It's not what we say that's important, it's what others say.
From Pinkbike's 6-month review: "What's lacking about the Bachelor 150? A big name and marketing budget. That's it. The Bachelor 150 works well and after six months is proving as reliable as the better posts on the market. To date, it's been a set-it-and-forget-it kind of component... something you can't say about every dropper post on the market. - Vernon Felton"
"They’ve succeeded in bringing an affordable and functional post to market"
"Only thing I dislike is that I couldn't afford the internal routing model! Amazing post with extremely simple setup."
"Outstanding fit, finish, and quality. Superb customer service. Everything a good company should be !"
HOW WE DO IT
There's more than just great prices
SIMPLICITY IN DESIGN
Some people love the art of "tinkering". While we appreciate the art, we don't expect our customers to. We use a sealed damping cartridge to control the return rate of the saddle, allowing you to focus on having fun on the trail, not worrying about bleeding or rebuilding your post frequently.
The number one question we receive is whether there is play in the head of the saddle. Our answer is always no, to which we get a very puzzled look. Our post uses a keyed slider system where the inner portion of the lower post has machined slots and the stanchion portion has brass keys that fit into the slots. By using this simple design, the post is able to move freely vertically, but unable to spin. Pretty cool!
WHO WE ARE
The short story: We hate how expensive bike parts are. That’s why we started PNW Components. Our team has decades of experience working for top bike brands in the industry, fostering strong relationships with leading manufacturers and working at the forefront of what’s new in the bike world. What this means for you is top performing dropper posts, handlebars and stems at a fraction of the cost.
The longer, but still kind of short, story: The PNW team rides downhill, enduro, cyclocross, XC, gravel grinders… we’ve even tried unicycles but none of us are very good at that. We think bikes are so rad that we ended up working as bike product managers, product developers, graphic designers and engineers for the top bike brands in the world. During this time, we traveled the world studying bike markets, bike design, and learning from incredible manufacturers about how to create great products at low prices.
But you’re probably sick of hearing our resume, and want to know what this all means for you.
While working in the bike industry, we noticed something; by the time products we designed made it all the way to customers hands, too many parties got their hands in the pot which increased cost significantly. We want to change that model. By keeping overhead costs low, working direct with manufacturers and focusing on engineering products that delivery exactly what customers want but within their budget, we’re able to save you money and ultimately have it stay in your wallet.
