My reverb is on its last legs. Recommendations for a new dropper? Reliably is key, think wanna go with a cable instead of the pneumatic oil system like the reverb. Found my last 2 reverbs...haven't worked so well in the cold temps.

Don't have a recommendation, but I'd steer clear of the Fall Line 9.8. 2 warranties and its still not working consistently.

If you have coin to spend, get the Bike Yoke Revive.

If you're on a budget, get the OneUp dropper V2.

One up, why pay more?

I have a newly installed One Up V2.1 which has been great so far and haven’t noticed the rattle some talk about.

Looks easy to install. 

Which lever did you get?

Depending on how bad your reverb (and the version) is, the wolf tooth sustain is worth looking at.  Converts your reverb to cable actuation, have it on two bikes no issues with cold or any issues period and super easy self install.

I have a one up v2 on one bike and PNW Rainier gen 3 in the other. The PNW is a way better post for even slightly less money.

We've got:

- 9.8 x 2 both working great for 4+ years.

- One Up no issues for 1 year.

- Bike Yoke no issues for 1 year.

I put a PNW dropper on a friend's bike and it's been working well for ~ 6 months.

I'd buy any of these droppers again.

easy peazy 

I just went with the new One Up lever, it’s solid and pivots on a bearing similar to the PNW loan lever. IMO the lever is probably the  part that requires more thought as it’s a contact point so how it feels to you may be something worth considering. I find the thumb pad on the OneUp to bra decent size and at a good angle for me. YMMV

PNW and One-up both look great, and good prices. PNW is even giving a discount at the moment.

Thx for the info.

OneUp.

I am also 2 years into an X-Fusion Manic that has been flawless.

If you have coin to spend, get the Bike Yoke Revive.

If you're on a budget, get the OneUp dropper V2.

If you can live with 200mm of drop get the Bike Yoke. It's like a fine swiss watch. Silent and moves really well, user-serviceable - definitely the best post I've ever owned by a huge margin, but max drop is 185. The new Reverb with the updated remote is an improvement over previous versions - bonus for huge range of lengths (up to 200) and sizes (including 34.9). The OneUp is clanky and kind of cheap feeling but it costs less.

Pnw is the answer. Same price as one up, way better action.
