I think that's a little strong considering I'm an outlier in terms of my leg length for my height, and for most riders this wouldn't be an issue. This is only a problem if the post is inserted to max depth. Otherwise it wouldn't even be noticeable. And the issue with the routing likely has a solution that most bike mechanics would be able to crack easily but I'm just sharpening my claws on internal routing - and I was on a tight timeline.  In most engineering situations compromises need to be made. It's possible the chosen solution would aid some riders but not others. I've encountered bikes that had issues that were dealbreakers for me but in the end the niggles on this bike wouldn't be enough to have me exclude it from consideration if I was looking for a new bike.  The We Are One Arrival 170 I just built up has no internal cable guides which meant for much tougher sledding than the SCOR in terms of the build and I needed to wrap the housing and brake line with zip ties to prevent them from banging against the inside of the frame. Without a magnet system the only way I could run the cables and lines was to do it before the fork was installed. And I just got some new brakes to test so I'm going to have to do it all over again. Is it a dealbreaker for me? It's not. Would I prefer it if everything was easier, or maybe even externally routed? That would be great but it's not enough to put me off the Arrival 170. It's not perfect but I've yet to find a frame that is. And the pricing of this bike is much less extravagant than much of the competition.
