      Wow, not sure what happened there. This should read better…

      Hi Guys,

      I am doing a research project for school on the topic of dropper posts, specifically their impacts on XC riding. I am currently looking for to piece together a public opinion as to whether droppers improve performance (speed, safety, endurance, etc.) in Cross-country riding. Does anyone have any experience with this? And if so how has using a dropper helped?

      Finally, for those who are interested, I have put together a survey. It should only take 2 minutes or so. https://qtrial2017q3az1.az1.qualtric…fcGkSeWLV1hbOB

      Huge thanks, guys!

      Sam.

        I guess I’ll be the edge case here. I have a dropper post and find that I am less stable and slower when it’s down. I don’t know the last time I used it and am pulling it off my bike this week in favor of a static post.

      Well, I ride XC….and I ride with a dropper post….I’d take your survey, but somehow the address you gave gets munged. Clicking the link goes nowhere.

        Oh, Ok thank you for that. If you are still keen, this address should work: https://qtrial2017q3az1.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_2fcGkSeWLV1hbOB

        Thanks

      My son has a dropper post on his XC race bike.

      I have a dropper post on my XC bike, I’ll take the extra weight because I am (or at least feel) a much better rider and faster with it than without it.
