If you monitor the Facebook mtb buy and sell pages you will get something for that price rangr.

I picked up an internal routed 125mm giant dropper for $140 a few months back for the young fellas bike. I run the same post already.

The brandx seems to get good reviews for a budget post. For an externally cabled post or one with a lever under the seat, you can't do better than the KS dropzone, or KS Eten.

DNM seems to get very good reviews - a common comment is that you need to put a spring at the end of the cable and that mounting the release lever can be tricky if you are not running 1x. I'm thinking about putting one on my Anthem.

I run a dropper on the Felt Cross country bike, and it is great mine. is similar to the one shown

went and bought an RSP plummet post from the UK- $203 inc express post- external cable so i was able to set my bike up in 5 minutes- absolutely awesome - up/down works like magic.
