Hey guys, I have a 2016 Giant Anthem Advanced SX. Love everything about this bike, minus the Giant Contact SL dropper post. I do mostly single track, weight 160 lbs, and 5'7." My budget is up to $350.
Thanks!

I’ve been using PRO Koryak and it’s been good. Much better than Reverb. Easy to service too if needed.

+1 on the Koryak. Been using it the whole season, no problems at all. No stiction between the outer and inner stanchion and care-free use.

I'm really happy with my fox transfer.

Happy with my Thomson + wolf tooth lever. A good lever is key, most manufacturers are getting better, but a dropper isn’t game changing until you can take full advantage of it.

I ended up with a Fox Transfer with Wolf Tooth Light Action release. My LBS will receive it this Thursday and install it the same day. Looking forward to a better riding experience!
