Now that the One Up EDC is available anyone going to get one?

https://www.pinkbike.com/news/oneup-components-edc-everyday-carry-available-now.html

I don't like that it doesn't fit a CO2 head and the single tyre lever (I snap a lot for some reason) but still considering it.

Still on my quest to not have to carry anything. I've got rid of the fanny pack and currently using a 76 Projects Piggy https://www.76projects.com/shop/thepiggy which allows me a 700ml bottle still. Also have a Backcountry Research Muthaload strap http://backcountryresearch.com/mutherload-frame-mount-strap.html for an extra tube and CO2 on long rides.

You used to be able to store stuff inside a seatpost too. Not anymore. :lol:

Manitou just launched a dropper post. Because the world needs more dropper posts.

Here's mine:

This one locks down as well as up. So you can't accidentally lift the seat and suck it full of air.

Is that a set screw on the collar? Or have they brought back the microlube port?

Vorb discount? ;)

Is it cable actuated? What's the remote like.

That's all cool and all, but seems like a lot of effort to do the job of what a small seat bag used to do 20 years ago?

Price is $499 and sizes are 30.9 or 31.6mm with 125 or 150mm stroke. We don't discount but you're free to negotiate with your local bike shop: https://www.shockcraft.co.nz/jack-dropp ... nitou.html None in stock yet but we'll be bringing in the 125mm versions with immediate order. I have a pre-production version which I haven't yet been into. I think that's a locking grub screw but I'll find out when I do a pre-emptive service. Only fitted it Friday and it's been raining since.

Cable actuated, standard lever is a round the bar type to work with front shifters (for luddites like me). But the post will work with any aftermarket cable lever.

KS still looks like the best option for 27.2mm.

Yeah, 11mm in three days. Not just raining down here in the valley, but washing all the snow off the mountains too. :(

The weather forecasters then teased us with snow to 500m then 200m. But no. That's been revised to nothing exciting. We did get a see-through dusting of snow on the mountains last night. Might be a good cap on the back side facing Qtown, but need to get up there to see.

That Manitou lever looks solid too, good leverage (unlike the Giant one).

I think they do a pump that you can take the head out and use as a CO2 adapter?
