    Reverb issue - help!

    I'm cross-posting this on the Norcal forum b/c everybody here is so knowledgeable and helpful (flattery will get you everywhere):

    I am really hoping somebody can help me out with this Reverb issue:

    I wrecked with the seat post in the fully dropped (lowered) position and broke the hose barb off the remote. I purchased and installed a replacement barb, and watched the bleed video on the Sram website (I have successfully performed a bleed before & it wasn't a big deal). The problem is that the instructions say to perform the bleed with the post in the fully extended position, but I cannot figure out how to get it back to the fully extended position. When I extend the post manually, it contracts right back to the contracted position.

    Does anybody know how to get it to the extended position?

    Thanks in advanced!

    This might be worth a try. Take off saddle and rail clamps. Then depress the poppet valve in the top of the post. Little silver button down in there a few mm. I have not tried it but was told it works. Let us know

    Great advice Vaughn! - followed your instructions and it worked perfectly - I'm back in business with my Reverb working better than before my wreck + $7 fix - already had the fluid & you can get replacement barb on Amazon

    Also, i would use the Tech tuesday instructions on how to bleed a reverb from Pinkbike.com.
