StarStarStarStarStar Very good post...But...

Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

The function of the post is great. The service from KS by all accounts is great. The LBS guys say I will be able to rebuild it myself. (although I have yet to see seal kits and internal manuals available so I am doubtful on this one. I have rebuilt several forks, but only because parts and instructions were readily available) And, comparatively, the price was great.

Cons

No cons that can be blamed on KS. I regret not spending a little more to get their model with the cable connection further down the post. But that is only to ease mounting the bike on a work stand. As it is, it is a real drunken dance to cut zip ties, shimmy the post out, replace it with a cheap steel post, and hang the dropper between the seat stays. And considering I also bought a $35 dollar Hope cable guide seat collar, I could have upgraded to the next KS post for only a little more. Something to think about.

Other Thoughts

If I had to do it again I would have bought the much cheaper eTen as a first post. With the intent of learning what I really wanted. The eTen does weigh half again as much.
However, the placement of the control cable up by the seat only causes problems when trying to clamp the bike to a work stand. It never bothers me on the trail.

StarStarStarStarStar Nice Post But No Setback

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Smooth operation
Infinite height adjustment
Good expected reliability

Cons

Zero setback will shorten your reach
Cable clamp a little finicky to adjust

Other Thoughts

Be aware that the seat clamp does not have the 2-3 cm setback most posts do, and this will change your riding position noticeably. I think I can live with it, but I wish I had realized this before I bought it.

StarStarStarStarStar One warranty repair, otherwise very good

by
Ownership: more than a year
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Price was very good compared to other brands. Direct fit for my bike with no shims. Reliable operation, except when control cable jammed up.

Cons

Had one problem within the first year that required return & rebuild (was not returning all the way up to fully extended position). Done at no cost, but took quite a while; longer than promised. Have had to clean out the control cable several times, but that's pretty much normal maint.

Other Thoughts

Would likely buy this brand again.

Kind Shock

Kind Shock is an industry leader in suspension and dropper seat posts.

See all Kind Shock

We define color as the main color of the item. It may have accents or highlights in other colors.

Weight

These models are available for online purchasing and can be shipped directly to you.

The seatpost diameter must match to the seat tube diamater of your frame. If replacing a seatpost, you can usually find this measurement etched near the bottom of your current post.

Seatpost length is measured in millimeters. It is typically measured from the bottom of the post to the center of the rail mount.

Offset is often referred to as setback. This is the distance in mm that the clamp is offset from the center of the seatpost.

Material

On a dropper post, this is the distance that the post will drop.

Dropper posts have the ability to change heights. This has become a choice for mountain bike riders that prefer multiple riding positions.

Clamp Style
