Orbea Digit Dropper Post: First Look
@bkm303 I used to think it could work with a lever that pulled back a pin that locked into shaft holes. Or an inner tube that has an expanding collar putting pressure on the outer tube and the handle would compress the collar, letting the inner tube move up and down freely. The expanding collar idea would be more complex but it would have infinite adjustment (if anybody even uses that).

Orbea Digit Dropper Post: First Look
@jaame I have one of the most minimalist cockpits I've seen (brakes + matchmaker reverb remote and 1x10 X0 gripshift) so the cables don't really bother me all that much. I just feel that the remote, the hydraulic system, nitrogen cartridges, seals and questionable tuning options are really over complicating a concept that is simple in itself (a seatpost that goes up and down without having to stop the bike). Does it really need to weight over a pound and cost 400$? That being said, with the type of trails I ride, I'm really thankful that I have mine.

I have a hard time understanding how they can ride such a steep grades so slow and not have their rear tire all over the place... Massive props for the bike control.

What I'd like is a similar bare bones concept with a head mounted lever (like the thomson elite seatpost option). No oil, no remote, no return speed adjustability, no infinite adjustability. Hell, it doesn't even need a spring, just a super light, guided seatpost with a handle under the seat's nose to release the clamp pressure so you can easily pull it up or down. I bet it probably already exists somewhere.

Different people with different personalities. He's not the PR guy, he's the racer and that's what he focuses on. I have no problem with that.

Not many manufacturers of just about anything can guarantee that 100% of their goods produced are faultless. Maybe the mechanic messed up, or maybe it was a brand new but bad chain link/pin, we'll probably never know.

Yeah, english isn't even my main language and when I saw that I was like "somebody is using big words they don't know what they mean".

Ask PB: Zero-Extension Stems and Air vs. Coil Suspension
I think it's ridiculous to generalize so much over coil/air. Maybe if you run a coil marzo fork its going to feel great forever with 0 maintenance but my rockshox coil forks only feel fresh for like... one run and the seals inevitably start barfing oil after barely a few days riding. Meanwhile, my F36 fork has a pretty consistent feeling and can be ridden quite a while before it shows signs its ready for maintenance. I'm not sure I could say the same about the 32s though.
