I know this topic has been covered 100 times before, believe me I have read all the threads and reviews over the last week. Basically I am tired of going over the bars on steep technical DH because my seat it too high, or having to stop and adjust my seat. I have pretty much rules out the Gravity Dropper because it is just plain but ugly. I was all set to order the Crank Bros. Joplin seat post with remote as it looks very good, is pretty beefy and will fit my frame (31.6) without a shim. During all of my reading this week I came across the AMP seat post. While IMO it doesn’t not look as good as the Joplin, it looks much better than the GD and I could live with it. I like that the AMP comes in 4” & 5” models unlike the Joplin 3”. But I don’t think I have ever dropped my seat more than 3” on the trail anyway. The big thing that is starting to sway me towards the AMP is that it is a mechanical design unlike the hydraulic design of the Joplin. There just seems like there is less to go wring with the AMP. But on the other hand if something did go wrong with the Joplin I have no doubt that Crank Bros. would take care of me. Until the week I have never heard of the company that makes the AMP, and I cannot even remember their name of the top of my head.
