    27.2 dropper posts are not common but if you have a bike frame with a skinny seat tube you can still take advantage of the benefits.

    A handy and well timed summary of options for my A La Carte hardtail, thanks STW!

    You’ve missed off the T Mars post. I’ve been using this dropper and it’s given me 3 years of great service to date.

    Gravity Dropper FTW.
    Got mine second hand 6 years ago (from here, natch) and it’s worked flawlessly ever since. So easy to work on, and parts are dirt cheap.

    Good article, something often overlooked. I struggled like hell to find a dropper that worked on my old 29er Genesis! Loved that bike but ultimately the main reason I got rid. Glad there are better options out there now

    Brand X Ascend II is internally routed. It comes with a cyclocross style lever, which mounts on the wide part of the bar by the stem, for use on drop handlebars. Otherwise it seems to be a good product so far. I’ve used mine in the mud of Hit The North this year, and it survived that.

    I do want to get a lever that fits next to the shifter though.

    +1 for gravity dropper. Engineering simplicity and built to last.

    I too am using a 5 year old ( to me) 2nd hand gravity dropper.
    It’s sooo simple, works a treat..
    Since I’ve bent it slighly it’s been stuck in the seat tube for 3 years. If it needs attention I’ll have to cut it out
