Rockshox Reverb 2012 V's KS Dropzone with remote ???

Postby Mattlyleryder77 » Sun Jan 06, 2013 21:21 pm

Hi All

I'm in the market for a dropper post and have narrowed it down to two in my price range (£180 on offer) the Rockshox Reverb 2012 or a KS Dropzone remote, read good reports on both but would like to hear from anyone who have these posts to sway me as I'm undecided.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I have had both, though the KS was a 2010 model I think, I had issues with the KS sticking and also some scoring started to appear on the shaft, also,the collar kept coming loose, not sure if the new ones are better. I currently have the 2012 Reverb and have been running it for the last 6 months and it has performed faultlessly.
My biggest fear is that should I crash, burn and die, my Wife would sell my stuff based upon what I told her I paid for it.

Thanks Brindle scoops, think the 2012 KS are a bit more reliable than they use to be according to the write ups but still something to think about. Cheers.
