I have a reverb too- love it and it really helps your riding. If you were going to buy second hand the newer version was much better rated in all the reviews.

I have had the silver collared one and it has had the odd issue. A service from Tf tuned is holding out though.

If you can go for the reverb stealth, you will have to drill a small hole for the hose at the bottom of the frame somewhere but it'll be worth it. It doesn't even look like a dropper.

Yeah if its going under the bar pick the opposite.

length wise i would measure your normal "seat up" position to the seat post clamp/qr collar and then order a reverb that allows you to match the minimum insertion and extension.

When fully dropped, I have to pull the hose through toward the bars else the suspension sag rubs the back wheel on the hose. You may also want to change out the actuator valve connection as the stock connector broke on mine and is a little flimsy. Goodridge do a range of coloured connectors. And as Andy points out, get the opposite button for the side you want so you can mount the button under the bar. They are bloody handy on trails though, more important than gears over a short distance!

All the more reason to go for the stealth version!

Yep, given what I know now, I would have gone for the Stealth option
