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.
