    very nice!
    How do you (she) like the D.O.S.S post compared to the Reverb? (or KS)

    Love them, only difference is with the DOSS you have 3 positions Climb / Trail / Decent (Fox's go to) The Reverb is infinite in positioning. But the 3 position work great for me, mainly because I'm either in Climb full up or trail / decent 3" drop.

    I love the reverbs smooth hydraulic but wish for internal routing on the cable.
    Not much riding now though, three weeks in Thailand. Waiting for waves..
