A dropper post has one job. Go down and then back up—which I guess is, two jobs. Simple jobs, if ever there were, but it’s surprising how lousy most droppers are at them. In fact, in all the droppers I’ve ever had, only one, I repeat, one, has worked properly for more than a couple months. At this point, you’re probably expecting me to tell you that that one post was OneUp’s V2 dropper—but surprise, it’s not. 

And yet,  the V2 is still on my personal bike in regular use with no plans for a replacement.
