Have one of these, the Brand-X dropper (cable operated) is 155, with only two rides on it.  It is not going all the way back up yet (3-5mm) but have oiled and it seems to want to.  Does with encouragement, but I've not tweaked any settings mind you.  I am sure it will once I use it enough and sort the cable routing.

Also have had two reverbs (external) and nothing bad to say about them.  Got first from CRC and second from merlin (cheapest at time).  Buy either but reverb if you have the dosh.

bike-comp... site is bang on if a little slow delivering.

Dermot, just a thought about your seat post... make sure the seat post clamp is not too tight? I had that issue before with my reverb.

To continue the "Which Dropper...?" saga... I'm now in the market (not the Yep Uptimizer market) for a dropper in the medium price bracket i.e. CRC have the Rock Shox Reverb Stealth @ 225.00.
All suggestions with pros/cons greatly appreciated.


Cheers

Steve
