Even though Paul himself may still be on the fence about the use of a dropper post, that hasn’t stopped PAUL Component Engineering from creating their latest product. While PAUL probably won’t be creating their own dropper post any time soon, they have created their first dropper post remote, the Dropper Trigger.

As usual, the Trigger is made in the U.S. from 6061 aluminum and machined to 0.0005″ tolerance to ensure things are quite precise. Following in the footsteps of WTC in using bearings for the pivot point, PAUL uses dual stacked bearings for perfectly smooth operation.

When it comes to compatibility, the Dropper Trigger should fit most cable actuated posts as it has pinch bolt for cable ends, or a pocket for cable heads to work with either design. A barrel adjust with a steel threaded piece allows for micro adjustments or to remove slack in the line.

Built with a hinged clamp to fit 22.2 bars, the lever has a claimed weight of 40g. The levers are available in four finishes, with black, silver, and purple anodized selling for $86, and the polished version going for $92.

Now if Paul could just remember to use it so his butt doesn’t get confused…

I’m sure that these are nice but saying that every other lever sucks is kind of a low blow. I’m a big fan of the Wolf Tooth levers for their ergonomics and lever feel. Maybe he could have said “I didn’t like any other lever I tried” instead.

It’s business, not friendship. If it wasn’t competitive, we’d only ever get one sucky version of a product. Guys like Paul are a good thing.

The PNW Loam lever feels bomb.

C Berge says he likes his Wolf tooth Light Action better. Worth some consideration.

$86 and $92 bucks… WTH!? do they come come a dropper included? There are a ton of aftermarket options available that work great for much less. I personally like the PNW Loam lever, while not the cheapest option either, they are really well built, look fantastic and work great! Got them on a sale for $55 and I couldn’t be happier. Sorry Paul, these levers need to drop in price.

Pauls levers are built to the tightest spec and is a local company in chico California, and they make some of the best parts you can buy, and you definetly get what your paying for, their parts are better than most on the market and have a really good feel.
