Why on God’s green earth would you buy something from someone who claims to not even really use the item he is selling?
It’s like the opposite of buying that hair growth goop from the guy who claims not only to be the owner of the company, but a client. Or was it not only was he a client, but he was the founder of the company?
Either way, unlike those miracle hair growth formulas, Paul’s 22.2 Dropper Trigger never leaves you wondering if all the hype is just that. Don’t give it a second thought, the Trigger will grow on you.
And it is during these stressful and uncertain times, as I tighten my wallet and consider what the future is going to look like, where I think looking to companies like Paul’s Components has extra value.
At Pauls things are loved over by a small group of artisans and handcrafted to pretty impressive tolerances.
Sure Paul says he’s not really convinced a dropper post is something he is interested in for himself, but he seems to have still given a shit about those of us who don’t ever want to ride without one ever again.
It is machined in Chico, California out of 6061 aluminum and has a pair of sealed cartridge bearings, two different cabling options, barrel adjuster and hinged mount the Trigger is ready for just about any dirty whip you can mount it to and it comes in a cavalcade of color options.
We wanted to embrace the experience that is the Paul’s colorways, but we couldn’t pass up the bling of the beautiful chrome version.
Do you need a new lever for your dropper?
Probably not, as the majority of companies have caught on to the importance of quality lever and the game has greatly improved.
The thing is though, the Paul’s trigger works beautifully, feels great under thumb and never ceases to start a trailhead conversation.
And now, Paul has added a 31.8 Trigger into their lineup, so all you gravel-grinders can drop in style to your heart’s content.
We might even consider going purple on our drop bar, fat tire bike.
