Solid choice, sub-optimal lever
I put the 160mm Crank Brother's Highline on my Santa Cruz blur and have been pretty happy with it. The weight is very competitive and the dropper itself works well, but I don't like the stock crank brothers remote very much compared to my wolf tooth (unfortunately, there wasn't space for the wolf tooth alongside the suspension lockout lever). Compared to the Wolf Tooth lever, it's hard to push, and results in the post taking about 1 second to go up (versus ~.25 seconds). Not a huge deal, but I notice it.
The post has been very reliable with minimal (i.e., zero) maintenance so far (knock on wood!). I would happily use the Highline on another bike, but I'll definitely look harder for a different lever option next time.

Ultra reliable dropper with a super fast and easy setup. What more do you need?
