Mountain Bike Dropper Post Install | GMBN Tech Essentials Ep. 10

Published on March 9th 2019


Dropper posts are the order of the day in this episode of MTB tech essentials. Dropper Posts enhance your mountain bike ride by moving the saddle out of the way with little to no interruption at the start of a descent, lowering your centre of gravity and allowing you to ride in a more dynamic manner without any risk of getting caught up on your seat. Subscribe: The GMBN Shop: Doddy covers cable vs hydraulic posts, cable orientation, how much drop you should aim for, the necessary tools for installation, and how to negotiate internal routing in this video.
