Poll: Will Dropper Posts Become The Norm In World Cup XC?
I don't know how I used to get (mildly) rowdy without one. I now get nervous going down a curb without a dropper.

Poll: Will Dropper Posts Become The Norm In World Cup XC?
@clink83: We would all be humiliated trying to keep up with World Cup racers on any course. Or the road. Or a velodrome. Or running up stairs. This fact is separate from whether a course is proper mountain biking.

Poll: Will Dropper Posts Become The Norm In World Cup XC?
Current droppers are all essentially the same, just different lengths. It's possible we'll see simplified, extremely light, short stroke droppers for top level cross-country racing. At that point, the arguments against dropper posts essentially disappear. Even with current designs, the weight difference slows the rider only a couple of seconds per lap. It's easy to image that could be recovered on the descents. The real difference is whether a dropper will ever prevent a crash: if even one crash in a career is prevented, that time/points difference will never be recovered by climbing faster without a dropper.
