    Evening,

    Looking to purchase a reverb seatpost, are there different models? Is the 13 model an improvement on previous models?

    They are cheaper at on one with no bleed kit? Is this a false saving?

    Anyone know who’s keenest on price at the moment?

    Thanks

    James

    buy from somewhere that has good warranty support

    Proper good advice that. Fortunatly – Fishers are ok with dealing with warranty claims for German bought posts.

    But – and it’s probably an important BUT – you need to get an LBS in the UK to send it back for you. If you’re not sure of that – then get one from your LBS/Merlin/CRC etc.

    And they do go wrong. Both of mine have had to go back. I dont know about the ’13 changes.

    I’m on my fourth Reverb since April, all replaced under warranty by SRAM in Windsor (I know the address off by heart now!) but fortunately a good mate runs my LBS so they go back through him.

    Buying through a reputable vendor is essential in my opinion

    Oh, doesn’t sound good. So taken was I with the concept of post droppage that I imported one of the very first gravity droppers. Even after all these years it’s still working.

    Should I look at the Thomson posts, I hate stuff going wrong.

    Oh, doesn’t sound good.

    Well I wouldnt say they’re perfect (lots of folk have no problems) but when they go wrong the warranty service is pretty good and quick.

    Also the usual mode of failing (IME) doesnt leave you stranded mid ride (eg mine both slowly lost / gained 2cm of extension play). The cure is to move the post up 2cm. Until it annoyed me and then it got sent back under warranty.

    Was so close to buying one last week. I’m not sure a suspension seat post is really worth £200 ish. Can’t convince myself either way.

    It’s not a suspension seatpost, I fear you may have misundersood somewhat, it’s an uppy downy post.
