The only problem with my Oneup is that I could have gotten a longer one and shortened the drop. I didn’t calculate right. To me, one should get as much drop as one can fit. No one said you have to drop all the way all the time, but sometimes a little more is a lot better.  Contrary to popular opinion my Reverb 150 on my four year old hardtail that gets probably 100 rides a season, has had one remote bleed in the first week and then absolutely nothing. The thing has been stellar. The first Reverbs all had that design defect where you could pull the saddle up when dropped which sucked air past the piston. I had fine performance with a few first gen Reverbs if I didn’t pull up. Part of the Reverb reputation is that they came on way more bikes than any other. People tend to complain more than compliment so even a low failure rate of a high number of units sounds bad. Plus so many had no clue how the remote worked. Sagging post? Just bleed it. Numpties. Might as well change your derailleur cable for all the good that will do. Plus the overhaul process is far too complex. You shouldn’t need proprietary tools, and many of them to maintain a post at home. That’s one reason why I bought the Oneup when my Bontrager post cacked just before a trip. Parts are all listed on the Oneup site and were in stock. Simple maintenance. This is what most people want as well as drop amount options.
