Having not used a dropper post until today, I took my new bike out for the first time today on one of my normal XC routes, starting at QECP, out towards Harting Down and back into QE on the SDW. None of the route really requires me to use the dropper function except for the final descent back through the park.
So, just before the trail starts to go down, I pull the remote lever, sit on the saddle to lower it and am pleasantly surprised when I lift myself up and the saddle stays down! What I really did not expect was the bike to instantly change it's character into a wickedly fast, hooner of a machine . The final descent was a total blast! Found myself searching for all the lips and drops to launch off!
Do dropper posts do this to all bikes? Or have I really just gone and got myself a bike that performs perfectly for me on the ups, downs and everything in-between?
