While dropper posts have become the new norm at the trailhead, we've been pretty limited when it comes to those for narrow seatposts. Just because our hard tails run a little bit on the skinny side doesn't mean they should miss out on all of the fun, and thankfully the handy engineers at PNW Components seem to agree, presenting an array of posts for those of us with slender-tubed steeds.

Whether you're idea of fun is hammering miles out on your local XC network, gravel grinding down a road to nowhere, or hopping in a sand pit for grueling CX laps, the Pine 27. 2 allows you saddle up with the comfort of 105-millimeters of infinite adjustability on the bike. The Pine was engineered as the follow up to PNW's much loved Rainier, featuring some of the same technology, but with a little more thought going into the external routing than the Rainier, with routing starting at the midcap for a cleaner feel that won't chatter around or bulge out when you're dropped down to the max. It brings you 105-millimiters of infinitely adjustable travel, which may sound short in stature compared to the lofty 150mm's we see on the market, but it gives you more than enough space to drop your post and get well behind the saddle on steep descents. This shorter drop also pairs much better with bikes that sport the smaller, 27. 2mm seatpost diameter than longer posts do, which can end up feeling flexy underneath rider weight when shrunken down to a narrow diameter. This post hosts a full 390-millimeters in length, enabling you to find plenty of adjustability to dial in your saddle height for the ride. If you had the opportunity to run with any dropper post when they were still the hot new thing, there's a good chance you expe...
