.lenconAlso since I'm here and want to jack your thread. Do deity posts work as drop posts? like if I buy a bike (Spartan Devinci) that has the drop sea system stock can I swap out the actual post? That's probably a noob question but I am a noob so yeah
You can swap out the stock dropper post for a Deity post no problem if you get the correct diameter seatpost.
However, a Deity seatpost will not have a dropper function, so if you don't want to stop at the top of a downhill, or bottom of a climb to manually open and close a quick release seatpost clamp, or pull out a multi tool to loosen and then tighten a seatpost clamp to get your seatpost in the correct position; keep your dropper post.
