    Reverb squishy at top

    I have bled my Reverb according to Pinkbike's instructions and it works great, except it settles down about 5-7mm when I sit on it after extending all the way. There shouldn't be air in the system. I also checked air pressure and it is exactly 250psi. Does this mean I have a problem internally that I should warranty? Any other ideas?

    You have a blown o-ring on the inner seal head. You can replace it yourself, or send it into sram if it is under warranty. I don't like waiting for sram so I'd opt to do it myself. Sram released really good videos last year on how to do an inner post bleed. It will show you the blown o-rings in those vids.

    Thx.

    Thx! Just sent back for warranty repair/replacement. It's only a few months old.
