    Hi guys,saw a crank brother joplin on a friend's reign xo and l was quite impressed of the fact that you can easily drop your saddle on the fly and put it up again at a flick of the switch.Are there any seatpost with a 27.2 size? thanks

    I have a gravity dropper turbo on my ID it is only available with 4 inch drop in 27.2
    I have a RASE Black Mamba on my Moment. It has 9 inches of drop and rattles like mad but works ok.

    There are other 27.2 options from KS.

    It depends if you want layback or inline. Layback options are limited.

    X-fusion just came out with a 27.2 post as well. Anything none gravity dropper or all mountain post is pretty new, so we shall see how they hold up.

    I have had a gravity dropper on my Epi for 2 years. Works great and no issues.

    This was the best additional I have made for this bike. Downhilling even more fun now!

    Drop posts are about $300.

    I purchased my direct from Gravity Dropper. Their posts range in price depending on options. I highly recommend the remote lever so you can drop your post on the fly while keeping both hands on the bar.

    I purchased an X-fusion Hilo 27.2 with remote Saturday from Modern Bike (www [dot] modernbike [dot] com) for $187 with free shipping. The post is ~.25lbs/150g heavier than the Gravity Dropper, but it's fluid vs. mechanical so it's got better adjustment control.

    Thanks- That's what I wondering. Were are the good deals on any 27.2 drop post?

    I had a KS for my Mojo and loved it, but the 27.2 version is both funky and expensive.
