PNW Components loves the long mountain bike rides where quad blistering climbs lead to epic descents, where your elevation gain is a badge of honor that earns you miles of flight down steep singletrack. This type of riding inspired both the sport of Enduro and their Bachelor dropper post. It was key for them to produce a lightweight beast to tackle this type of trail riding so you can climb easier and descend faster. They achieved this with a sealed damping cartridge enclosed in ultra-light 7075 alloy. This means a lighter bike and consistent performance, ride after ride. With models featuring 150, 170 or 200mm of travel, the Bachelor will support you when you need it and get out of your way when you’re getting down the mountain.
The Bachelor is all new and shiny for 2019 with an upgraded cartridge and more lever options to choose from. The post also gets an added DU bushing for enhanced wobble resistance (because, as they like to say, the only thing that should be wobbly on your bike is your legs after a long ride).
Customers ask how the Bachelor dropper post differs from the internally routed Rainier. This is a great question, as the Bachelor is a similar looking product with a higher price. The Bachelor uses an air cartridge, as opposed to a coil spring. It also is made out of a lighter 7075 alloy.
