Pretty sure that if the Titan was carbon, insertion depth wouldn’t be an issue. And, I’ve got plenty of space above the seat post collar for a 210 post.  My view is probably skewed from being on the taller side, but it seems to me the focus on the distance from seat post collar to saddle rails (which is what shimming addresses) results from the fact that it seems easier to create lots of seat post insertion depth with carbon. Never had an issue running a longish (but sensible for the application) and well-designed dropper on a carbon bike.   Hopefully we’ll get more and more good aluminum frame options, and that will incentive more focus on the length of the dropper below the seat post collar.
