9point8's Lightweight Dropper Post and New Stem - Sea Otter 2019
THIS! I had 3 of these suckers between me and the wife. All 3 failed at the beginning of a weekend of riding in wet late fall conditions in VT. Muddy and around freezing temps did them in immediately. Rode all weekend with it locked out. Tried fixing them myself instead sending them in. That ended in disaster when the rubber band snapped and all the micro-bits from the keys went everywhere. I sent them in and they fixed all 3 for free and w/o a word, which was nice. But it took forever and was pricey shipping to Canada. Gave them another chance. Rode all winter. They work like poo in the winter but they all seem to, besides BikeYoke. The nail in the coffin was when a freshly rebuilt (from them) post rode like crap on a 9 day CO/UT trip. Apparently, they don't like dust either. Reverbs were working better. Freaking Reverbs! Went to Fox after that, which is has been good, but not great. And now BikeYoke which is where it's at!

Video: PNW Components Announces Bachelor Dropper Post
@stevemokan: Any experience with temps consistently below freezing? Every dropper I've owned but one has had issues with lower temps. Some worse than others.

You are looking at a 2017 RS Reverb Stealth Dropper 31.6 x 125mm w/Push remote. This was taken off a lightly used Tallboy and is just returning from being serviced. Asking $100. Buyer pays shipping.

Field Test: Santa Cruz Bronson
Cool review overall. Video had way more data than the write-up. I usually don't watch the vids but I did this time, due to lack of write-up. Thanks for not reviewing the components. We all know how shocks, drivetrain, brakes, bars, etc. work. No need to gush about stock parts, especially since we'll change out the ones we don't like anyway. Funny how SC forces the RockShox rear shock on the new Bronson and Nomad, not even an option to go Fox. I have the N4 and found the DHX2 was more tune-able and rode significantly better overall. I asked a SC rep about this last summer and he said the Fox shocks have too many tuning options. Sound like BS to me. I would be interested in hearing more about how it compares to an N3 and N4. I rode the N3 for 3+ years and it was the best bike I've owned. I feel the N4 is a big upgrade all around to the N3. Peddles slightly better but WAY better on the DH. I'm thinking the B3 is a more "centered" upgrade to the N3. Agree with the others on the 29'r crap. It's not for everyone. I'll be soooo pissed if I'm forced into a 29'r for my next bike. Agree with others on bikes are WAY too expensive now. WTF!!!
