9point8 is just like any other dropper (but better)

Oops, you're right. I they have a rearward offset, but not forward. wonder if you could run it backwards and get a forward offset.

It uses an expanding cylinder as the brake, so in theory it should be more reliable. Comes in 175 or 200mm. Weight is competitive. The head is pretty trick: you can adjust seat angle with out loosening the seat rails.

I'm just trying to justify the increased cost of a 9point8 over say a FOX Transfer or Thomson post. Nothing wrong with both Reverbs I have just they won't be making the jump to another frame.

If one could buy a 9point8 without the remote so one could get a WolfTooth remote that would be pretty bees knees.

Why slag free swag?:rolleyes:

ummm, as your doctor i recommend against riding with a scaphoid fracture.

I've got the raceface turbine remote and I'm quite happy with it. The wolf tooth one looks nice too, plus they have the ispec setup.

by the time i justify the cost for a dropper and something with 29" wheels everybody else will be talking about riding one of these…

I'm not a human in real life, I just play one on the internet.

Yeah, but bikes go in between trees. Those hit trees (remember, they're piloted by guys who can't hit anything in other conditions).

I think Jim was on the Sight at the Williams Lake race , I remember looking at his bike and it looked different in some ways , it also had a multi tool attached to the seat post tube above the BB .
