- Doss or reverb if same price ?
There is a seller in america doing them for 300 dollars (about £190) posted free to a us adress. My sister is in florida and home for crimbo so thought i might get her to bring one over for me or i could get a reverb over here for similar money just thought the doss is worth a punt at that moneyPosted 5 years agoDickBartonMember
Reverb…after seeing a selection of posts, out the 2 you listed, Reverb would be it…the fox has a MASSIVE bar lever and seems to be overly complicated if in a rush and you hit the wrong button…the return rate seems to be ferocious…make sure your body isn’t anywhere near it or bits of your body will be removed.Posted 5 years agodirtyriderMember
ive had both
always fannying about with the reverb, limitless options means you never know where your seat is going
doss is simple, set the highest setting to where you want for climbing/flat sections, drop to trail for anything else in 1 click, never use the lowest setting
return rate can be adjusted with less pressure, lever is fine, dont see what all the fuss is about,Posted 5 years agonasherMember
i cant help thinking that the fox is 3 years out of date. comeon 3 positionsetting? like the original gravity dropper and you candrill a hole where u like. also cables dangling from the saddle? ks is now free of cable slop, and thetes reverb stealth.
seriously why would you buy the fox unit?Posted 5 years agommelMember
KS LEV for me, was out in the worst wet gloop I could find at the weekend and the LEV just kept working. The cable operated remote works great and the saddle drops to just where you need it, when you need it.
I really don’t understand Fox’s thinking with the DOSS, why reinvent the wheel. And as for that remote 😯Posted 5 years agosvalgisMember

Or just buy the multi which comes with an additional 1″ drop from the box, if you don’t have another specific drop in mind. But yeah, I have to agree with you, though I personally like the fixed positions as to keep it simple (only up or down for me). Never tried one with infinite adjustability though, would be keen to do so, but I wouldn’t trade my GD Turbo for a DOSS.Posted 5 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
The remote on the Doss looks horrendous but a lot of people like it for its ease of use…
Agree with all the comments above about waiting til it’s been real-world tested, I don’t think there’s been a single dropper post that hasn’t run into problems once released on the world. And it’s not as though Fox have a sterling reputation as far as things that look shiny in the showroom then melt when you get them muddy go.Posted 5 years agoFuzzyWuzzySubscriber
If you don’t specifically want a hydraulic post then KS Lev would get my vote over a Doss. It’s been out a few months now and don’t seem to be any wear & tear/failure-in-use issues being reported (mine’s been fine), plus non-growth cabling and a really neat bar lever (assuming you use lock-ons anyway). Only issue is it’s a bit more money than the Reverb, worth it though IMO.Posted 5 years ago
