i am fairly sure that gravity dropper do a 30.9 version dont they?Posted 5 years ago
yes, i have/had the same problem with my specialized command post, i did manage to sort it, funnily enough when i changed a kinked xtr outer cable for a cheap clarkes one from halfrauds!!! think it must be a slightly bigger bore, i just make sure its well oiled and so far its been ok, however if i forget to clean the bike (tuttut) then it takes a bit of fettling! i think the best bet is prob a reverb, however whilst mine is still ok it will have to wait!
Matt, yes totally understand, didnt really think of price, thought issue was post diameter, my fault for not reading properly!Posted 5 years ago
But it’s only(!) £85, so worth a gamble anyway?
That’s what I reckoned, so bought one last week (one of the £85 ‘brand new 2013 model’ ones, with the ‘black box’ pin release wotsit on the post)
Spent Saturday stripping it down and greasing all the moving parts (including the gubbins in the black box). It all worked pretty well on a ride up and down the road, but (muddy) time will tell.Posted 4 years ago
Well, yeah, it could, but I guess that’s reflected in the price. Plus, it is greased when it comes, I was interested in how it works mainly but also figured that more grease couldn’t hurt.
The black box was dry inside though, so that’s one area where I reckon there should be some grease/lube on the moving parts (which mine now has)
It’s actually a really simple mechanism, there’s not a lot to take apart (or go wrong)Posted 4 years ago
Oh, and FWIW, I bought mine from this lot and the delivery was quick:Posted 4 years agoseaversMember
I had a variant of one of these, bought new for £78. The post its self was not bad but the lever mechanism is awful. Impossible to use quickly and I found the post needed an extra tug to get it to click back into the fully extended position. By that I mean the spring didn’t have enough power to fully push the seat post back up.
I got rid. It might have been better with a decent cable, mine seemed to stretch and I mean on a ride not over time!Posted 4 years agoseaversMember
I’ve got to say that my experience differs totally, lever works well, post works well, very, very happy with my purchase.
Nowt like STW for conflicting advice
It could also be that there are many variants of this dropper post made by different companies. I am more than willing to accept user error but did use it for a week in Scotland so gave it a good try. The guy I got it from was UK based and was working with his Chinese supplier on improvements. In time it might be a great buy just not there yet from my experience.

Ah, I thought I had the 2013 version! I bought this one:
The cable in mine goes through a nasty 90 deg bend, I wrote about it here:Posted 4 years ago
