    Yeah man. Because Apple products function so poorly. They definitely became the WORLD'S MOST VALUABLE COMPANY this year by producing good looking, poorly functioning products. Eveyone got duped.

    HAHAHA, ya. That's why as a business owner, I only buy mac computers. To look good. Certainly not b/c I don't want to deal with the headaches PC/windows machines provide

    That leaves ~7.15 inches of post.

    I would say it would be fair to guess that the mechanism takes up about 2" and the seat clamp takes up .75.

    That's pretty much what I measured.


    Thanks

    Dampening (vs damping) is correct in this case isn't it? It's reducing the force as it reaches the top of the stroke, not preventing oscillation.

    I think you're right about it being correct in this case. I have heard the phrase "dampen the blow", which I guess equates to "soften the impact".

    I'll be one of the early testers if someone can tell me where to buy this thing.

    Let's hope they got it closer this time vs the Joplin. I think CB bought a flawed design with that thing.

    I just looked at the video of the internals and how they work.

    I have a bit more confidence in the design simulating bar clamps. I would speculate the post would get a bit chewed up over time and use. We'll have to wait and see.

    The good thing is that if the air seal fails, you can just pull the post up manually and it will stay up for your ride out or whatever. Not ideal, but you are not stuck with your seat at half mast the rest of the ride

    I was thinking about the post getting chewed up too. Not sure how much it would matter as the seals to the piston is on the inner diameter of that post. Don't know what the clearances are to the outside of the post. Would need to see that to judge future issues.

    They are trying to sell it as "the eggbeater of the seatpost market"? And by that they mean shiny, prone to accidental disengagement and occasional catastrophic failure?

    If you put that on your Kona, you'll have a stinkylog.

    Has been mentioned,I to am hoping this will at some point be offered with some offset.

    I have a 2012 Reverb for the Honzo. The Stinky doesn't need one.

    I rode with someone on a Honzo last Sunday, so I had a chance to check it out- very nice

    Thank you for the above link euro

    So anybody actually seen an online vendor selling/pre-selling one of theses? I've searched all of the regular places I buy stuff and even done a general search. I guess they are still trying to fill the preorders but I'd love to get my name on the list somewhere. If not anybody think they be available early in April? Been saving up for a G. Dropper but I think I'll try one of these out because I really like the design and with a 2 year warranty if something is bad in the design that should give them time to resolve the issue. But right now it just looks like a myth. Bigfoot may be easier to find than even a mention of one of these for sale. If they don't show up soon I'll probably just go with a GD because if I don't get it soon the wife and kids will probably just end up taking my little stash of money.
