@onlyDH: just wish it came in longer sizes. My Large Darkside was like a S2 Enduro.

Ridden & Rated: 13 of the Best Dropper Posts
Mine sticks and takes a lot of force to push down. Also makes a squeaking sound when compressed. I service it once a week at least. The stack height is incredible though.

Ridden & Rated: 13 of the Best Dropper Posts
I've ridden 4 posts over the past few seasons: The Reverb 125mm, Crank Brothers Highline 150mm, the X-Fusion 170mm, and currently the Oneup V2 180mm. By far my favorite post has been the Highline. The only con I experienced with that post after 3 years of use and ZERO service was that it always has a slower extension speed than the others and didn't make any noise when fully extended (its nice to know its at the top). You get used to it, but it never once needed a service, never stuck, and was always reliable. Also its lever rotates 360 degrees so you can get it in a really great position. The One Up sticks a lot, even after greasing the collar and bushing once a week. it also makes a squeaking noise when I extend it, and takes more force to begin to push down that the other posts I've owned. The stack height is amazing though and I can get it way lower in my frame that the X-Fusion that came with the bike. The X-Fusion was otherwise a well performing post, but I couldn't get it low enough in my frame. The Reverb worked great, until it didn't like everyone else. If I were buying a new post tomorrow it would be the Highline, no question.

Ridden and rated? First, where is the rating? Second, were they really ridden, or just checked out at a bike shop. Check weight posted online (otherwise why would they weigh most without levers except a few?), push seat down, actuate lever, check price; review done.

Review: Nukeproof Mega 290c Factory
You lost me when you mentioned no bottle inside the front triangle. Such a small detail, but one which is incredibly important.

First Ride: RockShox's New Zeb Fork
I am just so "meh" on 38mm stantion forks. I don't need a heavier fork than the Lyrik, and I don't need a lighter flexier fork than the Boxxer.

MTB on a Budget: Where to Spend & Where to Save on Bike Parts
Buy a used complete bike that is 2 years old. Choose one with the most modern geo and best price to component ratio within your budget. Don't buy a frame and build it up with budget parts. You will spend more.
