    M9 Dropper Seatpost and 1 X 10 12-36

    Before anyone tells me that the M9 is not designed to ride flat trails or climb - has anyone done this? In Middle-TN we have some fun stuff to ride, but not much elevation. So, if you want a big bike for jumps/drops and pedal around as well - can this be done?

    Is there enough room in the seat tube for a dropper? Is there anything hindering a 10 speed de-railer and cassette?

    Dude, you stole my "user title".

    Here's a M9 with a dropper pix. Not sure who owns it tho.
    I ride a 951 with a dropper, 10 speeds (11-36), and a HammerSchmidt for climbing.

    Sweet! Thanks for the reply. As far as stealing ...mine is two words. I used to make this joke - ironically because I work in telephony. So "Lord of the Rings" makes sense on two levels. But people but never got it - they started calling me "Precious."

    I work in satellite telephony.

    Alltho, I'd probably put a dropper post on one, the M9 is a pure "point and shoot" downhill machine.
