  1. Hi guys, I just bought a ks lev ci dropper from a hubber. No complaints at all except the twisting play. Is this normal? There feels like quite a lot... Please can you give me any info or any advice on how I can fix it. Regards Kai
  2. By now most of you will know about and probably have ridden the established options Gravity DropperMaverick Speedball (Joplin's predecessor)Crank Brothers JoplinKS *various*RockShox ReverbNew to the market X-FusionRS StealthKS LevGiantSpecializedComing Soon Fox D.O.S.S.What's even better is more and more well-known companies with good reps are getting on board.

Surely prices will come down and tech & availability will go up.
  3. I am looking at getting a OneUp Dropper Post (the new V2 model) for my bike, and need some advice on which lever to get. I have a Shimano brake with I-SPEC EV clamp, so I would like a compatible lever to fit that. Obviously OneUp has their own lever, but I see a lot of talk about the Wolftooth lever as well. Does anyone have an preference over which lever to go for or any other alternatives that work great?
  4. I don't normaly create topics, and have a primary post focus for technical input. And stay away from the yif yaf discussions. However I feel compelled to give a huge shutout / Rave / plug whatever it is refereed as, to Lyne Components. I am by no means affiliated to them in any way but just appreciate their commitment, excellent service and products. I currently use their dropper posts, AMP wheel-sets, bars and stems, and in my opinion the products exceed performance, style and bang for buck in today's trends and market. Their service by far exceeds expectations from sales to returns and more... Yes, I have returned a dropper before for some issues. Not so much a return as a no questions asked overnight door to door swap for a new unit.... Dayle even went to extra lengths, sourcing not for sale spare pits for a personal faux pas on a dropper post. Leading the way in service delivery....Thank you! So big up's to them!
  5. Hi ladies and gents, My giant dropper post cartridge is seized at the actuator button on the top, so the unit does not lock in the upper position or allow it to be dropped. Does anyone know where I can buy a replacement cartridge? I have the older version with 100mm travel. mine is similar to this http://fcdn.mtbr.com/attachments/giant/936659d1415138489-giant-contact-switch-seatpost-switchrscheme1.jpg
  6. Hi all I am thinking of putting a dropper seatpost on my 29er Alu hardtail. So I have been eyeing the Lynne 31.6mm 120mm dropper, and the Giant 125mm dropper for which I'll need a 30.9mm-31.6mm shim which seems hard to find. They are similarly priced at around 2.2k. There is also the Forca SPS-400 on special for around 2k but it seems to have a rougher spring mechanism. Does anyone know if this is a good idea? and if so which of these is a better move?
  7. It's hard to imagine that not too long ago dropper posts where an oddity found only on custom builds and made by only a handful of manufacturers. Even though the benefits were clear, the early samples were unreliable, short on drop and needed lots and lots of care. Click here to view the article
  8. So not having found anything like this elsewhere on BH and not wanting to clog up the Dropper Post Things Are Hotting Up thread, I thought that getting this going would be quite handy for people considering a new buy. Tried doing this via a poll, but don't think it will work very well at all and didn't want to do a Survey Monkey off HB, so hope this works. My next post will be a set of questions, quote it and populate the questions with answers. Try keep it short and sweet and to the point. My hope is that this brings the not so well known brands that work very well to light and also any problems and ones to avoid.
  9. http://www.pinkbike.com/news/first-look-lindarets-remount-remote-dropper-adapter.html I find this rather exciting and very simple First Look: Lindarets ReMount Remote Dropper AdapterMay 19, 2015by Richard Cunningham Follow Add to Favorites http://ep1.pinkbike.org/p5pb12247544/p5pb12247544.jpg Lindarets is a small US manufacturer that offers solutions to common technical problems that mountain bikers face, like Wolf Tooth booster cassette cogs, the Goat Link derailleur extender for Shimano Shadow mechs' and now, ReMount - a clever clamp-on stub that converts most dropper-post remote levers to emulate the action of a trigger shift lever, just like the Specialized SRL lever and the Fox DOSS remote. The "ReMount" does just that, it is a molded-delrin stub, the same diameter as the handlebar, that changes the direction of the lever's actuation by 90 degrees, and more importantly, ReMount allows the dropper remote to be positioned within easy reach of the thumb while being clamped inboard of the brake lever. ReMount users get the freedom to position both the brake lever and the dropper remote exactly where they want them to be. It is one of those, "Why didn't I think of that?" products that should make a lot of riders happy. Remount is made and sourced in the USA, and will operate with most cable-actuated dropper posts. It is designed to operate with a one-by drivetrain, but Lindarets tells us that friends with left-side shift levers have been adapting the ReMount stub with good results. http://ep1.pinkbike.org/p5pb12247540/p5pb12247540.jpghttp://es.pinkbike.org/245/sprt/i/pb-small.png ReMount is molded from tough delrin plastic to the same diameter as a handlebar. The hardware is stainless steel and brass. ReMount's post extension offers 30 millimeters of adjustment and its molded plastic construction is intended to both save weight and to prevent damage to carbon handlebars in the event of a crash. MSRP is $19 USD and the claimed weight is only 20 grams. Lindarets sells them direct from their web store.

  10. Guys please help me out with some advice. I am planning on getting myself a dropper post and the uncertainty I have is around the length. I've narrowed my selection down to 2 options as long as they work for me: 1) Travel 100mm / length 365mm (remote) 2) Travel 125mm / length 385mm or 420mm (lever) The length of my current post is 400mm and I ride with it at max height. So ideally I do not want to lose any of that height (for climbing, XC etc.) but I want the new dropper to drop low enough to be out of the way on the more DH type stuff. Anyone want to jump in and offer some advice? I really need it. Thanks guys..
  11. I am taking the plunge and buying a rockshox reverb stealth for my Spez Camber. I know I must get the 380mm, as that is the same length as my current seat post (medium frame camber). My dilemma lies in the following: Do I get the 100mm or 125mm drop???? I am short, only 1.68m, and afraid the 125mm wont allow me to fully extend the seat post to suit my current seat height. Also, assuming it is 30.9mm for the Spez Camber? All feedback appreciated.
