I'm planning to go adjustable soon and it occurs to me that the slacker actual seat tube angle on my Endorphin might affect how some posts work. Or not, but I thought I'd ask, what do you guys think/use?
For the most part, I think they all work well with the angle.
I had GD Turbo on the DT. On the Delirium, I had the KSi950, which worked great until I rode it in the rain and mud (the primary lever got stuck). My buddy uses KSi950 on his DT.
I have the Reverb now and I like it. The other day we rode in the wet and a guy with a Specialized Command post and he had troubles, because of the mud was getting trapped under the seat where the primary lever is located.
If you don't run in the wet and mud, you should be okay with most of them. If you ride in the wet and there is grit, then Reverb being a closed system is ideal!
The reverb is really sweet, despite having to bleed it out of the box. Takes 5min.
If you get one, make sure you get one with the new hose, they beefed it up, and it makes a difference in the performance.
Ran an AMP which I still think is a great post. Now have a Reverb which I prefer as I like the 5" of full adjustability vs the 1 or 4" drop of the AMP. The AMP is full mech so you can plop yourself down at the bench for a service. Not so much with the Reverb.
The action of the Reverb is so smooth and the other nice thing about it is the speed adjustment - you can get it to a return speed that is fast enough but without bag punching you if you are a bit too low which can happen with the mechanical spring returns - trust me on this one :eekster: :madman:
