    dropper post

    Rookie question but I have a reverb on my Bronson, will it damage the post if I hang the bike from it on the work stand?

    Don't know about the Reverb but have been doing that with my dropper post for years. Works fine.

    I have a 6 month old reverb and used to hang it from the seat. I noticed about a month ago that I had a little slop in the last 1-2inches of travel. Then, a little over a week ago, my post was stuck in the up position. It's now off to be serviced.

    The only thing I think could have caused this was either a faulty o-ring or from me hanging my seatpost in a mid travel position and putting a strain on the internals from this. I'll never know, but I won't hang it that way anymore.

    There is nothing wrong with simply loosening your seatpost collar and sliding the Reverb out to put it in the bike stand. Keep the quick release on the bike.

    If it's not the stealth, DON'T put it in the stand. While working on my buddy's fork, I put his in the stand. When I went to grab the bike later, I realized that there was an extra cable housing or something. It was the hose from the reverb. The tiny barb that holds the hose is mounted under the seat. It gradually slid down I guess and broke the tiny thing off. It changed my take of the reverb really quick! Fahn

    Use a Thule top tube adapter (for women's bike on the rack) and clamp it on that. It has some left right swing but beats having the bike fall off the stand and denting the top tube .

    Don't do this. You'll still be hanging your bike from the seat, not the seatpost.

    Just loosen the post and extend it enough to use the bike stand.

    This. Or clamp your bike by the frame if your frame allows it.
