Anyone have one?

I'd probably prefer one with the lever under the seat (rather than on the bars) but I'm not fussy really.

Cheers,

Joe

I've got an xfusion dropper in 27.2. Bought for a build but have not used it as decided dropper was overkill for me. Its used but in decent condition, ive not fitted or used it myself sadly. Cost me £30 inc postage. Any good?

If joe doesn’t mind and decided not to take it I would be interested.

Thanks

Tim

Here are some pics. Since buying it it has sat in the box it arrived in as the project I bought it for changed direction (well, changed entirely as rather than build another 26er, I opted to get a 27.5 frame which required a much larger post than the kona I had originally intended to build).

It's in pretty good shape visually, some cable rub/scuffs to the collar. The shaft is pretty clean too, there are some blemishes up near the seat clamp, so towards the limit of the drop. Hard to picture as they are more discoloration really.

The outer cable needs replacing but the inner looks new.

I've not fitted or used it but have dropped it by hand and it works as I believe it should (never ridden dropper post aside from an old joplin).

Yep definitely interested if joe is not. What’s the drop 100 or 125? Oh and how long from min insert to saddle.

I've just measured. Drop looks to be 100mm (measured visible shaft), min insert from rails is 320mm.
