Anyways, how about the Specialized Command Post? I've had 2 seasons use on mine, and its worked great.
Just curious.. why do you say this?b-kul said:gd is probably the most reliable, reverb is the best feeling imo but still relativly unproven.
just from the outside looking in it seems to me that most people with a gd post say they are built to last. the camary of seatposts i guess you could say lol. just going on a general survey gd seems to have the most reliability. imo the reverb rocks so far but it is still too soon for anyone to say that for sure.tshulthise said:Just curious.. why do you say this?
My experience was that the GD was the LEAST reliable. The cable housing comes out at a 90 degree angle to the post so its easy to bend it when you are off the seat which causes the cable to stick. It would have eventually failed in less than one season if I would not have installed my own homemade strain relief. I also had to fiddle with the nut on the bottom of the post because if I didn't it would not lock in the up position.
The KS has required a little fiddling but it still sticks. I also broke the cable housing tube in front of the actuator but it still works without issue. Overall a lot more reliable than the GD.
The Reverb looks bulletproof to me but I haven't seen it used long term yet.
yeah, it seems like fox is bringing nothing new to the table. the remote looks clunky too. i suppose it will be reliable (at least it better given the stage they are entering the game) but it seems like most other companies are getting their act together there already.mimi1885 said:I would not hold my breath on Fox post, from what I see on Youtube it's less than impressive. I'm pretty sure they'd polish it up and put in a nicer package with more ergonomic remote, because as is, it would just suck.
Fox is promoting their seal, and like Monstertiki said their Kashima stanchion but really, if they were to release this post 3 years ago or even 2 when many companies still have that problem then it would kick a$$, this late in the game most major contenders already have the problem under control already. Plus according to the Vid it's not infinite adjustment it's like Talas 3 position post. I'm sure Fox is not showing their final product yet, hopefully it would look good.b-kul said:yeah, it seems like fox is bringing nothing new to the table. the remote looks clunky too. i suppose it will be reliable (at least it better given the stage they are entering the game) but it seems like most other companies are getting their act together there already.
