RockShox Reverb Dropper Seatpost

DESCRIPTION

When you're ripping through rolling terrain, cranking the pedals one minute and getting off the back of the bike the next, no seat height is "just right".

Strength:

Smooth when it works, infinite positions.

Weakness:

They get squishy over time. Service costs are high. Better lever/actuation options on the market. I've had 3, all purchased new, and they all failed after 18-24 months. Service costs about $150. Just switched to the OneUp - think I'm done with hydraulics.

Love the infinitely adjustable positions. Easy bleeding.

Strength:

None they are big fat POS!

Weakness:

Design flaws where do I begin! On my third one and give up went to the flawless Fox Transfer. Gets stuck in cold weather, fails completely. Makes you real pissed when your in the woods and it fails, making you climb steep rock gardens standing on the pedals for two miles POS!

Poor product don’t buy it.

Strength:

- adjusts to any position

Weakness:

- barb hose fitting broke when putting the bikes on the trailer. This fitting ( it sits in the remove and connects the hydraulic hose to the remote ) is very flimsy and only held by a 1.5 mm fitting which is the weak point. once it breaks, you're stuck with a non-working seatpost. It WILL BREAK.

Nice dropper, unfortunately due to the design flaws, it's not worth the money. IMHO the Fox, Thompson and KS droppers have a better design. Also remember that the additional hydraulic hose requires bleeding, so you're down for some more maintenance than with a standard, wired post.

Brand name.

Weakness:

Unreliable.

After reading so many negative and so few positive reviews, I've decided not to pay a lot of money to be a beta tester. It's outrageous, how it is even possible to pay so much for a stick with a button and it to fail.

Strength:

Not too many right now. Great when I first bought it 4 years ago!!

Weakness:

Does not move in temperatures less than 35 degrees at first and now not even responding at all!!!

Would not recommend purchasing this post. After 3 years of owning the post, one time of servicing, I am looking into another seat post. With the cost of servicing and not having a loaner to ride during service time, it is not worth it!

Strength:

It's the best thing to add to an XC bike- when it works.

Weakness:

I gets stuck in the down position during cold weather.

Let me begin with saying that this product is one of the best add on's I've put in my All Mountain bike. (When it works) The problem is that I've already had it replaced once & serviced 3 times on the new one. It's been bled a few times and still gives me issues. Mainly in the cold weather.

Fast Action

Unreliable

A2 version, internal. Came OEM on bike. 5 months in and about 120 hours it blew up. RockShox makes you take it to a certified service shop first for a service before they will warranty it. Wouldn't work with A2 rebuild so shop rebuilt with B1 internals. 2nd ride on it and it blew up again.
