Dropper post without remote - choices?
For all those that have just bought the HiLo. When installing the remote use a high quality Teflon coated cable and you will have a much smoother action.
Hmmm anyone managed to fit the HiLo remote without the little block that screws to the front of the post to retain the cable? (Where the lever goes). I seem to have misplaced mine when I fitted the lever, doh. I'll try a bit of BIY using the lever.
Was the Rock Lobster Steel too (SL is ali)? Would not have thought it would have been that much more comfy, as the Lobster 853 is a very comfy frame. Was the same seatpost and fork used? All the best, Andy.
27.2 XFusion HiLo update - it does the job fine. Having done a few rides using the under-saddle lever I installed the remote, rode with that last night, and won't go back to the lever.
The supplied remote, cable and sheath all work fine for me.
I probably don't use more than 30mm or 40mm of drop on my XC bike for local singletrack, so IMO 100mm is plenty of drop, I wouldn't pay more for more drop.
No creaks, it all works OK. The seat clamp is easy to use. The saddle moves a couple of mm side to side but I don't notice it riding, it's a non-issue.
I am a dropper convert, and even on my weight-weenie SS rigid bike, I think the dropper earns its keep easily. It transforms the ride, and also is a bit handy when climbing out of the saddle to put the saddle well out of the way.
Wiggle seem to have cottoned on and put the price up to £175.
