OK, so I got a 30.9" 420-125mm drop Reverb, no probs. So there I am, with another bike, like you do, wanting another dropper post, like you do. Ya know what it's like, you want to save a bit of weight, without giving up pies. So I goes for a 30.9" 380-125 drop,
Now, the problem is, is that the post is a bit 'sticky' "It's cos of the seat clamp's too tight mate!" amongst other things, is what people shout at me. I loosen it off, but then the post sinks, it ain't tight enough now! It 'works' but it doesn't work properly like the 420.
So, is the 380 length version any different? are the innards a bit further up the post? so now when you clamp the post the thing sticks?
