- Will there ever be a decent 27.2 dropper post?
Basically it will only take one rider to win a WC race with one to see them being the new fashion.
Whilst I agree with you on principal the way XC racing works just doesn’t lend itself to a downhill bias, none of the top riders are losing much time on the descents anyway, so don’t stand to gain much.
I think it’ll be more likely we’ll see them in the lower levels of racing first. I saw people using them at the Brass Monkeys enduros in January and December, and there was nothing technical in either. If there was less of a weight penalty and they did one to fit my bike I’d be interested to try one, and it’s naive to think they’ll not improve in the former in the coming years.Posted 6 years ago
