Today we’re reviewing the D&M dropper post.
You’ve probably been looking to get one and this is going to be an endorsement. I was
very impressed with the build quality from the very start I am when I got the box in the mail I
couldn’t believe how lightweight it was and the I thought they might have even shipped me the wrong thing The packaging and the
instructions were not really the best in the world, but I mean
we’re talking about an entry-level dropper post here so I
wasn’t surprised. For instance, it doesn’t tell you how to mount the switch. If you’re installing this yourself you’ll need a suspension-specific pump to set the pressure. If you try to use a normal pump then.. you know… good luck with that. Like I said it doesn’t show how to mount the switch, but I mounted mine like this If it turns out out to be wrong I’ll be
embarrassed at the trails and just flip it back around the right way. I routed the cables inside the frame because I have a spot for
internal cable routing, but you can just tape it to the side or whatever. When you’re choosing the length of the cable housing make sure you have the seat up. Here. I’m using a cable housing cutter, but you’ll probably use scissors or a knife or
something because you don’t have any tools. But that’s okay. They give you little
guide to run be cable housing up the seat post. just feed the cable through They give you this little tiny allen bolt to secure the cable in at the end then you want to cut the cable to size
you know with your scissors or your teeth or whatever you decide to use. Here I’m using crimpers to put
the end on there but you’ll probably end up using a channel lock or pliers or something. I should hope by now you know how to install a saddle. if you’ve gotten this far somehow and
you don’t know how to install a saddle then you know… I don’t know what to tell you.
You should probably bring it to a bike shop right away. Looks pretty sweet right? I tested it and it didn’t really work right.
It didn’t go all the way up smoothly. What I found out is that when I filled
it up with the suspension pump a bunch of air burped out while removing it. Like…really a LOT of air came out. So the next time I pumped up a lot more, and took the thing off really quick and smoothly. The next time it worked
fine. Let’s take it for a ride. Drop the post and do something erratic. Pop it back up. Here’s the drop… There’s the dick move… then it goes back
up So anyway the verdict is that I love this
thing. Super solid all around, super lightweight
and didn’t break the bank. I left the link in the description below where I got it at Amazon. Pretty
much the cheapest place I could find. You won’t regret it!
