what's happened to my reverb…?
It actually depends on the post position as to how sensitive it is. If the post is fully compressed then it probably wont move at all (unless your bike is very heavy!). If your post is only compressed an inch or so a small bit of pressure on the underside of the saddle will be enough for it to move up. Chances are you’ve only moved your bike with the saddle with it fully (or near fully) compressed or at full extension in which case you wont have noticed it.Posted 5 years ago
Some lad had crashed on the werewolf drop at cannock today, I got off and walked down the section. When doing so, my reverb was at about half mast I grabbed the back of my saddle and noticed that it bounced up to full extension, and then shot back to where it was before when I let go.
I’m sure it didn’t do this before…?
I got home, cleaned and bled the post and remote, let all the air out and pumped it all the way up to 250PSI and its just the same.
It’s been looked after, just a case of sending it back?Posted 5 years ago
Recovering is boring, I cant do anything for myself. I can stand in a couple of weeks so looking forward to that.
Have you fixed your phone yet?
I am planning on starting the proper riding next year with a Welsh trip in Jan. That will probably be my first proper ride after the op.Posted 5 years agoJoeGSubscriber
I have a KS Lev; it doesn’t do that at all. When not riding the bike, I can use the saddle to lift the rear wheel or whatever. The saddle remains at the same height and doesn’t move at all. Unless I push the remote lever…
I think that it would drive me crazy if the saddle moved when I went to move the bike around.Posted 5 years agotheroadwarriorMember
Just to say (for balance) mine never does this and I lift the bike by the saddle all the time. I read in the manual you can pull the post up in an emergency if for example you damage it. The op seems to be saying it drops down again when you let go- there’s not much point lifting it up if it’s just going to return to where it was so it seems to me this is different to that ‘mode’Posted 5 years agojuliansMember
mine always does it, and has done from new. Just lifting the bike by the saddle is not enough weight to do it, but if you pull the saddle up and hold the bike, the saddle will move up and then ‘spring’ back down when you let go.
Seemed normal to me, not concerned about it all.Posted 5 years ago
I’m just glad I’m not going mental… It was confirmed its not supposed to do it and as such is broken and will be getting sent back… Never know might get a new one out of it or at least it’ll get rebuilt and serviced for the price of postage.

I think the supplier is assuming that the post is going down and not remaining at its set point. What you are saying is that it goes up when you lift the bike by the saddle and then returns to the set point when released. Three of us have Reverbs and they all to the same and have done from new.Posted 5 years ago
It is a dropper post and it drops and rises to the set point whilst riding. What difference does it make if you can extend it by picking the bike up with the saddle?
