#!markdown I agree and I have anecdotal evidence/experience that says slacker (real) seat angles are harder on dropper posts than steeper ones. Then whether it's the time of year (conditions), the fact they generally have slacker seat angles, the lack of damping of the fore/aft force (more force into the post), or ?, I think a lot of folks who ride both would agree their hardtail eats more droppers. It seems intuitive at least? Anyways I've got my well-fed exterior, a slack seat angle, a hardtail, a history of killing dropper posts, and a healthy skepticism (not to mention a plethora of skeptical buddies) so I think I have my bases covered!
