i did end up selling mine JY - possibly to you if i remember correctly
not my fault you are mechanically inept though
im having a bit of a issue with the air at the minute
The proesecution rests
i didnt like the GD, didnt like the klunky mechanical feel of it all, it felt like it was made in someones back yard workshop
yes its hard to see where the money goes tbh as it is a seatpost, a spring, a shaft with some holes in it and pin to hold it in place
Failed once but it was a cable issue as they are designed to use gear cables and these fray at the join IME.
Would not own a non remote version personally -perhaps the hydraulic lever makes it easier but the GD version was about as useful and easy to use as a QR lever tbh
harsh, im not inept in the slighest, i just didnt have the tools/patience whilst out to sort it out (plus i had friends with me riding, so didnt want to make them wait for ages)
i fixed it when i got home (pissed off), and it did it again a few weeks later whatever the problem was, so i sacked it off
id only owned it a few months from new so didnt want to be fannying around with it after short space of time and didnt want to send it in to america to have it fixed properly
i wasted alot of cash on it, my own fault admittedly, but had i paid 70-100 quid for it id have not been to bothered, but given it was 225 for as you put it a 'seatpost, a spring, a shaft with some holes in it and pin' i felt very robbed indeed
i dont think any of the posts on the market are sorted yet, including the GD, but its been around alot longer than a reverb so should have more stability/reliability, as said id prefer send it off to fishers to be fixed within 2 day turnaround than send it back to america/do it myself whilst its in a warranty period
but the reverb is on another planet though in terms of everything else imo, and im sure it will be as reliable as there forks in a few more years...
