    Crank Bros Highline or X fusion Manic Dropper

    so my kindshock dropzone 125mm has started to develop quite the side to side wiggle and i think its time to upgrade. the two big contenders are:

    Crank Brothers Highline 125mm

    X-Fusion Manic 125mm

    any suggestions at all? not really trying to break the bank but still ant something with at least 125mm travel and not trying to spend more then $250

    thanks guys!

    I have the Manic dropper and can say it's worked as well as any other I've used. I've used a Fox Transfer and a KS Lev out in Sedona and in regards to performance they work equally well.

    Long term, who knows? It's working great now and I'm happy with it.

    Bikeyoke Revive. If your seat tube is mostly straight, you can opt for a 160. Overall length is just a tad longer than most 125mm droppers. Or you can just get the 125. Out of your budget, I know. But if thereís a 20% code on Jenson or Competitive Cyclist, you can score one for a little over 300. Best dropper post in the market. By a long shot.
    I no longer like to party. But I like the idea of it.

    No the Bike Yoke Revive.

    https://www.bikeyoke.de/en/seatpost-...-160-30-9.html

    Comes in ALL standard seatpost diameters. I bought mine through a retailer with a 20% code at the time.
