Product Description

Enjoying the benefits of a dropper seat post isn’t just for the elites. The RSP Plummet Remote Dropper Seat Post brings the joys of dropper posts to a more accessible price point.

The RSP features 125mm of drop with infinite adjustability. It is an air-free design with a hydraulic damping. It is cable operated with a handlebar mounted remote. The remote can be attached to either side of the handlebar to cater for every setup preference.

The RSP Plummet is available in both 30.9mm and 31.6mm diameter and has a dual bolt inline saddle clamp, making it easy to get the saddle in the perfect position. The Plummet has external routing, so doesn’t need a frame with internal routing to be used.

    Update

    After 15 months and fairly minimal use this has failed. I removed the cable to replace it, as I thought this was the issue. I discovered that the piston in the top of the unit, which is actuated by the remote in order to lower and raise the post, is loose. The post now behaves like the remote lever is fully depressed all the time. It is up when no weight is on it and goes down when sat on. The unit is not serviceable and so it can only be thrown away. I would not buy another one of these. Better to buy a good, reliable, serviceable one for two or three times the price than having to buy a new "cheap" one every year or two.

    18 month review

    Had this post for 18 months now and it's finally given up the ghost. I had been impressed by the quality and price up to this point. It's a shame that everything is press fit because you can't actually service it, or fix it without causing more damage. The remote lever broke about 6 months ago and has been pretty slack since fitting (sideways slop, not cable tension) I installed a bush which helped. Now the post won't lock out because the internal mechanism has blown apart somehow. Unfortunately it's outside of the the 12 months warranty so I have to decide whether to replace with the same or upgrade, but how much can I justify spending on a bloody seat post! My advice is probably to buy it, and if you get past 18 months every month is a bonus!

    Works great but bushing came out

    At the time of writing this review, I have had the dropper post for about two months. It was really easy to fit and it works quite well. I really have to push myself down to get the post to go all the way down, but I suspect that I am a bit lighter than the target market. Recently the bushing has come out of where it’s meant to be. I suppose that this just means that mud can get in, so I just have to look after it. All in all tho, this is a great product for the price and I recommend it to anyone who wants a dropper post but doesn’t want to spend too much money.

    Long term review

    I've had this dropper post for 18 months now and as a whole it's been great. The dropper itself has been flawless and I can't fault it. However... The problem I have is with the lever design, which I've always thought let the whole product down as its been loose and cheap since the beginning. The design and way it pivots has over time pinched and worn through the inner cable, which is now fraying and on it's way out. To make things worse the tiny grub screw that locks the cable has rusted into place and rounded off on the inside, so I will have to replace the lever and cable. RSP now offer replacement levers but with the same cheap design, so you'd be replacing it again for the same issues at £18 a pop (+ cable). I still think the dropper post is decent and works very well for me, but the lever could be greatly improved and would be a good deal, even if it put the price up a tenner or so!

    Two down......

    I've had two of these dropper posts, the first had a slight rattle which meant the nose of the seat moved around. Tredz provided me with a replacement (excellent customer service throughout) but that started to rattle during a ride and ended up in a complete failure where the inner post collapsed and would no longer lock out.

    Rsb plummet

    Mine has failed after 3 months even though I clean and maintained if thoroughly. Mud gets in the top causing mechanism to jam. Really it needs a gaiter to keep mud of shaft. Cable case falls apart. I will get another one as no dropper post can possibly be worth over £300.

    Superb!

    What makes this a great post? 1. Easy to install, took me 5 minutes and most of that was faffing with cable ties 2. Simple to use, push the button and site down, then when done stand up and push the button again 3. Pleasant to use - the raise speed is good, quick but not violent. Dropping the post is smooth and 125mm is more than enough I've tried this out on a very wet and muddy ride and it works perfectly during all of it. I recommend this post.

    Seatposts Guide

    What are seatposts?

    The seatpost is the extendable metal rod that slots into your bike’s frame, with a clamp at the top to hold your saddle.

    Who needs a seatpost?

    Every bike has a seatpost, but a common reason for fitting a new one is to get a longer post for a leggy rider. Weight saving is another prime reason for upgrading.

    What are the choices?

    You need to pick the right seatpost width for your frame, but then you will have a choice of materials, from practical aluminium to weight-saving carbon. Mountain bikers can also opt for dropper posts, which are tremendously useful out on the trails.

    What should I buy with them?

    You might need a different seatpost clamp to go with your new seatpost and hold it firm in your frame.

    Anything else?

    Finding out which seatpost width you need can be a tricky business. With luck it will be stamped on the inside of your bike’s seat tube. It is measured down to tenths of millimetres, so eyeballing it with the tape measure won’t work.
