    Likely the Fox DOSS post or the Thomson Elite Dropper will be the best, but the Rock Shox Reverb will be the most popular in use. You could use the Reverb Stealth with bottom hose entry since the bottom of the SXC seat tube is open.

    Just a reminder that the dropper posts don't have any significant saddle mount setback, if you are using a fixed seatpost with much setback now, you will be challenged to find a dropper post that will allow you to put your saddle in the usual front/back location.

    The challenge with the SXC is the seat tube angle, it changes the HTT length substantially as you lower the saddle height.

    70mm is about right for descending, but something like a 90mm would make it a bit easier for climbing. Maybe 80mm would balance the AM riding with equal up and down.

    In 2009 the SXC 70 was equipped with Easton Havoc 31.8 x 10 stem in lengths of 50-65-80mm. The SXC 50 was shipped with Race Face Evolve AM 31.8 x 8 stem in lengths of 50-70-90mm, and the SXC 30 was shipped with RMB flip-flop alloy 31.8mm x 6 stem in lengths of 70-80-90mm.

    So the original equipment was generally based on bike size.
