The world of dropper post is a crowded one, and it takes something pretty special for us to sit up (pun intended) and take notice of a newcomer to the scene. OneUp Components has made us do just that. Knowing the quality of products and innovative ideas that OneUp Components has come to be recognized for, our curiosity was piqued when we got word that they were throwing their hat in the dropper post ring. But, we were left with questions of what would make them stand out from the competition. Luckily, we didn’t have to wait too long to get a chance to jump on a call with Jon Hadfield from One Up Components to pick his brain on the ins and outs of this new challenger. Here’s what we learned, and why this sub-$250 dropper post is going to make it onto our bike upgrade/add-on lists.

Given the choice, we’d always prefer to ride without a backpack. But no one wants to be 'that guy' who needs to borrow tools, or be left walking home while your friends enjoy the rest of the ride. OneUp Components wanted a solution that would allow us to carry the tools that we need for every ride, without wearing a backpack. Check out the Everyday Carry tool system.
