One of those bikes in your garage probably has the option to lower the saddle a little on descents. Now that you've had that experience, you've noticed that something is missing from your cyclocross or gravel rides. You want a dropper on that thing!!! Well, here it is, the PNW Rainier Drop Bar Dropper Post. It has a custom lever for 31.8mm drop bars and is one of the first purpose built designs available in the market. Built from the ultra light, incredibly strong 7075-T73 alloy, the Rainier dropper post offers 80mm travel.
7075-T73 Alloy is light and durable.
Infinite Adjust because having to choose just one position is lame.
Single Bolt, slide adjust head for easy no nonsense saddle install and adjustments
I have about one year of time on this dropper post. I chose it for a steel framed mountain bike that requires a 27.2 sized seat post. At the time, only Thompson made one in that size, and it was hard to justify their price.
I like the simplicity, aesthetics, and cable actuation of this post. The only problems that I have with it are getting it to consistently return to the top position, and some saddle wiggle which has been hard to isolate,
PNW's 'Pine' version of this post looks like it addresses my issues with the Rainier - improved seat clamp, and a non-moving cable connection. The travel has also been increased with the Pine model. (And the 27.2 Thompson has been out of stock for a while, so that's not a current option.)
