1/2 So, I _was_ totally that guy. Now in my defence with slack STA, mainly riding hardtails when droppers really became the dominant choice, 100mm or 125mm seemed fine. Sometimes I’d manually lower them extra for really steep trails. Now, I had many friends who said they wouldn’t switch to dropper posts until they had 8” of adjustment. Now they all caved by the time posts hit 150mm, but some stayed with external routing to make it easy to manually lower the posts extra until very recently.  Now I have a 160-170mm dropper on my rigid bike! So yeah, I’m there but props to the folks who didn’t delude themselves into riding 100mm droppers and thinking that was all anyone needed.
