With dropper seatposts a standard fit to most trail bikes there’s a huge choice now available. the Specialized Command post has impressed us in both reliability and performance.
We first had a taste of the Command post on Specialized Stumpjumper and Enduro test bikes that rolled through the doors at Dirt HQ. The first version of this cable-operated post has three positions (just like the early Fox dropper), and a fairly clunky operation. A basic lever, designed to sit well with a left hand shifter, felt a compromise after the smooth action of the RockShox Reverb. The Command post kept on working though – and showed promise. The second generation IIRC version addressed all these concerns and quickly won us over.
