    I don't understand!

    II have read for months that anything besides an Gravity Dropper
    are going toto have tons of issues. IE :rebuilding before ever riding it, breaking
    on mid ride, warranty, etc.
    I can't figure out why you all are interested in being guinea pigs?????
    Is it not going to happen to you? Is your idea of fun purchasing a new item
    and having to fix it to get it to work correctly???
    PleasePlease clue me in!

    TIA
    Meth

    While your wording has elements of troll, I will feed on the off chance you are serious.

    Don't paint all with the same brush.
    GD has had its issues over the years as well - the good side is their CS can't be beat.

    Having said that, I have two alternate adjustable posts and have had no issues with either (other than normal maintenance ).

    I have an early production AMP that has been solid for years.
    I also have a RS Reverb that is also solid, with no issues.
    ...and no I did not even have to bleed it.

    Guess i will have to tell my two buddies with broken/ not working right GD's that they are not broken cause they are bestest and buying anything else is dumb. While i keep using my KS with no issues, or my command post as well. Hopefully my post was as stupid as yours when people read it.

    If people want to try out a relatively new product, let them. Without people who take those risks, technological progress is nonexistent. Sheesh.

    Gravity dropper has been around for a long time now, it has done very little impact in their first few years. Maverick came along and created competition, with different design. It stirred up a lot of interest and attraction.

    Now, there are a bunch more to choose from. Guinea pigs hardly

    How's your Square tapered BB, 8spd, thumb shiter, and coaster braking for you so far.

    BTW, adjustable seatpost GD or not, is not for everyone. If you can't look pass the benefits of lower saddle position, you can't own one. If you only going to ride up to the top fully extended, then drop the saddle for the descend, just get the adj clamp for your seat post, and save the money. If you plan to raise it up and drop it many times in a ride, then it worth the money.
