    BikeYoke Revive Droppost

    The horror!!!!!!!! I installed a drop post on my ultra-light Ibis HD3 it is no longer Ibis HD3 Final Configuration: 23.3 pounds

    But at least the BikeYoke Revolve is a

    • Work of art
    • Works more than Great
    • And it is quite light

    Below are the weights for the 125 x 31.6, with titanium bolts and barrels (wonderfully executed with TORX T25 drive), the I-spec II mount and the ... horribly heavy cable. Total is 475+22+8+60-12 (cut housing and cable) = 553. Not too bad although a 300 grams gain in respect to the Race Face NEXT carbon post ... but the bike does ride so much easier on the downhills ...

    This is what I had for the 125mm version, pretty normal for droppers of this size actually, not excessively light IMO (or heavy), my Specialized Blacklite was about the same weight (but it failed).

    The Revive is a great post though, this thing has been great. I've done a bunch of long races on this thing, on Saturday I did a 100 mile race. Never let me down. I did just grease the mechanism at the bottom of the post a few min ago, but I've been on this thing all season and it's flown with me to several places across the US, great post.

    Yeah, it puts my bike in the 23s, but it's very much worth it IMO.

    You are right, weight is about average. Do you also have the 31.6?

    This post pushed my Scott 700 from the 24's to the 25's, but now that I've had it a couple of weeks, no looking back. Love it!

    Check out the KS Lev Ci (carbon Fiber). I just installed the 175mm version on my enduro bike and replaced my 150mm B1 reverb and saved a cool 1/3#. Whatever that is in metric numbers.

    It's also a far superior post in the way it works.

    One 150mm 30.9 Reverb B1 for sale btw.

    Far superior to the Revive? Heh, I don't think so. When you get on a Revive, it feels like the other posts are filled with peanut butter.

    Sorry, far superior to my previous Reverb. I understand the revive post is an exceptional post.
