Okay, so I got my new Reverb post a couple of weeks back and just got around to fitting it up today, so I took a few piccies of the installation for a review. Here goes..
What's in the box?
The seat post of course, a bleed kit, 3 neat little plastic couplers to attach the remote cable to existing brake lines, a cable guide for the seat tube, a short torx bolt for the Matchmaker mount, and 2 tiny rubber grommets (although I don't know what these are for).
Obligatory weight check (380mm post):
Fitting the post is staight forward as expected, with markings on the post to get your seat level.
Fitting the Match Maker (MMX) mount was a bit fiddly. I had to remove the shifter from it's bracket, then remove the brake and grip to slide the old bracket off. The hinged Reverb bracket takes it's place, and the shifter bolts to the reverb bracket with the short short screw supplied in the kit. This whole excercise was pretty fiddly because all of the bolts are quite close together, and the shifter covers one of the up.
Here is the finished result, all pretty neat:
There is oval shaped cable guide to fit onto the seat tube, and 3 plastic couplers to attach to your brake lines, these are a nice touch and make the cable 'behave' itself..
I've only ridden it up and down the street to test - and it rocks! I've always compromised on seat height, and probably ridden with my seat to low so I'm not way high for the rough stuff, I reckon this will sort that out.
