I do Love short seat tubes, but it's a funny thing on a bike like the stumpy where the seat tube is interrupted so high up and effectively remains consistent through all sizes due to pivot placement/bent seat tube.  This makes the available insertion depth on those small sizes incredibly shallow. Always leaves you with a lot of exposed seat post above the clamp and really impedes droppers for shorter people/smaller sizes.  But I agree, most especially on a bike like this it is better to have the seat tube be shorter so the lower saddle height is at least available with a dedicated rigid post for someone that may use this primarily in the bike park.   But this thing just doesn't have the insertion depth for a 175-200mm dropper unless you have incredibly long legs, which is a shame given its intended use.
