Constant (monthly rebuilds) of the V1 post in the last year has got me thinking I’m crazy. I am admittedly a bit of a OneUp fan boy, but only because of the service, and the quality of the products I have from them (too many)
I finally reached out to OneUp for warranty/help with this god-damn V1 sticky post.
There answer was that I replace the top bushing, thats an impossible find right now, they are sending some out, so thats decent of them.
I decided to break out the little Dremel tool and do some work on the current one, and with an ultra fine stone, honed the leading edge, both inside and outside of the bushing. VOILA! Works better than ever before (for now)
I can only assume that on repeated disassembly that the bushing pinches slightly at the bottom, and puts additional stress on the moving upper? Anyway, it was already dickered, I didn’t think I could dicker it any more.
It does have me looking at a PNW post, along with that lifetime warranty...thats worth 10mm of extra insertion in my books
