This is a beefy dropper seatpost that would probably take a lot of punishment and might be good for downhillers, especially a burly guy with big strong hands. However, I'm a small person with small hands and the awkward, stiff lever was way too hard to reach and operate.

Between the difficult lever and the fiddly operation it was not for me. I got a Kindshock Lev which is a breeze to operate and couldn't be happier with it.

Can I just buy the lever/cal ... Read More »

I've seen a 15.5" frame and was wondering whether this might be okay or whether there is an intermediate size between 15.5" and the Medium.
Thanks, TimRead More »
