- Reverb compresses when I sit on it?
My new one did this in May, only 4 weeks in to me owning it. Sent it back to SRAM who fixed it, stating ‘Air Gap’ as the cause with a whole host of seals and parts replaced.
It worked for a bit then did exactly the same thing again four weeks later. Sent it back again and got a brand spanking new one a week later.
The only thing it could be apart from completely foo-barred is that the pressure is down. Check it’s 250psi or otherwise a trip back for warranty beckonsPosted 4 years ago

Yep have done that a few times, hike a bike and all that. Has that fooked it?
Had a chat with the Sram guys at a recent race. Pulling the saddle up is likely to bugger the post a bit as (iirc) it can pull air past the seal, resulting in this dead spot when fully extended. Luckily, at the moment, they will cover warranty claims for this (suppose there’s no warning anywhere telling users not to do it)Posted 4 years ago
Just bleed my reverb and noticed that when I sit on it the post drops about 1cm without pushing the button. It about 16 months old and I thinking about it, it was doing this before I bleed it.
Is is fooked or can I fix myself?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

The post is definitely faulty if it squidges. Mine started doing that after a couple of months, and has just been replaced under warranty by fisher. Had a complete mare getting Evans to replace it after the first replacement came back damaged and didn’t want to do anything about it. Got there in the end though.Posted 4 years agoMad PierreSubscriber

So next time I see the Sram guys I should tell them they’re wrong?
You can tell them their colleague in the video above says they are wrong!
I’ve seen a couple of older posts (one was mine) that the problem happened on and neither post has been pulled up. It was just worn seals and sorted with new seals and service.Posted 4 years ago
