    This is the best upgrade I have made to my. I wish I would have done this a few years back.

    Pros
    Works perfectly every time.

    Cons
    Expensive in comparison.
    Hard to find a shop that works on them.
    Expensive upgrades.

    Its been great so far. It moves a little slow in the cold weather but that's probably more due to the fluid than anything. There is a little play in the post but I never notice it on the ride.

    Pros
    Internal cable routing, strength

    Cons
    price

    Despite flack reported by others, I would have to recommend the Reverb as I've had no issues yet.

    Pros
    Been on the Reverb for about 8 months and no issues. Not as snappy as I'd like, but not such a significant issue that I'd replace as it came with the bike. If you're in the Portland area, Hi-5 bikes does a 24 hour rebuild on the Reverb!

    Cons
    Not crazy about the trigger. Like the actuation on the KS better.

    I have only ridden a handful of other droppers, but to me the Reverb is still the gold standard.

    Pros
    I've had mine for over three years of heavy use in a variety of conditions. During that time I only had to bleed it once.

    After three years, it needed a full rebuild though. However, I was very impressed with the durability and performance overall.

    Cons
    It's hard to find someone to work on it! There are a shit ton of tiny parts inside the Reverb and rebuilding one is an extremely involved process. I couldn't get a local shop to touch it. I even hit up PUSH Industries, and they said send it to SRAM.

    If you have have never used a dropper post it is a great investment to add to a bike. Big bang for your buck

    Pros
    Very nice benefit to a bike
    Super easy to use on trail

    Cons
    Will sometimes stick slightly
    200-300 bucks can be a bit much
    be aware how much travel and distance into the stem you need

    very smooth. Solid no rattles. I have beat on this thing pretty hard this last month and its as firm and smooth as day 1.

    Pros
    Easy to install. Solid. It drops duh.

    Cons
    Price and weight but I knew that going in.

    The Reverb works best with a fresh bleed, but fades quicker than I would like. I have a Thompson dropper on my second bike. In 2 months of use and (mostly) abuse, it has given me more consistent operation.

    With that said, I'd rather have the Reverb on my bike than a standard seat post w/ quick release clamp. Dropping from XC pedal height to descending height on the fly is AMAZING!

    Pros
    It is a dropper seat post!, infinitely adjustable

    Cons
    Requires somewhat frequent maintenance to keep it working smooth

    Even though you have to pull up the post every time I mount it into a bike stand, that is OK. Had it on about 8 rides already and it works great. Much safer to ride and less likely to go over when leaning back. Locks in place anywhere you want it. Rebounds fast. I would not ride without it now.

    Pros
    Easy set up, butter smooth.

    Cons
    Cost, weight.

    I just got my Reverb after i used a KindShock i950 for the past year. Comparing them is unbelievable... I love my kindshock but man is the reverb unbelievable. My kindshock always seemed to get stuck about half way when i wanted it to come back up. The reverb has no problem. With the PSI set it quickly raises all the way by the push of a button. It stops at any level which is one of its best features. The seat clamp is one of the best i deal with, and is super easy to adjust with a hex wrench.
    in any event this is a super reliable seat post that mechanical adjustable seat post can rival!

    Pros
    no stick
    locks in place
    infinite seat range
    easy push button

    Cons
    heavy and expensive but its worth it!
    bleed when necessary.

    Riding in new england is full of quick ups and down so I drop and raise the seat constantly during my rides. I can't compare this to other dropper posts since i have not used them but I liken this category of components to when I first used disc brakes and shocks. It quite simply changes the way I ride and I can now attack downhills with much more control and confidence without breaking my flow.

    Pros
    infinite adjustment range, Simple to set up, bleed and add fluid to, good seat clamp, slick push button control, smooth motion on post.

    Cons
    Nothing. I accept the weight and cost penalties the same way I did when I first bought a fork shock or disc brakes

    After getting the wind knocked out from me when I didn't adjust my seat going downhill, my next upgrade was the seat post. I've ridden about 5 times now and I REALLY like it. At full extension, I feel like I have my legs fully extended. I lower it about an inch when cruising too so that I can reach the ground without getting out of the seat. Next upgrade is my semi-uncomfortable seat.

    Pros
    Quick setup out of the box, clean remote, 125 mm of adjustment (~5"), adjustable rise speed!

    Cons
    Slightly heavy but expected. Not cheap but got mine on sale!

    I have realy loved this post. Great additiion to any Mountasin bike. gets the seat out of the way with the push of a button so that you can stay centered on your bike on the downhills.

    Pros
    easy to set up and use. great adjustment settings. clean handlebar remote, especially with the Match maker. All hydraulic action gives you the ability to adjust the s[peed of the rise and the height setting anywhere within the 1255 mm capabilities.

    Cons
    Heavy, $$$$
