    Reverb AXS dropper. Has SRAM lied...

    Great post, functions very well but is expensive.

    Out of curiosity I measured the length of my claimed 170mm of drop and I only get 165mm! Given how expensive this thing is I feel slightly ripped off and coming off a 185mm dropper I'm feeling the loss of every mm

    If anyone else with this first world problem gets curious can you measure your drop and post it up?

    Seems like SRAM likes to exaggerate their "generousness".
    I wonder if they claim to have size 15 shoes too, since you know what they say about big shoes....


    My brother has a SID RL, 100mm travel, and even when depressurized, only moves 88mm, and that's with my 225 lb self slamming down on the bars as hard as I can.

    I'm curious why it would matter if the post is all the way slammed in the seat tube and the saddle is at an optimal height relative to your fit. Or are you saying your post could be inserted another 5mm if you had the extra travel?

    Honestly, regardless, I'd be pissed off too if my shit was out of spec.

    Forks aren't complicated. I'm willing to be that there is air stuck in the lowers, either from seal-head damage, or improper assembly after service.

    Apparently it's the Jounce bumper and the top out bumper that eat up that travel.
