Prize Details:

Few products have changed mountain biking like the dropper post. The simple act of raising and lowering your saddle on demand makes riding more fun and has allowed for the rapid progression of modern trail and enduro bikes; however, reliability problems have plagued dropper posts since their inception. Many require elaborate or even factory service for simple problems adding to time off the bike. Simplicity, reliability and durability are the three pillars of the TRS+ seatpost design.


- Full Mechanical Design. Remember how much you enjoy bleeding your brakes? You don’t need that kind of aggravation from your seatpost. A heat-treated, cable actuated cam reliably and consistently locks the post into one of four positions.
- Coil Sprung for Reliability. Less maintenance than air sprung posts with a smooth, consistent return speed every time, for the life of the post.
- Shop Serviceable. Total disassembly is possible using common bike tools. No nitrogen charges, no suspension fluid.
- Set it and forget it. Always know your saddle height with 4 fixed modes.
- Shifter Style Lever. All the work we put into the post would be lost if it wasn’t activated by a fantastic lever. Sealed against the elements and pivoting on cartridge bearings, our shifter style lever offers loads of adjustment and is matchmaker compatible for excellent ergonomics. The cable is clamped at the lever, allowing for easy set-up and adjustment as well as simplified removal of the post for travel or repair.

What's in the box: Post, lever, cable and housing

 Just a heads up that Pinkbike select the winner at the end of each day and contact them via the email associated with their account and in order to win you need to reply within 5 days otherwise the prize will be redrawn. So if like me you were using your junk email rather than your normal one it might be worth checking it regularly over the next month!

 Thanks. Just checked and I haven't won any nice bike goodies yet, but a nice Prince wants to send me several million dollars so I won't be needing any lowly GX parts anyway!

 I've got one because it's relatively easily swappable for a traditional seatpost for bikepark days. Does the job. Have not serviced it yet though, so no idea about the quality of internals.

 I have one and really like it. Have a 9point8 also and that expensive thing slips in the cold, POS! Very dissatisfied with 9point8. I ride with 3 guys that have 10 year old Gravity Droppers that never fail, works in the cold, rain snow or shine. They tease me about my high maintenance "super model" post that always need attention and has to be reminded how beautiful she is while theirs are low maintenance, reliable and loyal and don't give a shit how she looks. She performs well and always satisfies...wait am I still talking about seat posts?! Basically the E*Thirteen dropper is like the GD. Super simple design, easy to work on and parts are cheap and readily available. Also, E*Thirteen has awesome customer service.

 @ride4austin: Do a brake reset (depress the lever fully for a few seconds) as the temperature drops. The shrinks slightly in the cold, causing the cable to go tight, and partially disengaging the brake. A reset brings it back to full hold in the cold. If this doesn't do it, contact customer service and they can help you out.

 @ride4austin: I would warranty the 9point8. I had one with the same issues, but eventually it was even acting up in warm temps. Turns out there was a bad seal and the brake mechanism was highly contaminated with oil. I'm a mechanic in a lbs, so they sent me a new brake with updated seals. After cleaning the inside of the stanchion with brake cleaner, and installing the new brake, my Fall Line has been flawless.

 I got one. Initially the post would not return to full travel, but I contacted E thirteen and they sent me a stronger spring free of charge no questions asked. It now works great aside from some play in the head since I didn't torque a bolt enough when installing the new spring.
