    Kind Shock LEV integra

    Hi all. Internal cable routing seems to be the trend on MTB frames these days as can be seen on the Transition covert, Yeti SB66 and some Specialized frames. I'll be getting the Carbon Covert when it comes out and would like to use KS LEV Integra on it. Anyone know where it is available? I can see some online stores selling the LEV but not the Integra variant.

    I don't think the KS Lev is available yet but I might be wrong.

    With that said, I don't get internal routing for MTBs at all. Sure it protects the cables/housing a little more but I never read of anybody considering this an issue. I can't remember which frame it was but I saw a frame once with internal brake lines, which has got to be the worst idea ever...
    Check out my SportTracks plugins for some training aid software.

    KS Lev

    Can't get one here in Canada right now so I just ordered one from Bike Bling. Found a nice coupon on-line and got $60 off.

    Although I didn't order the Integra.

    Cheers

    Ventana has an internal brake line.

    I'm also waiting for the Integra. Email to KS didn't get a response, so it's anybody's guess.

    With all of the failures that happen on adjustable seatposts, why would you want internal routing?
    Makes it that much more of a PITA to remove the gimp post when you need to sent it away for warranty.

    Actually, it's not a PITA. All you need to do is remove the lever and push the cable through high enough to release the post. You're gonna take that stuff off anyways if it's heading for warranty.

    Tried to get my lbs to order one for me and they couldn't find it so they called KS and were told that it hasn't been released yet.

    I wonder if KS would be offering a conversion kit for those that already bought a LEV like me. I hope they do..
