My lovely wife informed me today that she was planning on getting me a gravity dropper for Christmas. I have had a classic in the past and unfortunately sold it when a bike came with a Mav Speedball...(stupid). I want a 5 inch post and I have a 2010 Transition Covert with 31.6 mm post. If I am not mistaken the GD Turbo 5" only comes in the 30.9 size and I don't believe they make a shim to fit a 31.6. I do like the low maintenance and simplicity of the GD, and also I like the idea of a set 1" drop for tech riding...but looks are not the greatest not that it really matters.
Then there is the Reverb. Price is close to the same, and it is infinitely adjustable. But I guess reliability is still unknown. I am a fan of RS and would like to try this product, but I sure do like the ability to work on the GD and just replace a few shims if it develops play over time. Will developing play even be an issue with the Reverb? I guess if I can't get a 5" GD to work with my seatpost size then my question will be answered anyways!
Sorry for the long post, just want to make sure I make the right decision...lotta $$$$
