That’s just the button kit, if the inner bore has been scratched/scored you’ll need the whole thing and it’s still a ridiculous price for what you get.
OP should get away with the button kit, mine snapped internally and scratched the inner borePosted 5 years agoJunkyardMember
trying taking your hand of the bars and grabbing under your seat when you want to lower – unless it is very smooth you need to stop. In reality you have a very expensive slightly quicker quick release lever
Never broke my GD remote and that is $20 for everything but you can buy it in bits so unlikely to break it allPosted 5 years agoyetiman1Member
Ha, just posted on this very topic on PB last night. Caught mine on shorts on a switchback the other night(mounted under bar on left), totally gutted, £40+ :cry:. RS really need to look at pricing and stop taking the piss! So it’s standard post till the end of Jan for me, unless Santa’s reading this!Posted 5 years agosbobMember

I remember dropping my normal seat post with QR on the fly, seat gripped between the thighs. 😀Posted 5 years ago
There certainly was a knack. 😕mudfishSubscriber

you still got the knob?
my Reverb switch shaft broke after a shorts catch and my bikeshop mate ran me up a stronger plunger shaft on his lathe. The standard one is cast and seems prone to snapping.
I could put you in touch, he might be up for it
email me offlist, see profile, let me know where you are based
Mine is under my LH bar, no shifter there.
In two years of falling off, riding through bushes etc I only managed to break mine by crashing on a set of doubles. I ended up sticking my thigh into the lever and effectively stabbing myself. It was a quality crash.
I paid about £40 odd via TF tuned. I dont think its fragile, no more so than say a shifter.
Way better than trying to let go of the bar and grab one under you seat. Not only will you look like Micheal Jackson, you will also have let go of the bars just when you need to be in control.Posted 5 years ago
