Pros Affordable, mechanical, self serviceableInfinite travel, smooth action, triggy remote, revive reset valveAffordable, very short stack and extended length, adjustable travel with shims, lightweightInnovative, easy compression, adjustable spring rate, six travel lengths, available partsLoam lever is excellent, reasonable price, smooth action
Cons Less refined feel, four position indexed travelLong extended length, expensiveRemote lever sold separatelyFinicky installation-cable tension, poor performance if set up improperlySlightly grainy feel
Bottom Line The mechanically sprung e*thirteen TRS Plus dropper seatpost is simple, affordable, and works well, but is less refined than the competitionThe small German component manufacturer Bike Yoke is making one of the best dropper seatposts on the market todayThe OneUp V2 takes home our Best Buy Award for its combination of low price and high performanceThe winner of our Top Pick for Innovative Design award, the Fall Line is an interesting and thoughtfully designed new dropper postPNW Components is a relatively new player in the industry and the Bachelor is a high-quality dropper post at a reasonable price
