- How To Secure A Reverb/Dropper Post
Rather oddly, I use a Hope QR for mine. Just as it was on the bike already, and haven’t changed it.
One thing that does spring to mind is that there’s a potential with a bolt through to really overtighten it, either damaging the post, or perhaps leaving it more susceptible to breaking in case of a big stack. QR seems good on that last case for me so far! 🙂Posted 6 years agoDaveyBoyWonderMember
Same as CFH – my Five had a QR fitted to it and I’ve not seen the point/been faffed to change it for anything else. Plus if I’m stripping the bike to shove in the boot (and keeping the back seats up) then having the post QR as well as the Maxle front and rear axles makes things quicker.Posted 6 years agojohnnersMember
Just a standard clamp here. I’m sure there’s a case to be made for something more secure, but where are you going to draw the line? After all, someone could have my front wheel and forks away for the price of undoing 2 bolts and cutting a hose. Spare brake calliper free with that too!Posted 6 years agoThe PinksterSubscriber
I’m using a bolt clamp and an amazing new invention called a torque wrench to stop over-tightening – something that is quite easy to do with a QR lever as you have no method of measuring the force it’s applying.
Especially as they’re quite specific how many Nm should be applied to the clamp on a Reverb.Posted 6 years ago
