    'Invest'? you expect to make a profit?

    I went for the Decathlon dropper, cheap (even more so if you got one in the sale at £30), very well made and so far 100% reliable, however it doesn't come with a remote but a 'Micheal Jackson' lever, I didn't want a remote so it doesn't bother me (I swap for a rigid for relevant rides so didnt want the hassle of swapping a remote on and off)- I reckon one could be made fairly easily using a cable though if you are so inclined.

  • No, I don't. That was my mistake. Yeah, that one does look like good value for money but i would be worried about how long it would last. How long have you had it for now?

    Had mine for 2 months, developed a tiny amount of rotational play (less than the Reverbs I've looked at) on the first ride, since then it's been 100% perfect.
