OneUp Components Announces New Chainrings, Thru-Axles, & Large-Diameter Dropper Post
@Timo82: I am sorry to hear you had a problem with your REVIVE. What exactly do you mean when you say it "sagged" and it became "loose". Really curious about this one. Also, we do offer worldwide free shipping for orders over 20€. If you stay below 20€, then shipping is 5€ flat-rate to any country. I am not, sure, but I think, I would not consider this expensive

@jclnv: Right. I believe, currently our REVIVE MAx is the only one which has a 34.9 specific design. Most other posts which are available in 34.9 lack the bigger upper tube, which - in my opinion - is the main reason to go for 34.9 in the first place.

Round Up: 10 Little-Known German Manufacturers Making Exciting Stuff
@nowherenear: I don´t think I should comment on other companies' suppliers. I can, however, assure you, that from this list, not only Intend and Newmen source parts from Taiwan, but also others. Actually, it does not really matter, from which country on this planet you source the parts from. Sure, some people like stuff "Made in Germany, USA, Italy, ...), but does it really matter? To me it does not matter. I know I produce my stuff together with friends, in our own facilities. I would not say, that my Taiwanese friends are any less worth to me than my friends in Germany. So why not product in Taiwan with my friends there? Producing our products in Germany would just not work for me. At least not efficiently enough to be able to feed 9 people at Bikeyoke. There is nothing bad with sourcing from Taiwan or Asia. However, it sure does matter from who (means from what kind of company) you source the parts from. Not too long ago, I got very upset at one of the company's owners (who's company also sources from Asia), when he openly wrote about "Taiwanese people" doing shitty jobs for us rich "western" people. and how he critizised companies who were producing in Taiwan. That was very offending to read and I indeed got really mad about how short-sighted and undifferentiated this was to write out publicly. It is completely up to you, who you are choosing to make business with. It does not matter, where this person comes from, or whether this person is "white", or "black" or "yellow" or from Asia or Europe, or Africa, Amercia, wherever... It depends on how the company works and how they treat employees, environment and last but not pleast how is the quality and pricing. You can not say, that people from Asia generally are just working hardly in dirty sweatshops and earn little money. Many of the companies I´ve visited are proud of what they are doing, wearing shirts and caps and shorts of their customers with pride and love what they are doing. Of course you can also find negative examples. But it is still up to you as a company owner, who you are working with. It's your decision, and no one else's.

Round Up: 10 Little-Known German Manufacturers Making Exciting Stuff
@JohSch : We do not produce our stuff in Germany, that is correct. I´ve lived inTaiwan for several years, and we've built up our own production line in Taiwan. So every post and every sadlle - every product - is assembled in our own facilities from our own team.So, I exaclty know, who to blame, if something got messed up. ;-) Depending on ow you define as manufactured "in-house in German", some of the other brands would rightfully have to not be on this list either. But I think, this is not what counts. All of these brands stand for small companies with great spirit and great products, which stand out compared to stuff from the well known "big players".

RockShox's Updated Reverb Stealth Gets the Squishy Post-Fixing Vent Valve
@bonkywonky: That´s not what I am saying. I am also not saying, that they definitely screwed us over. This is all speculation, because I do not know the internals, yet. I am also not saying, that they are refusing to pay their debts. I just didn´t get replies for months on my e-mails. The thing, that I want to say most and foremost is, that I am disappointed on a personal level.

RockShox's Updated Reverb Stealth Gets the Squishy Post-Fixing Vent Valve
@LuvAZ: Thank you very much for the kind words. We do appreciate all your guys´s support. One interesting side note maybe: A bit over two years ago, SRAM contacted us regarding our REVIVE function an showed interest in licenscing or cooperation. But obviously the needed posts for testing. We agreed to provide ten REVIVE dropper posts, that were supposed to be free of charge, unless (or until) we would not come to a cooperation. The talk ended about (maybe even over) a year ago and the posts hav not been paid until today. I don't know the exact internals of their new Reverb, so I am not claiming anythig here, but reading about all their new "innovations" leaves me with disappointment on personal level, because we´ve been talking with some of the top persons in SRAM. Hey, I guess that´s business. Maybe we are not "business" enough... But actually: We don´t want to be. We want to be, who we are and make our own stuff and innovate our own ideas and try to see and make people happy with our own little stuff. For us business is not just numbers...

Video: RockShox's Wireless Reverb AXS Dropper Post Explained
@fastedjones: Not quite correct. Or REVIVEs are doig pretty well, but honestly, if you are THAT ONE PERSON out of 100, you will still get a problem. Although this (1%) is a riduculously good failure rate for a dropper post, I am still not happy with it. We´re still trying improving our stuff every single day. Every single customer having a problem with one of our products is one customer too much.
