Better than something that is designed as a lever connected to the handlebar of a bicycle, in a location which has been proven to be a good spot to actuate with your left thumb whilst riding, which in turn pulls a certain amount of cable and actuates a remotely mounted mechanical device?

Edit - I have no idea how it operates, is it like a push/push operations? Or a push/click and then release type deal? If its the latter then something like a RockShox PopLoc would work?

There'll be an aftermarket lever which is slimmer and lighter than a front shifter. I think the new fox unit might be the same cable orientation.

But better ergonomics?

I'm surprised you 1x blokes would even have a dropper, its so much more complicated than doing it manually and requires the use of the left hand.

But it replaces the front derailleur.
Up = granny
Down = giv'er

Same as the shifter under your left brake.

I'd like to see you use a seatpost for a front mech

I suspect you'd rather watch me use a front mech as a seatpost.

500 Nerf Darts from Ali Express $17 USD delivered!

I think by anyone's standard that gives me significant points towards being Vorb Father of the Year.

Luckily I'm not in contention for that particular award.
I'll stick with Vorb Trophy Husband of the year.

There's more lounging by the pool in tennis whites involved.

The criteria are pretty loose, you could still enter.
Gotta be in to win.

Nah it was a real possibility for a while there when we were looking at moving to Canada but it fell through.

Looking for a cheap bass amp?










Or if you mean Rockshox... I am also interested.
