KS Dropzone... forgot which variant. Sub-200$. Hydraulic, 125mm travel (infinite positions), cable-actuated remote. I just grease it up around the seal from time to time, no issues so far (bought Oct. 2016).

Plenty of other cheapo options around as well.

I'm using a KS Eten I think it's called. Was $175 cad shipped. I'm pretty happy with it.

What dropper post are people running on their Pitch?
I like the look of the internal cables/hoses, and have thought of drilling a small hole in the base of the seat tube, but external would work great too.
Also, shopping on a budget. Under $200 if possible.

Not sure how this converts to $ but this http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/brand-x-ascend-ii-dropper-seatpost/rp-prod159176 is getting rave reviews. The cable sits on the front of the post as well so it doesn't look messy

I'm going to get one once it drops in price again (it was £89.99)

Running a standard specialized reverb dropper post, 30.9mm and 125mm travel.

I picked up a band X external from chain reaction a few weeks ago. I have not installed it yet due to all the snow but it looks very well built and the price was excellent.

What's the maximum size dropper you can get on a pitch? Notice some of the newer ones are 150/170. Are these too big for a medium pitch?

All depends on how much post you have sticking out... if you only have 150mm of post exposed, you are probably limited to 125mm of drop to account for the collar.

Hey Team,
I have another rear shock question. I'm trying to figure out what the Frame Mount Width is on a 2010 Pitch? I can't find my micrometer to measure it myself, but I figured someone out there had to know.

I'm putting a Fox Float CTD Factory in on it and I'm trying to figure out the size of my mounting hardware I need.
I found this (https://www.probikesupply.com/products/fox-rear-shock-5-piece-8mm-mounting-reducer-hardware-kits) to help me figure out the sizing.

FYIW, the shock I bought is coming with the 21.84

Thanks team.

I am fairly certain that is the correct. It may be 22mm

Looks great! I still am looking for a 36 for mine, but the Marz 55 I put on last summer is a nice upgrade.Only thing outstanding is getting my front brake situation resolved. Someone sold me brakes stating they were in great condition, but the front caliper was seized.
