    KindShock Sticking, not returning etc

    Having trouble getting my i900 to return fully. It requires an extra tug to get the last inch or so of extension sometimes. Also, when i compress the seat posts, I can sometimes hear air escaping somewhere. Is this normal? It's a new post. Haven't had more then say 20-30 miles on it...

    Is there some sort of lube the helps the post slide between the seals like triflow? Seems tat is part of the problem....

    Working correctly now.Few things...

    -Slickoleum / slick honey does wonders...

    -Depending on where the post is left sitting for an extended tim period seems to have an effect on it's behavior.

    UP - It somtimes will not stay down 100%. Squirts back up 1/2 an inch or so but FLIES back up on lever compression.

    Down - It will stay put on compression but will not return quite as fast and sometimes gets stuck if trying to extend from 1/2 compression or less.

    -A few cycles seems to mitigate and normalize the post to some degree.

    -I'm wearing some new pants today and they are mighty comfy
