We've got a few things up our sleeve in 2019 that we're excited about. But while we wait for those projects to get out of the development oven, we're serving up a PNW favorite, the NEW Bachelor Dropper Post. As PinkBike editors once rhetorically asked, "What's lacking about the Bachelor? A big name and marketing budget. That's it. The Bachelor works well and after six months is proving as reliable as the better posts on the market." And our Bachelor still utilizes this same great tech, but we've made some upgrades to make it even more lovable.
First, we can finally offer bikes boasting a 34.9 diameter seat tube a great dropper option (👋 shout out to those Evil Wreckonings, and new Specialized Enduros & Stumpys). We're also spec'ing Loam Levers with each Bachelor because they make for a killer dropper set up.
On the technical side of things, we're even more committed to getting rid of wobble. It's a fun dance but it doesn't belong on your bike, so we've added a DU bushing to combat play in your saddle. Finally, with a slimmer midcap and a larger diameter stanchion the Bachelor drops some grams and increases stiffness.
