Do you want a dropper post that works all the time and never has any issues, or do you want one that needs yearly service and will likely stop working in the middle of a ride? This is rhetorical, I already know your answer.
(clears throat) I mis-measured. The tower has clearance. I'm passing on the the 400gram Specialized XCP for the more robust, and 130gram heavier PNW Rainier. Now to gut the rs505 lever and start drilling holes
Thanks @shrpshtr325 and @MadisonDan for the suggestions. You got me to get the tape measure out. @Glenn Rides After 4 PM CST, when's your birthday?
