    Mine's going back to the supplier.

    Sick of the creaking and inconsistent performance.

    I've tried so many different cable tensions to fix the issue of it not dropping whilst out on the trail and nothing works.

    Pretty over it.

    I really don't know. It's my second post already.

    I just hope they have a quick turn around.

    I replaced my cable with a reg derailleur cable and it it no issue at all. I have about 10 rides on it and so far it has been flawless.

    I think I may have found one of the limitations of the LEV. I went out for a ride in 17F (-8C) last night and when I got on my bike in the parking lot, the post wouldn't stay put, it was moving up and down. After looking at it a bit, it seemed the actuation cable was stuck. So I wiggled it around a bit and the post locked in place in the "up" position. At least I could ride. After the ride, I brought my bike down to my basement, and this morning, no matter what I do, the post doesn't move. The lever actuation cable seems to be moving a bit, but I'm not sure what's going on. I'm going to bring it into the shop. I had an issue a while back with the little kevlar "string" inside the post coming undone (slipping), but my shop was able to reattach it properly. I'm wondering if the cold did something to that mechanism again, possibly making it frail and having it break.

    I'm ok with not having a dropper post in super cold conditions, and the post has been amazing since I installed it in august, under more normal conditions. This isn't a complaint, just an observation. I'll update once I've figured out what happened.

    Got my KS LEV 125mm a couple weeks ago and now have around 50 miles on it. So far so good. No issues at all and "it just works" to steal a line from Apple. I had a CB Kronolog and after having the same issue crop up on three separate posts, (slippage), was able to return it. For anybody interested, the KS LEV is smoother than the Kronolog (when it worked) and the remote is so much nicer.

    Keeping my fingers crossed and will chime in if any issues arise, but really hoping that this is the last time I post to this thread unless it is to answer a question.

    Oh, and for anybody that is still considering buying but want more information, there is a review of the LEV on VitalMTB.com. They used it for 4 months and posted a rather thorough review.

    That article pretty much sums up my 4 months of experience with the Lev, except for that fact that mine had a slight wobble in the head clamp from the very start.

    Thanks. It just a standard 90degree aluminium brake noodle and the stock cable housing which came with the LEV. It is fairly new and I have only done 7 hours of riding time on the LEV with active use under muddy conditions. No problem with it so far. A happy customer here

    good and bad

    I was given a ks lev for Christmas. I've managed about 4 rides totalling about 15 hours. After each ride, the fore/aft wobble seems to increase as does the rotational play. Anyone else notice this? At what point do you decide it's an issue? Can't detect it while riding yet. Has anyone defined a tollerance on these yet?

    Also, the finned cable end cap started to crack from the first use which now makes unhooking the post a bit more fiddly.

    On the plus side, the a tion is quick and smooth and I'm lo ing riding with it. Just hope that slop doesn't get any worse.

    For those trying to figure out which travel KS Lev to purchase they posted a formula to use on their Facebook page, since there isn't **** on their site.

    "Measure the distance from your seat collar on your frame to the center of your seat rail with your saddle at your normal climbing height (full leg extension). Then subtract 50mm. "

    Ordered my 31.6 125mm dropper today.

    They are listed under "KS USA" and that was the response given to a comment back in December.

It is almost undetectable with no seat attached, but when I have a seat on it, there is a definate noticable play with the whole inner shaft able to rock slightly forward & backwards in the outer tube.

    So, is this normal? Or is it a duffer that needs to go back out of the box? (good start!)

If the bike is stationary, I can shake the seat and definitely feel the play from front to back. Besides the play, the post worked as smooth as I expected it would.
    I bought my Lev 3 weeks ago, and I have the same problem...
    What is the best way to deal with it? is the threaded ring got anything to do with it?

    Just got my 125mm lev tonight, I see some people's collar on the post doesn't say lev on it like mine does? Anyone know if they changed it?

    I calculated and think that it can be too short for me since with my current 410mm seatpost I have 270mm from the rails to the seatclamp... and with LEV I will have (385-120=265 mm) lenght only if inserted properly to the line. Is it so terribly bad if I will install the post 5mm above the minimal insertion? Reverb's minimal is only 80mm...


    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!
    I've spent many hours looking for this info!

    Hoki, those are the rotating hooks from Jagwire. Come in 4 per pack. They work great but you need to be cautious as they do not work with smaller diameter hoses. No problems with brake hoses and the ones from Jagwire .

    Thanks Proxyserv! I ordered the rotating hooks along with a LEV 125mm. It's amazing how this changed my bike (the LEV, not the hooks ) !
