    Dropper on a 2017 Revolver FS 9.3 ... Has anyone done it yet?

    Hi All, I have the Revolver FS 9.3 and really would like to put a Dropper post on it.

    Has anyone done this and what size dropper did you get? Overall length and amount of drop....

    In short...What will fit on a Large frame.

    Cheers...

    No one can answer this question without knowing a few pieces of information:
    -what is the full height to your desired pedaling position.

    -What is the maximum insertion depth of a seatpost for your frame. This depends on the frame and linkages. Basically you can take your existing post and see if it goes all they way down before hitting something.

    -what is the minimum insertion length of the post you are interested in

    -what is the overall length of the seatposts you are looking at

    -what is the length of the drop you are interested in, 80mm, 125mm, 150mm. The longer the drop the more seatpost length needs to be inserted into the frame.

    look at these drawings: https://www.pnwcomponents.com/pages/measurements-page

    Basically, there will be a range available to you between the minimum insertion height and the maximum insertion height that the overall length of the seatpost needs to fit within to achieve your desired seated pedaling position.

    Hi there, I got the KS Lev 31.6mm / 400mm / 125mm drop and seems perfect.....this is on a 2016 7.1 FS however.

    Just measure how much seat you have sticking up from the frame currently and make sure there is enough for that + the minimum insert and you'll be fine

    Thanks for the responses. Got busy with daughters softball and sons racing and put this on the back burner. I was looking at the crank bros with a 125 mm drop but couldn't pull the trigger. Also started thinking that I'd like a new fork before the dropper.

    Cheers,

    Longer travel or different fork? I think the Recon can be moded to 120.
