separate lines are to stop the people who confuse dropper posts with front mechs.

But my RH brake and shifter have the same writing on them! What shall I do?

E*thirteen has a 9-46, which nearly gives as low a gear with a 32 chain ring as the 22:34 on my hard tail. Not looking forward to the TipTrack on 32:42.

They also have the dropper lever Veloci wants.

Yup, that'd do it, but I'm having so much fun rebuilding my spare shifter after accidentally taking it further apart than I ought.

More like expensive needless weight in a bodge solution due to a shitty standard that nobody asked for :(

After days of searching 3 eurobike articles I have found what I and others was looking for!

Crane Creek are making a 3rd party, MMX compatible, cable fastening, thumb shifter dropper remote. I will be getting one of these.

Looks good.
Personally gonna run my X9 dropper lever for a while, but let us know how much one costs you, and how you find it.

Will do

The missus is in the States and Canada in 2 months so hopefully will be available by then. Going to get a whole lot of BMX parts shipped to her olds as anything out of the US doubles the cost!

Ever felt your chain was getting in the way of your rear suspension working properly?

Canyon has the answer.

Watch the video.

Yup
All advantage I'd gain from better suspension is out the window when I forget to engage it and slip a foot pedalling through some ruffies.

I noticed quite a difference when the clutch is off on my derailleur so much so that I leave it off all the time now. But having to remember to reengage the freehub would result in many stem meets plums moments im sure.
