    Reverb developing slackness!

    My Reverb seatpost, after 2 years of use (and abuse), has developed some "slackness". The inner tube moves back-and-forth by a millimeter or two (the outer tube is totally firm within the bike frame). This translates into a much larger movement at seat level, which is (1) very disagreeable and (2) makes me worry that a more disabling failure may be looming.

    Does anybody know of this problem? Will I need to buy a new Reverb, or is the issue fixable? Many thanks in advance for any help and advice!

    Check to see if that assembly with the seals and O ring at the bottom of the stanchion is loose.

    Would this be covered under warranty?

    Thanks. I guess I should follow these directions: RockShox Reverb seatpost service guide - YouTube - it looks doable but pretty much at the high-end of my skills...

    One more question. I have read somewhere that if one takes out all the air from the Reverb, one cannot pump it back and one needs to send it in. Is there any truth to that? It would be a real bummer...

    I've heard similar things, but I don't know for sure.
