Who else has snapped the remote on their reverb?
On perhaps the worst ride my year so far earlier this week I managed to balls up my cassette, chain, jam the rear wheel and end up lugging the bike 2 miles across moorland.
In the midst of all this fun, I have snapped the remote button on my reverb. I’m sure others have done this too so…
How much is the replacement and how easy is the repair?Posted 4 years agocycl1ngjbMember
Seen it happen previously – a mate crashed in the Alps & had precisely the same thing happen – he had to ride most of the week with a fixed height post.
Couple that with the other thing I’ve seen go wrong with the Reverb (snapped off cable under the saddle when removing from a workstand) are the main reasons why I’m not running this dropper post.Posted 4 years agoesher shoreMember
snapped the remote (Caught the trigger on my shorts whilst standing) on my Reverb last year whilst riding to train station to catch train for riding. rode home, swapped Reverb for Thomson fixed post. hated that ride as I instantly missed the dropper post on steep descents.
next day, I rang SRAM Tech / Fishers, admitted my fault. They replaced FOC and back with me by end of week.Posted 4 years agoPookSubscriber
hora, speaking as the person who broke my reverb when I let you have a go on it, I’ll take your comments with a pinch of salt, ta.
Plus, it was me that snapped the remote. Nothing to do with me thinking it was sticking, broke or anything else. And when, on any ride (bar the one where you bust my reverb) have you heard me say anything other than it is awesome? Where on earth do you come up with these opinions, because it’s certainly not through personal experience or by witnessing it first hand.

Anti-dropper post fundamentalists amuse me: I first started using a dropper in 2007 (imported gravity dropper from the USA). The grief I used to get from the rest of my group was crazy, I didn’t care as I enjoyed the advantage. But lo and be-hold they have all subsequently fitted droppers. We have a new member and after a recent ride he went and bought a dropper; our group no longer stops to adjust saddle height and he was constantly caught out.Posted 4 years ago
