triggy-DeHy-mechanical-remote-lever-conversion-for-Reverb3

In June, Bike Yoke unveiled the Triggy, giving you a dropper post remote that looked and felt like the familiar shifter lever we’ve almost all removed from our left side. Now, they’ve made it (or most other remotes) compatible with the formerly hydraulic-only Rockshox Reverb with the new DeHy.

The DeHy replaces the hydraulic hose connection on the Reverb without replacing or affecting any of the internals. It then allows you to connect a standard brake cable to it and run that through standard housing up to the mechanical lever. Here’s why you might want to do such a thing…

The complete kit with Triggy and DeHy starts at €92.35 and goes up a little if you want a clamp with it. Without, you’d just use it on your existing I-Spec B or I-Spec II front shifter clamp. If you’ve already got a lever you like, the DeHy on its own is €62.99. As for the “why”, supposed you’re running the Reverb with non-SRAM brakes and can’t quite get the hydraulic thumb lever where you want it – after all, the Reverb’s lever is designed to mount cleanly only when paired with SRAM brakes’ mount). The DeHy gets around this ergonomic conundrum by letting you pair the Reverb with any mechanical lever you want.

But, if you prefer another dropper post, like the new Fox Transfer, the Triggy now has additional options that clamp the cable at the lever rather than the post, letting it work with virtually any post out there. And at €52.42 for just the lever, it’s a comparable option to buying the Transfer lever a la carte anyway.

To me this is like removing the engine of a plane and replacing it with a fan.

To me, this is like removing the fan on a plane & replacing it with an engine. Since getting a bike with a reverb, instead of a post that I can use a lever with, my ability to change my seat on the fly has suffered greatly. the reverb button is just extremely unergonomic, even if you’re pairing it with SRAM brakes.

Mount it upside down…

you need to invert left/right to do that though else the hoseis not properly routed. ie you need to buy the right reverb button to mount it upside down on the left.

when you get it stock you get left in most countries, so yeah, doesnt really work without extra expense (unless you’re ok with bad hose routing, which is kinda dangerous with trees and stuff..)

This trick has been around a while, I definitely would not put a left one upside down on the left though. Just requires a little fore-thought when making an aftermarket purchase.

Or I already have that, since Devinci was smart enough to spec a right hand remote on their single ring drivetrains. Guess what? still noticably worse than having a lever.

Great, not sure what your problem is then…

If buttons are so great, why don’t they make a shifter that works that way? Oh, right, because a pivoting movement has better ergonomics there than a button does. Which is why every other dropper on the market now offers a way to use a shifter style lever. My problem? talking to people who are unable to remember why we got rid of thumb shifters on the internet…

For that kind of money, wouldn’t one just sell the Reverb and get a cable actuated dropper post instead?

i agree the reverb lever is a pain. Been Putting up with it for two years as I love the post. Just bought one of these .

I hope they expand this concept and create other products. It would be great if I could add shifter cables to a Di2 bike. Maybe something like a bar end shifter that would allow the use of cables to control a Di2 system. That would be sweet!!

My solution would have a wireless switch that connects to a cellular network. This would activate a device in your garage that, coupled with weather data, would send another signal to a server room in North Carolina, which would be running a script that determines where you are and when you will need your post to go up/down. After determining your location and terrain, an automated phone call is made to the bike shop nearest you, which would dispatch an employee of the shop to your location, who would use a hex wrench to change the height of your post.

Collecting Kickstarter funds now…

What if I am out of cellular range? could I get the satellite option? Or how about the lower-tech smoke signal option?
I am so in on the campaign, as long as you offer the non-cellular option.
WAIT a second… land line. Have a phone cable on a reel that releases as you ride! That way, you always have coverage and you have a breadcrumb trail to get back when your Garmin 12987 XTS battery dies. The tag line should be “Dude, you got this wired”.

I for sure think the egonomics of the reverb, even mounted on/with the brake lever likes its suppossed to go SUCKS. It actually sucks more when you mount it with the brake lever because if you adjust the brake so the lever is at the perfect angle then the reverb button is at a poor angle. or visa versa…

Cool concept, but the reverbs big downfall is not the line or the button. I would much rather a shifter style remote over the stock option. However I would also like it if I didn’t have to service the awful internals every month or two.

I run Formula brakes since I got my Reverb about two years ago. I also have a right button mounted under the left side of the handlebar, a lot closer to my hand than the brake levers, and at a very different angle than the one a Matchmaker X compatible brake lever would allow. This gives me the ability to place each one right where I want It. Same goes for the 1×11 trigger and right hand brake lever.

Sometimes simplification goes against ergonomy.
