I've always been keen to ride my bike with the seat up. It's from back before droppers where around and I made a point of learning to ride tech with the seat up, so I didn't need to stop and drop it.
Last night I rode my Superlight down a steep and rocky trail (one of the "downhill" trals in wharncliffe) with the seat down, and I'm now thinking a dropper is the way forward.
So, Rockshox or Thomson? I like that the Thomson is cable operated and not hydro, but a reverb is £200ish (with a bleed kit), and the Thomson is £280...
Anyone had both? is the Thomson worth the extra cash?
