I've read a lot of comments on the Romic shock [particularly in the bike manufacturers forums] on how unreliable this shock is, i.e., seals get blown or something, or the shock has to be sent in for servicing, etc. Has Romic fixed the problems on the new production runs or are they still trying to work out the bugs up till now?

I haven't had any problems whatsoever with my R0mic. It came on a '03 5 Spot demo that I bought so God only knows how much abuse it took before I got it.

Both knobs still adjust it perfectly. Great shock!!

I am considering buying a Romic but the reviews here on MTBR are super poor. I called Romic directly for a view on the reliability but all I was told was to look for the color of the adj. knobs being different on the newer models but all I looked @ had the red/ blue knobs. I wonder if I should push my Vanilla RC or go Romic. I really want an adjustable platform.

Been running one on and Ellsworth Id since the bike came out, no problems with the bike or the shock.
