      I want to add an external routing dropper post to my hardtail that I plan to give to my son.  It is a 2x so it has a shifter on both sides of the handlebars.  Any suggestions?

      Most dropper posts come with an over-the-bars lever like this that fits beside a shifter lever. (This is the Cascade, which I highly recommend).

      Folks who are running a 1X drivetrain usually opt to buy an aftermarket, under-the-bars lever.

      Would highly recommend the Fox Transfer as it works very well and has been put through the wringer.  (Most of these remotes can be paired with  matchmaker clamps you can purchase that allow you to attach both the shifter and dropper remote).  I’m not a fan of the Reverb.  I just picked up the Cascade (as Jeff recommended) for my XC bike because I’ve heard good things.

      A follow-up to my initial post about an externally routed dropper post.  I bought the PNW Cascade and have used it for about 5 out of the last 7 days.  So far, so good.  Installation was pretty simple and it works pretty smoothly.  Thanks for the recommendation Mr. Barber.
