- Dropper post suggestions for orange 5
What year Five? Pre 2011 and choice is limited.
I had a gravity dropper turbo on my 2010 (27.2) which I really liked. It’s a mechanical post and suits the look of the Five! I found it very reliable, parts readily available and something you can look after yourself.
Now using a Reverb on a different bike. It’s a slick bit of kit, not had a problem with it yet but I can see myself sending it off to be serviced. Friends have been using them for well over a year. never serviced but are getting slow to return.
You are a good bunch of mates! I’m sure he will appreciate it.Posted 4 years ago
I don’t think the 2011/12 Five takes a stealth. If I remember they added cable guides on the top tube. A stealth requires internal routing ie a hole close to the BB and cable routing up the down tube.
There was a thread on here recently, a PSA for cheap Reverbs from Germany. About £160 Left hand remote. I bought one and mounted it upside down on the right. Only had it a couple of weeks but it’s spot on.
Edit. I’m not sure they were selling 30.9 posts. I will try and find the link….Posted 4 years ago
Hi there, it’s my mates 40th birthday coming up and a few of us are going to club together to get him a dropper post – it surely can’t get any more exciting than that? He’s got an orange 5 and I just wondered what droppers are compatible as I’ve lost track with what is out there? I’m using a KS Lev on my heckler, but wondered what other options there are that would fit his bike and, like the lev, avoid the need for any dangling cables?
