Dropper post .

Any recomendations .

Doesn't have to be remote, or should I be looking at one .

Any to stay clear of, or perhaps they are all too heavy and not worth their £200+

30.9mm if that is important.

Thanks
Tgr

Remote is worth it as is the added weight, get a KS i950 or a 2012 Reverb with full bleed kit (or a 2011 and accept it will need to go back for warranty work once then will be fine)

My 2011 has just gone back. Support seems excellent so no bother.

Don't know what actually went wrong but it appears to have spaffed loads of fluid out the top?

Think its one of the internal seals, they fit a different ones and fine from that point on. Seeing as how 104% of all 2011 ones die like this, it makes me wonder how much testing they did or perhaps it was just a faulty batch who knows, they fix them with minimal fuss which is the main thing

Best upgrade ever, been running one for about 3 years now.

The new Crank brother post is worth a look at.

Fingers crossed for mine then! Smile

As Buzz says too, awesome upgrade. I don't feel like I need one on my local trails in Kent much but places like surey hills etc it was worth its weight in gold.

Dont need it but the difference is tons. I had my fixed post in my xc bike for my last ride out and it was shocking how much slower I was down singletrack which wasnt even that steep just because I couldnt lower the post an inch or so. It felt lethal, couldnt move the bike round etc

I've not had to pop the saddle up to riding height in over two months and have therefore taken mine off. Also, I can get my saddle even lower without it.
