    150mm Reverb Stealth fit?

    I picked up a Reverb Stealth B1 on an impulse buy.

    Its a 440mm with a 150mm drop. Now I'm thinking that it may be too long. The Reverb collar will be pretty close to slammed on the seat collar. Right now I have an A2 external Reverb thats I think is 380mm in length thats a 125mm drop. My saddle height right now is ~69.4 from the middle of the BB to the top of my saddle. Will the 440mm with the hose fitting go past the hole for the dropper hose?

    Here is my saddle at full extension.

    Bike is a medium Spitfire.

    I ran into this issue, almost. Due to the way the Reverb Stealth hydraulic line attaches to the bottom of the post, there's about 50mm of line that cannot be bent. I got lucky, and with the seat at the correct height, there's no bend in that first 50mm. The hydraulic line has to exit the hole on the seat tube at a less than ideal angle, but it works. In a perfect world, the exit hole for the dropper line would be closer to the BB.

    I measured my Large Prime, and from saddle top to the exit hole on the seat tube it is 590mm. From saddle top to BB center is 770mm. It may be possible to route the hydraulic line through the bottom bracket shell, but it would likely be very difficult.

    So I measured the opening for the dropper to the top of the seat collar. Its about 282mm. Opening to the top of the saddle at full extension is 545mm.

    If it don't fit I still might be able to cancel...since they have not shipped yet.

    Get rid of the connectamajig and fit a normal barb. The connectamajig won't fit through the hole in the seat tube anyway.

    Anyway, Brand-X Ascend XL FTW. 99 atm in CRC. Fits a 2016 medium.

    I got mine to fit. I pulled the post after a few days and didn't notice any kinks or anything abnormal in the hydraulic hose.

    The stealth post does clean up the frame a bit.
