    any gravity dropper titus fans out there?

    #1 favorite trail quote about my gravity dropper

    "don't you think a suspension seat post on a full suspension bike is overkill"

    well it my look like a suspension seat post, but it is the single coolest thing I've even put
    on my motolite. I went with the multi drop 1" and 3" drop.

    so how many other titus boys and girls have been hit by the gravity dropper bug?

    I have a -1"/ -4" on my motolite.

    Possibly the coolest product since suspension forks?

    Best engineering I've seen since king hubs?

    Best customer service I've gotten from any company?

    yeah, it's good!

    Oh well! I was just ready to reply this thread but FM said it all already. My is -1" -3" (was installed on a SB) and it'll be on the ML.

    I wish I had one... does that count?

    I'd love to drop my saddle some 2-3" sometimes and not having to lose a beat.

    Yup, I have a -1" -3" on the Switchblade. I like it. I'm not sure I needed the remote control cable. Anyone prefer the manual control on the seat post version?
    There are 10 kinds of people in the world: those who count in binary, and those who don't.

    I got the regular -3" GD. Best $250 spent on the bike by far!

    Whoa! I don't even drop my seat, but after reading this, I think I want one too.

    Any thoughts on the Maverick version?

    Yes: it only comes in 30.8 so it won't fit on an ML. It does not come with an handlebar lever, and I really don't feel like reaching below my saddle when it gets sketchy on the trail. Looks pretty cool though.

    Love'm

    I got two of them when they first came out. Love them!!! Got one on the Switchblade and one on the Motolite. Fantastic customer service, kudos to Wayne! Works great, clean it once or twice a season and it's ready to rock. Will not own a bike without one.

    The only problem that I've faced since bought the GD, is that I don't feel comfortable when riding a bike without it (at least when going downhill). Otherwise, it's perfect!

    Seriously, one of the best investments that I've done in my bike.

    Yeah... I don't have a GD or the Mav one... I was thinking about the GD without the remote, but last time I tried to scratch my neuticles while riding, I almost fell off the bike. Somehow reaching something between your tighs and below your butt gets difficult while riding (at least for me).

    Warp, what I could say is that if some people find useful a fork remote instead of reaching the fork itself, it's even more difficult to reach between your legs, as confirmed by yourself from your "neuticles scratch" test. I wouldn't change my handlebar full of remotes (GD remote, PopLoc and something else soon ), no matter how cluttered it looks. Can I say "ergonomic" freak? I think so!

    GDs have 2 major drawbacks:
    - they don't come in setback posts
    - once you have a GD, you have no more excuse to stop and adjust your seat, and accessorily catch your breath.

    I have the 1"-3" on my Switchblade, and it is great. Its one of those things you never realize how much you need until you actually try it. I had the TALAS switchblade (before some upgrading), and think that adjustable suspension travel is a bit over-rated. Adjustable seat-post (esp. on interupted tube frame), way under-rated.

    If you get one, I highly reccomend the 1"-3" version. I use the 1" drop a lot more than the 3".

    Maverick Speedball In BIKE this month...

    BIKE Magazine has a long term review of the Maverick Speedball. Its a pretty good review. They got four of them, one of them went back for warranty repair - it was bad right out of the box, one needed a little oil and the other two "have been going months without complaint and their riders are unwilling to give them back".

    Sounds like a good deal. I'd love to get something like that for the trails around here, the ups and downs are short, its hardly worth moving your seat only to have to move it again in 10 mins.
