BikeYoke REVIVE 160 dropper postA new player in the dropper post game...

BikeYoke is a company located in Munich, Germany. They've created a completely new design of dropper posts, the BikeYoke REVIVE 160 dropper seatpost. The hydraulic circuit is a very stable closed system and basically maintenance free.


  1. No external air will go inside the post's hydraulic circuit, since it is charged with a higher pressure than its surroundings.
  2. No oil will go out (or at least very very little oil over the course of a long time), because of very stable sealing.
  3. The hydraulic system can be reset to “new” via the unique “REVIVE-valving” system.

We have the REVIVE 160 - 31.6 in stock. MSRP is $397.50.

Ryders Eyewear at The Path Bike ShopDurable glasses, just in time for summer and all your outdoor pursuits.

All of Ryders Eyewear come with a 3-year warranty and 50% discount for a crash replacement. Options for Standard or antiFOG lenses with various models.

Short story about the durability of these glasses... shop owner Tani and Geoff were fishing, and Tani had set his Ryder glasses down on a rock. Soon thereafter, Geoff slipped and landed palm first on the glasses...thought they had to be beyond destroyed, but that wasn't the case. They completely held their shape, and aside from a few scratches they are good to go! They have also been stepped on, and again have kept their shape and have not broken.

Prices range between $39-$89 depending on the model and lenses.
