Gonna hijack this thread as I think it is nearing its natural conclusion I suspect.
I got a oneup dropper v2 this year. It was on a build for about 15 rides. It clicked with each pedal stroke. Oneup was very good and replaced it.
I put the new one in a new bike in late July. It was not the fastest returning post but worked and didn't click. After about two months of semi-regular use i took it out and rebuilt it as it was returning very slow. Reason for the slow return was no grease. Everything was perfectly clean but there was almost no grease. I cleaned and lubed it all and now it works as it should have out of the box.
Here is the rub. I noticed that the stantion of the post is now showing some signs of wear in the anodizing due to having no lube. It probably won't affect performance ling term but its kinda annoying that I had to remove a brand new post and rebuild it because they didn't put any grease in it.
Should I warranty it or just ride it? It isn't the most expensive dropper so I am leaning towards just riding it. They were pretty good about the last one. I guess you getbwhat you pay for?
I've elected to throw some fork boost on mine and ignore the problem. Will see how that plays out... This has been the most finicky dropper post I've owned since my first one (a second hand crank brothers joplin)!
