    Adjustable Seatpost Remote Help!!

    Does anyone know where you can find a remote lever for an adjustable seatpost. I've tried looking everywhere online but all I can find is the entire remote kit, not the lever alone. Right now I'm running a cheapie friction shift lever, and it works but I would prefer an ODI lock-on system.

    Any help/info is greatly appreciated.

    It is a Kindshock i900. I don't care if the remote is Kindshock or not, I preferably would like the ODI mount.

    I think the KS remote lever clamp is ODI compatible.

    Right it is, but the problem is finding a place to buy just the lever and not the whole kit.

    Why not just get the remote kit? Is it the added cost?

    If you're going to take the advice about getting new wheels and tires, save up and get a good wheel set. Depending on how heavy you are, you can get into a 1700g set for about $400. For $600, you can probably get down lower. Wheel sets are portable and you can move them to a new bike down the line. Even $2500 bikes come with lower end, typically heavy wheels.

    You can probably drop 2 or 3 pounds by upgrading the tires and tubes alone.

    But, in the long run, just ride your bike and save for a new one. Upgrading major parts is like seeing those guys in an old beat up hunk of crap car with a set of $2500 wheels/tires. Just not a good appropriation of limited resources.

    I was going to suggest the Crank Bros remote:
    joplin remote kit - small part kits - components

    Just a simple lever that pulls on a cable.

    Not sure about the ODI compatibility but for what it's worth, I use Sram shifters and this lever stays out of the way. I have it positioned so that the lever is close to the shifter triggers; everything is perfectly in reach.

    Part of it is cost. Call me cheap, but to pay 70-80 for a kit that will "reinvent" the wheel seems like a waste. The joplin remote kit as a whole for 30 was what. Was looking to pay just for a lever, so if they are ever in stock again that might be a way to go.

    Is there any other remote release set ups that will work on a Joplin besides the less than attractive Crank Brothers kit? I currently have a lever actuated post. Sorry if this is a hijack?

    Don't know whether gravity dropper lever would work for you but you can buyt their parts separately, check out their web site, email them with questions.
