If you’re a dropper post aficionado, you know how hard it is to go back to a rigid post once you become addicted to the style of riding that a dropper enables. Fortunately, SRAM just announced that its full line of line of hydraulic road 1x shifter/brake levers now have integrated seatpost remotes. The paddle that’s usually assigned to a front derailleur (on a 2x lever set) now actuates a cable-actuated dropper post. Here are the details on each…
