    German dropper post

    I remember a few months back a MTBR member posted up some info about a really promising looking dropper post that was made in Germany (I believe). I can not seem to find the info now as I dont recall the company name.

    Anyone remember?

    I am looking for a 150mm post that is actuated at the lower collar (not the head like the reverbs and thomsons)

    Do want hydraulic controlled, but doesnt have to be actuated with hydraulics.

    Pretty sure this German one had all the checks.

    Need another post as my LEV shat the bed and am gonna make it the backup post.

    Looks nice. Too bad you need post shims for anything greater than a 30.9.

    Ya, looking closer at the site that is the one I heard about months back. It has the potential to be a real contender. I just need confirmation on:

    1. Is the height infiniely adjustable (like a reverb or ks) or does it have just an up position and a down position?

    2. Can the speed of the post (return) be adjusted?

    3. Is the handlebar control lever actuated with a cable (like KS) or hydraulic(like reverb)


    I think I know the answers, I just want final confirmation before sending em some money.

    It is an impressive website for the product, a lot of information provided. Apparently it is impossible for it to be contaminated by water or dirt. I'm eventually going to try a GD Turbo, but this post may get added to the list.

    Droppers being droppers, I'd add: what's customer service like, and can I get it fixed/replaced in a reasonable period of time?

    I am a believer in having spare parts available - so as long as I have 2 or 3 posts that meet the criterias I want I will be able to sub in a spare!

    It's cable actuated and it's not hydraulic controlled (it's mechanical, something like the Gravity Dropper), so it isn't infinitely adjustable but has some fixed position (up, down and a couple more between them). It has an air spring so it should be adjustable in return speed.

    Bummer about the non-infinite adjustable. If this is the case looks like I will get a second LEV as my backup.

    The Moveloc and Rase's new Rase 8 are on my short list.
    Old enough to know better, too old to give a F$cK

    Still doesn't look like it's available in USA. I can't even get to their online store.
