- Replacement Dropper Post (Trek Fuel 18.5)
Fed up with my Bontrager Drop Line and its continued faliures!
I managed to squeeze the 150mm Bontrager dropper in to my frame, but it does rest againt the bend in the frame on my Trek with its stupid curves!!!
Looking at the Fox Transfer as an option and think it has a pretty similar insert length, but the bottom where the cable goes in looks longer and a bit wider so I dont think the 150mm will fit so might have to go 125mm.
The Reverb is another option. The insert length is the same looking at a chart I found online and because the cable is central and quite narrow this might make it further in the frame.
I’m not sure its wise to have it resting on the bend in the frame but guess it doesnt do any harm?
Anyone with an 18.5 Trek Squeezed the above in?Posted 1 year ago
The OneUp dropper has a very short stack and a reasonable insertion length. The upshot being I can get a 150mm drop on my T130 where the original Reverb could only drop 125mm.
Also with the shim avavilable you can tweak the travel to to custom fit your bike and max saddle height – such a great idea!
There a whole thread on them, with quite a few now on STWer’s bikesPosted 1 year ago
Cheers for that! £185 with the Sram remote from UBYK seems decent price?
So if the 150mm is too short I can shim it down as far as 100mm?
Remote looks pretty nice – cheaper than a Wolf Tooth too.
Pre-order at UBYK though, will order one at that price and keep the Bontrager wobbling away until it arrives!Posted 1 year ago
One up arrived. Didn’t need the shim as was pretty much a perfect fit!
hardly any side play compared to the Bontrager. Very solid up and down clunks. Just got to be more sensitive with how tight the seat post clamp is.
Remote is nice, sram match maker position is much better than the wolf tooth. Bravo all round!Posted 1 year ago
