Not happy with the current arrangement of your dropper post’s remote? At this point we’ve seen a few different options for improving the ergonomics of the drop from replacing the remote entirely, to modifying a front shifter. But for an easier, more cost effective solution, Lindarets is turning dropper remotes on their head, or on their side as it may be.
Rather than completely replacing the remote the new Lindarets ReMount allows you to reposition your current lever and adds increased adjustability in the process…
Made in the USA from injection molded Delrin which allows it to snap onto the bar without removing the grip, brake, etc., the ReMount is pretty simple. Though it still took 8 revisions to get the positioning and design just right. The use of Delrin instead of CNC aluminum also means the ReMount should be less likely to damage your handle bar when you crash.
Built to the same diameter as a handlebar, the adapter provides a horizontal mounting position for cable actuated remotes that would otherwise be vertical mount only. By repositioning the remote lever you no longer have to loosen your grip on the bar or contort your thumb just to work your dropper post. Measuring 30mm in length, the ReMount also provides additional vertical adjustment so you can position the remote lever exactly where you want – basically where the shift paddle would be for the front shifter.
While the ReMount is mostly designed for bikes running 1x drivetrains, Lindarets mentions that some of their testers have found it to be an improvement even while running a front shifter. Illustrated by the bottom left photo above, the ReMount’s band is slender enough to fit under the indicator pod of a Shimano shifter as well. Due to the design, the ReMount is perfect for any dropper post that has a vertical mount, mechanical remote including the Giant Contact, Specialized Command Post, Thomson Covert, KS Droppers, and others. One of the few dropper posts that aren’t recommended for use is the RockShox Reverb since it is not ideal to push a plunger in from the side.
At just 21g (with stainless bolt) and $19 shipped to your door, the ReMount is probably the easiest and cheapest way to improve the ergonomics of your dropper’s remote. Available now, you can head on over to the Lindarets store to order one for yourself today. As with other Lindarets products the price includes a credit for standard U.S. shipping which can be applied to expedited or international shipping as well.
