    Played with one today at the shop when the rep stopped by. Really nice and light. Action was smooth and the build seems solid. Can't wait to get one.

    My local shop is saying that their supplier won't have these until late summer.
    Anyone else had better luck?

    What are the advantages of this seatpost to regular ones? Does it act like a shock?

    It is adjustable on the fly, so you don't have to stop moving or get off the bike to put your seatpost down for downhill or up for climbs. The video francois posted above goes through it pretty well.

    So it handles clamping the inner shaft? Most seatposts should however survice WC DH unless you crash

    Can you lift the bike by the seat with the post at ANY position? Everywhere seems to be saying that you can only do that at the lowest position.

    Thanks for the video! Yea, my Joplin4 on my NomadC has failed again! CB emailed me saying they will be offering a trade in value for the Krono... My only concern now is the mechanism not ollowing one to drop the seat all the way down as I like my seat really low! How tall is the mechanism? The collar on the Joplin is only about 3/4!

    Minimum exposed seatpost height is high at 5 inches + 2 inches to allow the rider to get the full 5 inches of adjustability. As a workaround, the max height of the post can be reduced with internal shims.

    What frames have 30.0? This is highly off standard dimensions, but can be fixed using a shim

    It's not that uncommon... Older Norcos & Transitions used it among others.

    Does anyone know the minimum insertion length of the krnonlog, or rather what's is total usable height fully extended? If it's 100mm minimum insert that would leave about 305 left over to the seat rails at the longest safe height. Or is it less than that?

    One of my KS posts with a 4" drop can extend about 241mm from the collar, while the other with 5" drop is 266mm, and I'm guessing KS's 6" drop then would go 292mm

    If the krnonlog can go 305 that allow me a more of a range in frame sizes. I like a super high seat compared to the frame.

    Also, I've never quite understood post lengths. When they say 405mm that doesn't mean it's 405mm plus the minimum insert right? It'd be much easier if they just listed posts with their total usable length. Unless I'm mistaken and that's what they already do?

    Worst "company" that I've EVER had the pleasure to deal with. It's just a couple of guys with parts in their closets and no real phone # to get a hold of them on. They don't have in stock what they have on their website. They also sell on FleaBay and their reviews are awful.

    Forewarned
