Rockshox Reverb dropper seat post

Rockshox Reverb dropper post

This version features:

  • 125mm drop;
  • 31.6mm diameter;
  • non-stealth remote connection.

Weight is 567g.

Tuning potential

  • seat clamp bolts weight 18g;
  • lower cradle weighs 24g;
  • top plate weighs 28g.

Bolts could be replaced with Ti versions (probably a 10g saving) and top plate and cradle could also be replaced with lighter items but radius on the top of post doesn't seem to match any of the cradles that I have spare.  Reality is that there is probably not a lot of weight to be saved at all, and quite some potential to reduce reliability.

Amazon sells a range of Reverbs in various drops (100mm and 125mm) as well as 30.9 and 31.6mm diameters.
