Two months into running OneUp Components’ 240mm dropper post, I’ve concluded many things, one of which is obvious…it’s big. It’s time to answer the age-old question; is bigger better.
Okay, so why does someone need a 240mm dropper post? If you use the word “need” loosely, it’s because most seatposts at full-drop still have a somewhat significant amount of seat post showing. This one, however, is FULLY out of your way.
Available Drop Lengths: 90mm, 120mm, 150mm, 180mm, 210mm, 240mm (Tested 240mm)
Available Post Diameters: 30.9, 31.6, 34.9 (tested 34.9)
Here, the only fashion we can talk about is the fact that you can brag to your pals about how BIG your post is. If we’re honest, this will be the only time you’ll ever be able to do that, so soak it in.
If you’ve got a send-style bicycle, that’s in need of a bit more send-ability, this is your jam. No one else is making this, and it almost seems ridiculous because it’s oh-so-good. The price is also extremely affordable, especially if you already have a remote.
Don’t forget, OneUp also offers a two-year warranty against manufacturer’s defects. If you’ve ever used an OG Reverb, you’ll be happy to have this in your back pocket.
All in all, if you need a dropper, consider this a frontrunner.
Reality (does it do what it says it does): 10 Function: 8 Fashion (swag): 8.5
