I run the Reveb post.
Just transferred my old CB Joplin 3 from my RIP AM bike to my Jet XC bike. I have no problems with the Joplin although they don't have the best reputation.
I agree with muzzanic that they are a great investment on any bike that you ride down hills over rough terrain. So there is no reason (apart from being a weight weenie) to not put one on an XC bike.
Hmm another chance to post a pic of my Jet build.

Please note 140mm Reba has been sold and a shorter travel Reba XX fork in white on the way.
Also run a Reverb dropper on mine.
Only take it off if I was racing due to weight, then again I don't race . To be honest a would run a dropper even on a XC HT now & know people who do.
