  • Dropper posts – again
  • Looks like I’m going to be riding a bit more this year and I want to replace the horrendous Command Post on my Spseh Kenevo

    What’s good out there up to around £250, preferably 34.6 (but could shim) and min 150mm drop (maybe more – need to get the tape measure out. Cable operated – preferably to work with the original thumby as it integrates into the SRAM brake clamp. Needs to be infinite positions, rather than incremental.

    Fox Transfer the best of the bunch, or….?

    One up posts get some good reviews and will do a 34.9 150mm drop too. Also seem to have a SRAM compatible switch/remote

    I’ve got a bird branded dropper on my bird..
    I think they are rebranded Brand X posts. I’ve only just serviced it the other day after 2 years.
    dead easy to do (I had reverbs on the other bikes) just way better all round than a reverbs I had on other bikes
    If you can get a brand x one in the size you need I’d recommend

    I buy OneUp posts because I need the lowest stack I can get (for my stumpy legs), but I’d probably get Brand X if I didn’t.

    Oneup are very good. Bikeyoke are better but they’re so much more expensive that it makes no sense. Brand X are so good for the price that they’re always worth a look.

    TBH these days most quality dropper posts are pretty competent and reliable so most of the time the best dropper, is the absolute longest you can fit, at the best price. IMO the difference between 150 and 170 is pretty massive in use, it seems like “just 20mM” but 170 was the first time I didn’t feel like I was making a big compromise for the drop.
