A friend, who I recently introduced to mountain biking asked, “Why are there so many new dropper posts in the market?” as he saw me install another new dropper post in my garage. I said, “Sit down, son.” as I explained to him the landscape.
His remark was indeed true as this seems to be a hotbed of new product introductions. The reason is the category is fairly crucial now in mountain biking and the product is not mature yet. So many key developments are still evolving and old ones are being addressed.
