It was only a few short years ago that you basically had two dropper options: cheap, finicky ones that rarely worked and expensive, finicky ones that mostly worked. Fast forward to today and there are loads of options, most of them good. We went from one tough decision of which one isn’t the worst but still inexpensive to which one works best for me in an endless sea of options? We have PNW Components to thank for adding a whole bunch of options to choose from.
I’ll just put this out there right now: PNW does not make a bad dropper. PNW’s lineup consists of seven different droppers, all of which are highly rated and made to suit a certain style. Not sure which one is for you? I’ll give you a brief rundown of each one to help you decide which one to drop on your bike.
