Looking to buy my first gravel bike!
HELL NO! Way overpriced. Found an identical bike that sold for 800 bucks in August of last year at the Height of the bike shortage. You can get a brand new Cannondale Topstone 4 for that price (though I don’t know why you would want to because the Poseidon X is identical to the topstone, literally down to the group set and is only $750, and is available and shipping).
Help with sizing Poseidon X
It's 31.5in on the XL so I assumed it would be ~30 on the Large. I myself just received my poseidon X few weeks ago. I'm 6ft tall, followed the same logic and went with the XL which is a tad higher than a Topstone Medium and it fits like a glove.

I just bought myself a Poseidon X in Matte Black. Kind of worried about the sizing on it. I talked to support and they said X-Large or Large would both basically work for me. I went with the X-Large, even though my inseam is just barely below it.
Beginner; just ordered a poseidon x
Congrats on the new Poseidon X!. I just got mine last Saturday and went and had a bike fitting today. The bike is pretty decent out of the box. I will probably be looking to upgrade the saddle first.
Just ordered my Poseidon X!
I went for a 20 mile ride with one of my friends yesterday on my salsa and he was riding his Poseidon X. We traded halfway through so I could give his Poseidon a try and it was awesome. I’ll be buying one in the next few months for sure

2021 Poseidon X
This Poseidon X fit my needs and my budget! After riding it for the last 2 months I finally have it tuned to where I am very happy.
NBD and upgraded bike day - Poseidon Redwood
Great looking bike. I am in about the same boat as you, having gone with the inexpensive (and available!) option (Poseidon X) since I hadn't really ridden much since childhood and needed to figure out what I really wanted.
Poseidon Redwood owners, what were your first upgrades?
Late to the party, but I own a Poseidon X and swapped saddle, drivetrain, brakes, tires, and bar tape. Went to Sram Rival hydro setup and wow it is 1000x better. Stock mech brakes wouldnt even stop me, borderline unsafe. Saddle and bar tape was crap too.
NBD this thing gonna help me w/ my weight loss goals
I just received my Poseidon x and my front brake cable was routed the exact same way. Must have had the same installer.
