No complaints. Great product!
Smooth and dependable. Great price here.
Instructions could be better.
Very good post...But...
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.
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.
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.

Nice Post But No Setback
Infinite height adjustment
Good expected reliability
Zero setback will shorten your reach
Cable clamp a little finicky to adjust
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.
One warranty repair, otherwise very good
Price was very good compared to other brands. Direct fit for my bike with no shims. Reliable operation, except when control cable jammed up.
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.
Would likely buy this brand again.
