Oneup Dropper Post Early Impressions Review

My old Rock Shox reverb dropper post died and I wanted to try another. I ride a small frame  https://www.pivotcycles.com/ mach6 and it has a very short seat tube so the insertion part of the seat post needs to be short as possible. I tried a crank brothers post but it sat too high in the frame but heard the 150mm https://www.oneupcomponents.com/products/dropper-post inserted into the frame more, giving me better descent height as well as pedalling height.

Delivery was quick and I took the post to http://contourcycles.co.uk/ for fitting. I was excited about trying it, so off to my skills area I went to see how it rode. The post has no “waggle” and the lever feels solid and gives a positive action and ease of operation. Whilst in the bike shop I got them to tidy up the cables on my bike with shrink fit tubing, along with the https://www.themudhugger.co.uk/  front guard  it looks the nuts!

 

I like my seat as low as possible when jumping or descending so I can easily move the bike around in the air without fear of hooking up on my http://www.dakine.com/clothing.

 We have spent a lot of time armouring the trails for the winter and beyond this year and they are riding so well. I decided to film a little riding edit of the seat post in action too

I put together a little edit of a ride I did with my mate Tom filming it on his iphone. Not bad for an hours riding.

 

 

I have loved riding this bike for the past 18 months. I want to try 29″ next!
