Pinkbike Poll: How Far Away Are Your Closest DH Trails?
Five minutes to my local canyon, an hour to Northstar, and a wife who downhills too....shuttle , push, uplift, repeat. I only own a DH bike.

Thomson Elite Dropper, 27.2mm

$380 USD
This is a basically new Thomson dropper in 27.2. Perfect shape and not a mark on it. It works fantastic and is every bit the awesome post that it claims to be. This is my second try at getting on with a dropper post and I just don't think they fit my riding style. I tried a Gravity Dropper before this and sold it, but figured I'd give the best a shot too since I hated the clunky/loose mechanics of the GD. This post is amazing for sure and blows the Gravity Dropper away as far as use and performance....but droppers still just aren't for me. Taken on ONE ride. My loss, your gain... $380 obo 125mm drop, 430mm overall length, 27.2mm Feel free to shim this post to fit any larger seat tube...so yes, it will fit your bike...including that steel hardtail. I torqued everything to spec with a recently calibrated wrench so no worries if anything got over tightened. The cable housing has been trimmed a little but is still pretty long. I also added a trick 90 degree noodle at the lever to eliminate the big loop of cable Thomson tries to get you to run. Comes in original box, with all original packaging and parts. I'm also tossing in a brand new inner cable and end crimp since those are aren't really reusable once you take it apart for shipping. Cheers

Video: Valentina Hoell - The Next Downhill Superstar
She had a pretty good bonk to the head a couple of years back. Pretty sure that put her off gravity racing permanently.

We do, but sadly they often end up quitting the sport for some reason once they hit high school. Hormones, peer pressure, whatever it is... I know two young rippers personally who hung up the bike right as they were about to really make waves.

Altamont Capital Buys Fox Head - Pete Fox Rejoins the Firm
I gave up on Fox when I saw hoodies in a Hot Topic in the mall a few years back...don't ask what I was doing in a Hot Topic.

You match your bike to the style of riding you do and what makes you comfortable, not necessarily the type of terrain or your abilities. I for one am glad the whole world isn't on enduro rigs.
