Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I’ve been the proud owner of 3 Santa Cruz bikes (nomad, tallboy and hightower) and all have been spec’d with a rockshox reverb stealth post and all have had issues despite me NEVER picking up from post when down etc.....
One broke and wouldn’t return to height on a trip to Moab. Trip ruined and needed to be sent to rockshox, leaving me without a bike for several weeks.
Second post developed a ton of vertical slop (bouncing up and down, highly annoying) and needed to be sent back for repair. Post worked for a month or so, developed same problem and this time Rockshox wouldn’t warranty because there were “chips on post” that they felt caused the issue. Forced to buy a new one at at slight discount from backcountry.
And now, on a $8,000 hightower with just over 200 miles of use I have the exact same vertical slop. Tried to bleed and it didn’t help at all. Need to send back and be without a post for several weeks in the middle of the summer.
I can’t recommend this POS post any less. This is a known issue that happens constantly and rockshox has done nothing about it. Go ahead and ask any mechanic, this post is rated as the biggest joke in the industry. Stay away. Stay far away from this POS
