Thinking outside the post.
In the well saturated dropper post market, it takes something special to make a new offering standout. Bike Yoke's Revive Dropper Seatpost does just that. The Revive represents such a different take on dropper post functionality that Bike Yoke may as well have called it the Departure—as in, a departure from what we've come to expect. Namely, dropper posts that operate with an Internal Floating Piston (IFP) design, which is used to keep oil and air separate in the hydraulic system. If your dropper has ever inspired trail-side expletives, chances are good that IFP is to blame. It's a notoriously finicky design because of the precise tolerances and hydraulic babysitting required, both of which will often manifest as stuck or outright unresponsive droppers.
The Revive throws off the burdensome IFP yoke in several ways. First, it literally eliminates the IFP. Second, it cuts the number of dynamic seals in half compared to the three most common dropper models, going from four to two. The result is a simpler system that doesn't require the precise tolerances and perfect seals of the typical IFP design, so it just works better because, well, it just works. And it keeps working without the issues inherent in IFP designs gumming up the works.
If there's one drawback to the Revive, it's that, without the IFP keeping them separate, there's more of a chance that air and oil will mix. This can generate a bit of give when the post is extended, but Bike Yoke has the solution. Its Revive Valve lets you "bleed" the post with nothing more than a 4mm Allen key and a bit of pressure on the saddle. That's it. On the trail, in the garage, outside of the bike shop, in the bike shop, in the bike shop with an Allen key you borrowed from the bike shop because you lost your multi-tool—anywhere, anytime. It's the simplest bleeding process we've ever experienced.
- A dropper post that privileges reliable function and simplicity
- Unique design eliminates common causes of malfunction
- Hydraulic system resets with only a 4mm Allen key
- Pins and bushings replaceable without opening hydraulic system
- Single piece lower design is stronger and less prone to rotational play

Best dropper I've used so far
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I picked this dropper up for a Following MB build I did for myself, and man, I have been incredibly impressed. Pulling it out of the packaging, it is clear that these guys are an engineering company first, and design/marketing second. All the little touches like the cable cut guide and quality of the hardware prove this thing is designed to last a long time. Setup is super easy, and I found that the system is not exceedingly sensitive to cable tension, which makes tuning it in a breeze. The triggy remote also pairs right up to a matchmaker clamp, and adapters are available for iSpec, so it keeps your bars super clean
On the trail, the action is super smooth, and return speed is quick, but not "trailside vasectomy" quick. It worked flawlessly for me for a long weekend trip to moab, and although it developed a tiny bit of squish in the post due to the altitude changes driving there, a 10 second "revive" fixed it and it has been problem free since.
Overall, I'm incredibly happy with this dropper, and if the long term durability is as good as I expect it to be, it will be by far my number one choice.
Does this include the 2-by remote?
Does this dropper include the triggy remote and all the cables?
It sure does, triggy and cable/housing and the little barrel for the actuator fitting are all included.
