Dropper posts can make a huge difference to your riding, but there are a few things to take into consideration before buying one. Neil tells you how to make sure you only buy the dropper post that will fit both you and your bike. Make sure you buy the correct diameter post for your bike Check whether the post is routed internally or externally Decide how much drop you want from your post. An important measurement to take before buying your post is the stack height. That is the measurement from the top of the seat post collar to the saddle rails. Then subtract about 50mm for the dropper post collar and the saddle clamp. This measurement is the maximum length of dropper you can run. Check the length you can insert the seat post into your frame before it hits an obstruction. For example, a bend in the tube, or the actual rear shock itself. Ensure the dropper post won't be further out from the frame than the minimum insertion mark. Do you ride with a dropper post?
