'Traildrop' uppy downy seat post……
Don’t have a Traildrop, but do have the Forca branded ‘variant’ (IIRC different cable setups).
Has done a sterling job so far (had it about 4 months now). Wasn’t overly impressed at first (was sticky and awkward to use) but a 15 minute service (strip down, clean, regrease, new cable and ghetto boot made from a tube – which you won’t need as the Traildrop comes with a gaiter I thnk?) saw it working really well. Hasn’t missed a beat since.
Mine doesn’t drop that far (85mm or so) but that’s been enough for the level of techy/downhill stuff I ride. It has a bit of lateral play if you grip it and twist but I honestly haven’t noticed that while riding.
Overall, pretty good bang for your buck I reckon. Once mine dies I might well replace it with something pricier but for now it’s doing a good job of holding my saddle in place and sliding up and down when I need it to.

Cheers colournoise, yes I have seen the Forca one too…from ebay? As far as I can tell they are pretty much the same thing. Your feedback is encouraging, yeah the traildrop comes with a boot and from what I can tell has gone through a few improvements since being available.
I think the traildrop has a 4 inch drop which is enough..even if I have to service it now and then it’s still a bargain. Having used a mates Reverb I didn’t know what something at this price would be like. The Reverb feels so smooth and the warranty is cracking too!Posted 6 years ago
Been looking at these for a bit, first became aware of them on here. If you have one how has it been over time?Posted 6 years ago
I just did the pre-order thing, taking a bit of a chance but can’t really stretch to a GD right now….and being limited to 27.2 this one seemed like a good bet. So how have you found it?retro83Member
according to this post here by weejase40 :
it can go round the ‘right’ way

Hi all, the latest TrailDrop (much larger batch this time) will be back in stock for ordering next week, and all those who pre-ordered will get theirs first.
There’s a couple of minor improvements in TrailDrop over the seatpost pictured above, and the (essential!) boot is included in the price.
Keep an eye on the website / sign up to notifications to hear more 😉
Would be great if those people who have a TrailDrop could post their experiences up here.
