Eightpins NGS1 Integrated Dropper Post - Review
The tolerance is about the same as a standard searpost ream. The Eightpins post as to be designed into the frame, because it is larger in diameter than a conventional dropper, so your bike maker would have taken care of that step. FYI, Syntace makes an adapter to return the Eightpins to a standard-diameter clamp type post.

Eightpins NGS1 Integrated Dropper Post - Review
Yes, you can remove the post in two ways. The easiest is to unlock the seat height adjustment dial (in the saddle clamp head), depress the remote lever and simply pull the seatpost out of the frame. The end of the air spring and the locking mech' will stick out a little, but you can use Gorilla tap to keep inside the seat tube while travelling. The other way is to remove the through bolt at the bottom of the seat tube and then the whole assembly comes out the top of the seat tube. It's super easy to mess with. The cable hooks to the release mechanism half-way up the post, It's accessible and pops right on and off.

You can drop in an adapter with a clamp and use any dropper you want. The 33mm tube lets you enjoy 220 mm of drop without having your ass waiving around like it's perched on top of a flexible flag pole.

Scott Genius 920 - Review
@ak-77: Yes. I was comparing different tire combinations: Some that roll fast on hard pack or pavement are significantly slower by comparison on the dirt and vice versa. Soft, knobby tread with lots of siping really bogs down on pavement. Same with some of the high-volume, low-pressure combinations. Super sticky tires are usually pigs on the pavement but wake up with they hit the dirt. In the case of the original compound e13 tire, I was climbing a long, steady section with paved and unpaved hardpack intervals and was surprised to have my heart rate drop and speed pick up slightly on the unpaved parts.

I appear in enough reviews and I am uglier than Mr Preston. He makes the reviews look much better. More important, however, Harold Preston is a friend and PB test rider who I use to get a second opinion on almost all of my reviews. The comments are mine,

@duzzi: a number of tires and also wheel and tire combinations roll significantly faster over rough terrain than they do in paved surfaces. Same with tire pressures. larger volume tires at lower pressures, like the Scott's 2.6" rubber are a good example.

@seraph: Updated. Scott informed me of the fix after the review.
