I am not an Enduro, big air, lift rider. i like long days in the dirt and the occasional XC race. I have never used a dropper post before because I didn't think I needed one. Man was I wrong! The control and confidence you get dropping your post on the steep stuff is really amazing. I am really tall and have never felt super comfortable rolling drops since my seat is 10" higher than my bars. Now it is no problem. So glad I gave this a try.
