A question for those who've had Reverbs serviced / rebuilt under warranty.
EG, I had thought that, but it sounds like there are parts that have been redsigned to minimise play (not that this bothers me) and more importantly I’ll prob be off the bike for the next 2 months or so, so it seems like a good chance to send it away. That and I don’t have a bleed kit for it (I think).Posted 6 years ago
Overall, 8 months into Reverb use, I’m very happy, not done anything other than the minimum servicing post ride and all was well.
However…. the return rate seems to be getting slower (even when on max on button).
LBS 1 reckons that a bleed will sort it out.
LBS 2 reckons that it’s prob worth sending it back for a warranty rebuild / service as it’s also got a tiny bit of side to side and front to back play (which LBS 1 said was par for the course after 10 months and nowt to worry about).
So…. my question is whether or not it’s worth sending it back for a service / /rebuild under warranty or do I just bleed it? What I don’t want to happen is that it comes back not working as well as it has been (having heard some Reverb horror stories!)!!!
Or am I just over thinking this?
Reverb users, your thoughts / experiences please.
Edit: And how long have you typically had to wait to get it back. Ta.Posted 6 years agoroddi18Member
Mine blew an air seal too after a couple of weeks so i phoned fishers directly and they said that so long as i included my receipt with the post, i could send it back to them through any bike shop. Mine was back to me in under a week and had no more probs since but i don’t use mine on every ride as i still don’t think they are tough enough to be ridden hard 3-4 times a week.Posted 6 years agohartcliffeburnerSubscriber

a bleed even after shortening the hose. However it has blown
twice, the first time it came back and felt exactly the same as new, which wasn’t bad
but there was a slight side to side play, when it went for a second time fishers to
their credit had it back to me in under a week, the post now feels a lot firmer
with no side to side play at all, I’m hoping this is down to slightly modified internals
and it doesn’t blow again.geetee1972Member
Mine was losing something that meant there was a play in the initial shaft movement. Fisher said to send it back which I did via my LBS. It came back in about a week and in addition to having been fixed, they also replaced the hose with the updated hardware that gives better connections at either end of the hose.
I thought that was pretty good service.
One thing I did learn (yet again) is how much less I enjoy riding the bike without the dropper post! I can’t ever imagine not having one now.Posted 6 years ago
