drop the seat I almost fell to the side because of the heavy weight of the bike.
 
I just ordered a Ortlieb Velo Shopper. I don’t really need HD waterproofing, and prefer the easier opening top. I do like the look of their QC-2.1 attachment system.
We have the Veloshopper on my wife's Homage mainly for the zippering opening, we also removed the shoulder strap from that one as well, I sure you will be happy with it.

This bag came with my ride. Similar to the R&M bag. I have it on the back for now until as it blocks the light a bit on the front. Looking at moving my light, but will see on this later down the line. One step at a time.

So I got the Ortlieb Velo Shopper, and while I want to like it, I don't. I like it's QC 2.1 mounting system, but I don't like it's size/shape. With the taper at the bottom, you can't even put a carton of eggs in the bag without standing them on end. I've been using https://banjobrothers.com/collections/panniers/products/market-pannier on my previous bike, and while they are clearly kinda cheaply made compared to the Ortlieb, they actually fit groceries much better. I also like that it's easy to leave the lid of the bag open or to fold the lid inside the bag. The other day I put a pair of folding chairs in the Banjo Brothers, and just had them sticking 2' out the top. I can't comfortably do that with the Ortlieb.

Anyone have any other good recommendations that will fit on a SD rack? I don't need waterproofness. I may just try to see what I can do to make panniers that attach with a bungee on the bottom work on the SD, as that opens up more options.

I have R&M's front carrier bag on order (ETA by end of the month), so that will cover me for smaller items I want to bring along.
 
we use a Velo shopper on my wife's Homage and she likes it because of the zipper opening. I have an Ortlieb urban on my SD which is more typical Ortlieb shape but has roll top and is not huge. But I like it a lot and find it fits well though i had to adjust the bottom mount to accommodate the size of the SD rack rails. Tight on the top but I find it works as advertised.

Dropping the seat at traffic lights & for getting on and off would help me (crook back). I've got the GT, so tossing up between an after-market dropper & the Cane Creek Thudbuster. Even though the Super Delite has dual suspension, I am thinking the movement of the Thudbuster helped a lot on my previous Supercharger. If I can get the two together I might just?

The SD suspension can be set up so soft that I can't imagine needing anything additional. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised when you ride it.

Agreed, I was surprised and even more surprised how gentle travelling over kerbs was, something I'd never done before. These are great bikes and a real pleasure to ride. I did as you say go so soft a few months back and found it aggravated things for me - so I went the other way and eventually maxed it out at 290 which oddly improved things. In trying to figure it out, the success of the Thudbuster on my previous SuperCharger hardtail got me thinking of the difference in the mechanics., i.e., there is also a slight back and forward movement in the 'bounce' or 'absorption' of the Thudbuster. The cost of being an adrenaline junkie in my younger years is here. Backs are funny things. I'll report back. btw, is that a HS Rohloff in your profile?
