    i was quite opposed to this, mainly the lever, but it is growing on me. if reliability proves good i may give it a go.

    Maybe you're right, but what other reason to drop the price other than its not selling as well as expected?

    maybe the high price was to create hype? common marketing tactic. when it didn't take of like fox wanted they lowered the price.

    Hehe, maybe fox knew that they are so notorious for useless seals that they went mechanical to avoid it.

    It's better to drop the price and make less profit than have none sell and make a loss.

    Friend has one and has been a maintenance disaster! seals and has a tendency to go down on it's own any given time.went back to a Reverb much more dependable and is a better product.I run a Reverb too works perfectly and use it daily!

    I looked at these. Couldn't figure out why it costs so much though? I'm confused why any adjustable seatpost costs over 200$. I bought the Giant contact switch and its been totally reliable and does the same thing all the other posts do but for half the price.

    If you swap your front shifter to grip shift you can run the lever under the bar. It's much more comfortable.

    Has anyone tried this post with a different lever? Would like to try one but only if I can put a smaller lever on the bike.

    I tried an Epicon (suntour) fork remote but it's a no go. the throw on the suntour remote is too short and i can only go down to the TRAIL setting. would like to get my hands on remotes from KS and DNM to try em out.

    I am going to run the DOSS on my Yeti 575 build (it will fit in with the other Fox components I am putting on).

    I'm hoping someone who owns a DOSS can give me a measurement. What I'm looking for is typically called the "insertion length" (yeah ha-ha) measured from top or bottom of collar to bottom of (black) inserted end....I realize there is an air valve too but don't think this would be an issue. Also not sure if the 125mm and 100mm will have a different measurement but would likely get a 100mm version. Thanks

    these look like they have a lot of potential for problems but cool product. I would like to have one of these one day.

    I'm thinking to get this fox doss or reverb 2013. So you have any problems if you use it in extreme weather conditions such as heavy rain or if its covered with mud, does it affect the reliability and durability?

    Also how long is the cable the comes with it and why did you use the jagwire instead of the stock wire that comes with this fox doss?

    I've had one for close to a year now. It saw a ton of mud use last winter with no ill effects. The cable that came with mine was plenty long enough for both my medium AM and DH bikes (I switch it between bikes).

    my Fox DOSS arrive this morning. It took me 1.5 hrs to install, because I had difficulties internally route the cable inside my frame, but the actual installation of remote, cable, seatpost took only 15 mins.

    This seatpost is superb I really like the quality and I guess the durability. The only problem the return is too fast even though I pump 10psi only. I might reduce further once I use it on the trail .

    This seatpost is better than Rock Shox reverb.

    Anybody know about maintaining these. I have two of them, and with the weather change I had to add air to them to get them to rise all the way up. Not a problem, but when I let a little air out a bunch of dirty liquid came out too.

    Is this oil? Does it need to be changed? I don't use water to clean my bike, so I'm not sure what it is. BTW, Six months on each and love them, best seatpost I have had.
