RockShox Reverb 125mm Seatpost 2012
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'. The all-new Reverb gives you 125mm of infinite seat height adjustment and control of your return speed in a hydraulically actuated remote package. A custom sealing system means the plush and consistent feel of this seat post won't degrade, no matter how much the weather does.

When dropper post first came out I was a skeptic, but boy did this thing change my mind. I first tried the reverb a couple years ago at Outerbike outdoor demo. It was so convenient to raise or lower my saddle in seconds with the push of a button. No need to stop or get off the bike because the push button is with in a thumbs reach. It's so awesome coming up to a down hill or techy section, just drop it down to give you more room to get off the back of the bike and maneuver around. Come up to a climb and "Boom" right back up into climbing position. The speed at which the post raises back up is adjustable too. I've had my Reverb on my bike for almost 2 years problem free, and that's saying a lot cause I've rode it in all conditions dust to rain. I will be rebuilding it soon and I'm sure ill get many more fun rides from this post.
This seatpost is awesome. It works exactly like it's supposed to. Took it to a shop to have them cut and bleed it, then it was good to go. So easy to control, remote is responsive, and lets you put the seat in any position you want it. You can also mount your shifter to the remote to save some space on your bar.
Love the post, but it does require additional maintenance over some of the other competitors (KS). Bleeding the hydro line is pain, but it only needs to be done about every 6 months on my post.
I had one of the first generation models and used it for over 2 years. Other than having to bleed it before the first ride and about 3 more times since then, it was a great seat dropper. Never had any issues. There was even an upgrade hose kit, but I never got it. Sold it with my last bike, otherwise I might still be using it.
