Loam Dropper Seatpost

Replacing the PNW Bachelor Dropper Post, the Loam Dropper brings many of the same features we loved on the Bachelor with great frame compatibility and a lighter weight. A redesigned stanchion allows less of the post to be inserted in the frame, so more frames can accommodate the dropper post and riders can run a post with more travel. Like the Rainer Gen 3, the new Loam Dropper allows you to customize the suspension travel by reducing the travel up to 25mm in 5mm increments. Finally, an updated actuator boasts PNW's smoothest action ever for better overall ride quality as you hit the trail.

Works well so far

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Works well but only used a few times. Let's hope it stays that way. Tried others well known brands but was disappointed.

A great alternative to a Fox Transfer

The PNW loam dropper is fantastic. The price point is much lower compared to competitors, like Fox. Installation was very simple. I also really enjoyed the tool free micro adjust. This is great for frames with tricky insertion depth.

It's the little things.

I've put it through the wringer

First off, this is a great dropper post! The tool free adjust is amazeballs for fine tuning the post travel on your bike. The air valve is actually under the seat mount and requires removing the seat and mount so I never adjusted the PSI, I set it to 300psi and its been there since new. It did start to slow down and didn't want to stop where I had it set after about 8 months of use and 3-5 rides a week , so I ordered new bushings from PNW and rebuilt it which was a breeze and now its as good as new again!

Great product until it breaks.

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Loved the One Up V2 but this was on sale. Worked fine until actuator just fell off after 2 months. They sent a new one, and a video to fix it yourself. But actuator was impossible to remove with just large adjustable wrench and hand. One Up on other hand was breeze. Wouldnt buy again. *Update: actuator pins fell out again. They refuse to offer refund since its bought here on Backcountry. Buyer beware.

This is the best dropper I have owned yet. PNW you have made a life long supporter out of me. Easy to install, love the fine tuning of the travel that you can do. quiet, works every time, speed is great, cable actuated, and customizable colors, you can't go wrong! I am stoked at how well this works on my Foes Mixer, size Medium

Rattles Like Empty Beer Can

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Had high hopes for this dropper. First ride out it rattles terribly at full extension. That's a non-starter right there. Second, the lever feel is stiffer than other posts I've used. I'd steer clear as QC seems nonexistent. Returning..
