No matter what type of bike product your buying, from the simple accessories through to the full setup of your custom built road bike, there are lots of important considerations that you should take into account, especially when you’re shopping online and unable to test the product first. This is especially true when you’re buying products like Seatposts.

Our aim is simple, help you get the very best products for your budget. Whether that’s RockShox Reverb Dropper Seatpost or an alternative, we’ll do our best to find you unbiased, genuine customer reviews to help you make your decision. We’ve found 188 different products in the Seatposts category at Chain Reaction Cycles and we’ve also managed to find 92 products from RockShox (although only 6 of the 92 are in the Seatposts category).

Our first piece of advice is for you to spend some time really getting to know what it is you’re looking for. An important feature for one person might be totally pointless and irrelevant to you, so get a good idea of what you want and need from your Seatposts. Note down this list of key features that your product must have, that way when you’re comparing alternatives you have a starting point to decide whether one product meets your needs or not.

Price is the next and probably one of the most important factors of a purchase, so it’s really worthwhile spending a bit of time analysing the price of RockShox Reverb Dropper Seatpost and seeing how it stacks up against those offered by different brands or even other alternatives from RockShox. Below we’re going to get into the detail of RockShox Reverb Dropper Seatpost to help you see how the prices stack up.

We start this price analysis by looking at the price you can expect to pay for Seatposts. There are 188 different products available at Chain Reaction Cycles, and of those 188, the average price is £90.60. There’s quite a variance in price in this category too with the lowest priced product we found at £3.46 and most expensive was £620.

The next stage we went on to, was to look at the price of products from the brand: RockShox. The average price was £457.95 and we found that the price varies right from as little as £9.99 up to £1516.49 with RockShox products.

And finally we thought it would be good to give you an idea of RockShox products that appear specifically in the Seatposts category. So you can see that the price of RockShox Reverb Dropper Seatpost at £159.99 is great value considering the average price of RockShox Seatposts is £220.23 and the price varies from £34.00.

It’s also worth bearing in mind that we managed to find RockShox Reverb Dropper Seatpost during our price scan of several cycle retailers, for the amazing price of £159.99 which represents a £109.00 or 41% saving against RRP. If you think RockShox Reverb Dropper Seatpost ticks all of your boxes in terms of quality and features then it’s more than likely going to be a winner bearing in mind the price.
