    There's oil in the post, and oil in the remote and hose. The two don't mix and serve different functions. The remote oil operates a valve in the post. The valve in the post lets post oil in and out of the post cylinder. How fast the post moves depends on how far the valve is open and the viscosity of the post oil. How far the valve opens is controlled by the displacement of the remote piston and speed control knob or screw. Viscous oil in the remote might slow how fast you can activate the remote, but not how fast the post moves once it is activated.

    That is why I didn't bother changing the hose oil. In hindsight, it only would have taken 5 more minutes and why not rule out hose oil flow, piston movement, restrictions that become extreme with thick oil, other unknowns?

If I have to have it extended, I'll probably have it upside down so I don't have to disconnect the hydraulic, but of course protect the loop coming up from the seat stay tube.
    Cheers Niels

    it is shipped extended from the factory so i suppose it should be left extended in travel

    I am done with reverbs. i don't have the tools and I don't want to pay to get them rebuilt. Any of you reverb rebuilding experts out here can pick these up for a steal.
