Review: BikeYoke 213mm Revive Max 2.0 Dropper Post
@dancingwithmyself: I personally don't want to make too big of a deal about it. I don't want to be hard on Matt. Mistakes happen. Anywhere. We also make mistakes. I am disappointed, yes. But reviews are voluntary and independent and we do not pay a cent for it, so I am happy to get a review in the first place. I do not have any claim on it to turn out the way I wish. The nipple incident and the exclusive European availability were sad to read, but I'll get over it. No hard feelings. Just disappointed, because it was discussed and explained before.

This feels so good to read. Thank you for everyone who recognizes and appreciates the effort we put into making the Revive. Thank you everyone in this thread! This means a lot to me and the team!

Review: BikeYoke 213mm Revive Max 2.0 Dropper Post
That's the way it is to be installed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lnNAMx64G0 or here, page 11 in the manual: https://www.bikeyoke.de/media/products/Manual_Revive_ENG.pdf and the remote end will then look like this: https://photos.app.goo.gl/N2EQAqZY5EuymmhV9 We had sent them the latest version of the Triggy Alpha with the small puch for the cable end, so that is also a new updated on the remotes.

Review: BikeYoke 213mm Revive Max 2.0 Dropper Post
@dancingwithmyself: Yeah, I am also a bit disappointed, especially because Matt asked me about this specific topic about a week ago and I explained it to him. I even gave a link to our installation video, which also can be found above. I mean it works the way he did it, but it's not the way it was intended and definitley leaves a cheap impression on our design, which is totally unneccessary. But I won't complain, I can't change it anyway. I generall try to not take any influence on review results or impressions. We want honest reviews and real life feedbakc for the readers. We also do not hand-pick products. We just take them off the shelves and send them out. Much in reviweing is subjective (feel, looks, ...), and that is perfectly fine for me. But if hard facts are not correct, I would like these corrected. It's a shame that those would then only be corrected after the review is way back down the road already. The deed is alread done and one who already read the article will likely not see the update (if it gets updated in the frist place) For example the thing with orders from Europe. All major markets are taken care of dedicated distributors for their countries. No need ot order from Germany. And we've had US distribution with BTI since 2016. Wrong travel review? Did I miss something?

Review: BikeYoke 213mm Revive Max 2.0 Dropper Post
Thank you, Pinkbike, for the review: A few kind of important things I found, I would like to correct, though and maybe they can be edited in the original review, because some of the points gave the review a negative touch.: 1. Pinkbike: „Any thinner and they found that the post began bending too much, another cause of stiction.“ Not quite correct, as this this would imply our standard REVIVE bends too much. We are a big fan of the 34.9 standard, that is true. And we did increase the upper diameter to 28mm for the reasons mentioned. But that does not mean the small er diameters bend too much. They do bend notiecable more and the MAX are much smoother, yes. 2. Pinkbike: „The price doesn't include the lever because there are three choices: regular, short, or the old school over the bar remote that will leave room for "Twin-Lock" lever configurations.“ We actually have four remote options: 2.1. The original Triggy 2.2. Triggy Alpha short (angle adjustable and ball bearing, short paddle) 2.3. Triggy Alpha long (angle adjustable and ball bearing, long paddle) 2.4. 2X remote for „twin lock“ or 2-by drivetrain applications 3. Pinkbike: „Despite the well laid out install directions, the housing must be cut perfectly to length because changing the housing length will require a new cable once the grub screw frays up the end.“ and „I prefer when the cable is pinched at the lever and not on the actuator. That usually allows for the cable to be reused, should you need to change the housing length.“ You slide the cable clamp onto the inner cable, then clamp it close tot he nipple and trim the nipple off. Then you have the open end for the front, just as we show it in our videos and in the manual. Not any different to any other other dropper out there regarding the ability to trim the housing afterwards. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lnNAMx64G0 https://www.bikeyoke.de/media/products/Manual_Revive_ENG.pdf 4. Pinkbike: „In terms of price, the Revive Max isn't the cheapest option and if you're purchasing one outside of Europe, you'll have to accept the fees associated with international shipping.“ Nope: We do have distributors all around the world who carry our products. Speaking of USA and Canada fro example, you can buy local or online at hundreds of dealers. You do not have to buy from us in Germany. In fact, the US is our biggest market, which is really cool and I am supper happy (and yes, a bit proud) of what we’ve achied with our little team so far. On a side note, I’d be interested, why Matt needed to „revive“ the post so many times. Usually you only need to reset, if you lay the bike down or hang it on the wall for a longer period of time, or if you actuate it, while it’s not upright. Other than that, frequently required resets are not common. The Quick Reset Lever is also something I am missing, because this does away with the need for a 4mm Allen key. Every aftermarket post (for OE it is an option) comes with this lever and this handy little piece can be attached to and left on the post at all times. A reset is then only the mattter of literally a second.

@Pennyrisk: LOL, I was surprised, too, when I first had the idea, and when I then searched and did not find anything, I just had to high-5 myself for a second.

@FR33DOMdotCOM: I have to disagree. Ours is not "premium" as opposed to Absolute Black's.

@barp: Yeah, it does the same thing. There is also one from Reverse Components called Steerer Clamp. I had to learn about the Problem Solver one yesterday in the Forums, and about the one from Reverese, when we introduced our parts to our dealers. Any of these basically serve the same prupose. I even called Peter of Reverse and let him knwo, that we are coming with a basically identical product and we did not know they had somethign similar already. I now imagine there are even other brands offering somehting similar.
