    I cant imagine youd have issues, what is the measurement between the center of your BB to top of saddle when fully extended?

    OK... from the top of the seatpost clamp to the bottom of the rail holder thingies... when fully extended (i have... er... had a GD post)... i am at about 215mm... from the top of the seatpost clamp i can slide a seatpost in about 220mm before it raeches the bottom...

    based on that, the math seems to work, but i was wondering if anyone was running one...

    I'm sure it's fine, if not check out KS950 the bottom half of the post is 199mm so you can insert the post all the way for max drop. I don't imagine the Reverb to be 30mm longer though.

    As a certified golf club ho and bicycle parts ho, I believe in "buy first, worry about details like fit later".

    Sounded like we went to the same school I was a golf Ho too, gave it up to two wheel on dirt

    I'm pretty sure one of our guys had it on his bike at the Sram event in Moab. Worked fine.

    thanks all! this is sort of an emergency replacement... my GD fell apart (the plate holding the pin came unglued ) and i had been considering the reverb anyway...

    so i ordered it... i guess i've become dependent on an OTF adjustable seatpost
