Dropper post options (27.2mm)
Very pleased with my Hilo. It’s on a Soul with a 27.2mm seat tube.
Was a little concerned about the quality before buying but I stopped worrying when I received it. It has solid construction and good finishing. There is little side to side play.
I use the cable remote and it works adequately. I would say that the remote and the cable are probably the weakest part of the kit. The cable has a bit of friction to it, so the lever action isn’t that positive. It doesn’t affect the operation at all.
I have been using mine since the beginning of the year with no problems at all. It has stood up to some medium sized crashes in that time. I plan to service it after the winter (something you can do yourself). I have just realised that I have never topped up the air pressure because it has never needed it.
Overall a very good and reliable bit of kit. Considering I was able to pick one up for less than £130 at Wiggle I would have no hesitation in recommending it.Posted 4 years agoir_banditoSubscriber
Very happy with my Gravity Dropper descender, but wanted to more drop and a remote option, so trying out a Traildrop post at the moment. Equally impressed, although after 4 rides its stared to get a bit of rotational play, so I’ll strip it for a good look inside..
May yet sell the GD.
Oh, +1 for Gravity Dropper customer service. my knob fell off (ooh-err), sent it to GD who stuck it back on, with additional fasteners, for free. And this was a third hand post, with no proof of purchase 🙂Posted 4 years agofervouredimageMember
I’m looking to get a dropper post but unfortunately I need one that’s 27.2mm. I was looking at the X-Fusion model initially but a couple of people at the bike show mentioned that they had so far proven a little unreliable and one had been returned twice in 3 months due to manufacturing defects.
Anyone else used an X-fusion post who can offer some feedback. is there anyone else making a dropper post with a 27.2 option?Posted 4 years ago
