Vecnum Launches 212mm Dropper Post
@Unrealityshow: yeah that'd be my replacement choice for sure. And yes, my reverb will 100% break this season. And every season. Probably multiple times per season. What a shitbag post.

Vecnum Launches 212mm Dropper Post
@PhillipJ: yeah totally heard good things. But it's only 15mm more drop than my Reverb. If it were a 200mm version, I would have bought it long ago. I'd still have to run it ~55mm out of my frame to get it to the height that I am comfortable pedaling, and then still won't be able to drop it any lower.

Vecnum Launches 212mm Dropper Post
@aireeek: Dude i'm so jealous of 200mm drop. I've wanted to ditch this terrible Reverb forever so I never have to bleed the damn thing again...but can't justify the extra cash for the same amount of drop.

Vecnum Launches 212mm Dropper Post
Also I didn't realize the currency conversion. $650 canadian before taxes, shipping, duty, etc. And before lever. Adds up to the most expensive post on the market, I think?

Vecnum Launches 212mm Dropper Post
Also a tall rider here. My XL transition smuggler has an insertion depth of just 245mm, according to their website. My current 170mm Reverb sits out of the frame almost 70mm to get my saddle height to where I want. I can put it deeper into the frame, but then I can't get the saddle up high enough. When my saddle is dropped, it's not as low as I want. So I could def use a longer dropper. Right now the only thing that is longer is a 185mm drop BikeYoke and a 200mm 9point8. An extra 15mm isn't worth the price of the Bike Yoke, and unfortunately the 9point8 is too long and can't be inserted deep enough. Which means I couldn't run the actual 200mm, and it would still stick out of my frame 55mm. This Vecnum...sounds rad with 212mm of drop plus I can customize exactly how high it goes. BUT...the insertion length of this Vecnum is 317mm. Which means 72mm would be sticking out of my frame. Which is almost exactly what I have out of my frame right now with my reverb. Unless a company comes around and makes a 200mm+ dropper with a short insertion length, I think tall folks are out of luck.

Review: 1 Year on Cane Creek's Ultra-Light Titanium eeWings Crankset
Guys. Hold. The. Phone. Everyone is ragging on the price tag but Levy didn't mention an available upgrade which makes the price SO worth it. Forget the regular eeWings. Could I interest you in a set of eeWings...AND...a Stages power meter built in? Bargain price of $1999 CAD.

I agree with you, I don't see the appeal of these at all. Even if they were less than other aluminum cranksets, I think they look very odd and still wouldn't be looking to buy a set.
