    Propper post - Infinite versus CC

    Before, I adjusted my seat height before each ride to either a normal height for XC riding or 1.5" lower for trail riding and I tought a dropper post would allow me to switch height on the fly with the additionnal ability to completely drop the seat in very technical sections. So I bought a a Fall Line R dropper post from 9point8 that I tried today and I'm very disappointed that almost impossible to set it to a mid stroke position while riding the bike. And when I though I had the position right, you found not long after that it's a little to high or too low. :-(

    So, I'm now wondering if I should have bought a dropper post with fixed positions (like the Command IRCC from specialized)!?!?!?

    Do you set your at different heights or just use it either full extended / compressed?

    I have a KS Lev which is infinite adjustment and I use it at various heights.

    Not even sure what you are asking. I very rarely use any of my droppers to set "intermediate heights", even though they are capable of doing it. When that is the case, I find my infinite-position droppers work just fine for it. I think this is the experience of most people with droppers, that the infinite drop posts work great.

    Although i prefer 3 position posts, i suspect it's because that's what i'm accustomed to. Like jayem, i almost never use the intermediate height setting... but i like knowing exactly how high the post is when i use it. (exclusively for technical climbs)


    10 years ago i needed to drop my saddle a lot more than i do now- longer modern bikes are easier to ride at full seat post extension.

    To each his own, though. Both styles have their advantages.
