Rather than phone all the bike shops, just wondering if anyone knows off hand if any of them carry the 185mm Bike yoke dropper post.

I need to make sure it'll fit before purchasing. 

They seem to get great reviews, anyone have anything negative about them?

Any other brands to consider that are in the 185+ mm range? I already have a 150mm dropper and 54mm is stick out from the top of tge seat-tube to the collar. I don't think it's worth spending the cash for a 170mm, miniscule different for the $$.

I have had a 160mm Revive on my bike for this season.  It has been flawless.  Their measurements on their site are pretty spot on, so you should be able to determine if it fits from their numbers.  The only other brand I can think of off hand that does 185mm+ would be 9point8 (who are apparently having a sale on their posts right now).

I have one too. I've been running it since May. No issues whatsoever. Nice smooth action, great ergonomic remote. The reset option is great - I used it once so far. Theoretically it's user serviceable as well.

The only other option with this much range is the 9.8 Fall Line which is available in 200mm. 

Fit-wise you should be able to figure out everything you need with a tape measure and the specs available online.

Thanks for the input.

I'm guessing you both purchased online?

I got mine from Jenson. They had them on sale for 15% off and Active Junky had a 15% cash back day when I ordered it. Made for a pretty good deal.
