Long-term view of the Line Dropper post

I just read what I wrote back on the 29th of March. And it still seems a bit slow to come up. If it has been in the fully down position for quite some time, then it sometimes takes a nudge to make it come up at all. Aside from that, I have no real complaints.
The bike can be picked up with the saddle in the down position - it locks completely.
The nose of the saddle has a couple of millimetres of freeplay side to side - that was there on the first ride and hasn’t increased at all.
It doesn’t make any odd noises - in fact it could use a bit more top out noise to indicate to the rider that it has reached the top. Sometimes I have to check.
I tried to shorten the cable, because it is too long. But in doing so I discovered that it is really about as short as it can be and still pull out of the frame. I could make it shorter, but then I’d have to remove the lever from the bars to remove the post from the frame. I don’t feel prepared for such a fussy step. That’s not so much a Bontrager issue as a “stealth” post issue.
I still think a 180mm travel post would be better for the steeper terrain. I have put a lot of wear on the sides of the saddle from rubbing against it with my shorts and that is at least in part due to the height of the saddle.

If I were going to make it perfect then it would pop up about twice as fast and make a nice, quiet “thwack” noise as it topped out. Otherwise it is to my liking.

Meanwhile I installed a new Stealth MMX Reverb (the latest iteration with a left shift lever instead of a push-button control) inside a Superfly recently. It was much harder than it needed to be thanks to the slightly tiny hole in the frame for the hose to pop out of near the head tube. It would have been much easier if the Connectamajig fit through the cable port - but it didn’t so I had to remove the lever from the hose, feed it through, and reconnect the lever. Finally I bled it with the new Bleeding Edge connector and process. It is slightly easier and quicker than the process for the older Reverb post.
This is an amazing step up for the Reverb. Especially if you use SRAM one-by drivetrains and brakes because it can bolt directly to the brake lever clamp. In the case of this bike, it attached to the “like an old Reverb” push-button remote for the fork/shock lockout (RockShox suspension can hydraulically lockout too). Just like a shift lever. It is also just the same size and shape as an XO1/XX1 shift lever. Perfect match.
This is likely my new favourite dropper post. If the B1 revision proves to actually be more reliable than the A2 it replaces then it is definite.

The playing field keeps changing.
