Lowdown: Crankbrothers Highline Dropper Post
No matter what is written here about Crankbrothers Highline dropper post, the lingering issue of trust (or lack thereof) will scare some people away. The California-based component maker has an occasionally checkered past in the reliability department, especially when it comes to getting saddles out of the way on descents. Its Kronolog post is arguably one of the bigger failures in recent cycling component history. But our job is to look at the here and now, not the past, so we came into this test with an open mind, and (as mush as possible) without bias. So how well did the Highline work right out of the box? And did it stand up to the test of time? Read on to find out.
