- Just received my Brand-X Ascend Dropper Seatpost 170mm
I have just received a Brand-X Ascend 170mm Seatpost. On delivery the post is not fully extended to it’s maximum height. The label on the box says it is the 170mm version which is the one I want. However when in the packaging, and before installing, the post’s extension measures only 100mm. Is this normal? Has anyone noticed the same when their post has been delivered? Just want to make sure I’ve been sent the right thing.Posted 4 days agobro1968Member
Okay, so after initial dumb question the post is now fitted and happily goes up and down as it should reaching the full 170mm extension. This is my first non Reverb post and, although, as others have said the lever feels a bit underwhelming, first impressions are very good. The build quality on the post itself is great, with no left to right play in the saddle, it comes with a two year warranty and I only paid £99.00 for it at Start Fitness (with code EXTRA10 for 10% off). For a budget build it’s spot on.Posted 4 days agoPoopscoopSubscriber
They are bloody great droppers.
If you want to treat yourself you can fit the Bonty remote or the ZTTO remote available off eBay.
I have both, the Bonty fitted and the ZTTO in the spares box.
The ZTTO looks nicer (wolftooth copy from memory) but the Bonty is better made imo.
That said, the mk2 lever that comes with the dropper as standard is perfectly good too.👍Posted 2 days ago
