27.2mm Dropper post...

Postby DanDax1990 » Tue Dec 18, 2012 17:49 pm

I know this is a long shot but... Does anyone have/Has anyone tried one of these?

I'm tempted to get one to see if I like the idea of a dropper post or not, And if it ain't for me I won't of lost much and if I like it I can invest in a tried and tested one.

I have one but yet to try it out. There was a UK seller for only a few more quid that might be worth checking out, got mine in a couple of days.

My friend has a forca which is what the TMARS is based on. He gets on well with it but he bought it 2nd hand and has some play in the post but he hasn't really looked into it. If you do some googling on the Forca you'll find a bit about them.

Sorry I can't give any better feedback but it looks like it will do the job! :)

I want the remote version of that Kind Shock, Gaz. Just want to try one out to see if I can justify buying it or not, To see if I'd actually use it. So may aswell buy a cheap one to start off with.

Been toying with the idea of a dropper for a while, wasn't aware of non-remote posts, think I'd prefer this type, less clutter on the bars and no cable to attach to the frame, is there a version with the lever to the front of the underside of the seat, just think it would be better there than having to reach around..

Guys can you help me please. Currently I have a Trance with a reverb which is awesome for me..I am upgrading to my sons cast-off orange which needs a 27.2 mm dropper. I'm really confused about what to replace the reverb with ...any advice would be great.

Merry christmas Eve..
