    ICE V8 Dropper Post (not locking)

    Anyone have one and have you had problems with it locking into position. Fitted mine last night and ended up taking it back off before I've even used it. Doesn't lock solid in any position so soon as you sit on the saddle it drops.

    Looking at the locking pin, it seems like the spring is not strong enough so you can over power it even when it does look. The other issue is, I don't think the pin protrudes into the post enough.
    The cable adjustment doesn't seem to help, as all it does is make the lever sloppy on the mount.

    I've read really good reviews about this post as well and thought it it might be me. I'm not exactly stupid when it comes to mechanical work as I am an engineer in electro-mechanical maintenance.

    Update. Took it back and got a replacement. Fitted it earlier and it works really well. Very positive action and didn't require any cable adjustment to get it working properly.
