    Just got mine after waiting for 5 months. Please check if attached photo is clear enough. I think 180mm is Okay to put a 125 mm one, but you may ask KS for a dimension.

    Hi Steve,
    I asked local shop in Taipei (Taiwan) to push the country distributer frequently and finally got one last Friday. Has been waiting for 5 months since KS said to release soon. Bike shop owner said my friend also put an order but still need to wait.

    If you're in the US, these guys have them all. I expect your LBS can order them too (when Universal has it in stock, my LBS can order it from QBP). If your order is over $300 use VIP15 coupon code for 15% discount, free shipping too.

    Did the KS reps mention when the Lev is hitting the stores?

    The Kronolog is, well, not so good. Check out the reviews today. Pretty bad. On the personal side, I know two people who had them go bad after roughly 5 rides. CB didn't seem to get this one right. Go with the KS.

    I have the new lever version along with the new lever kit and other components for upgrading from a saddle actuated lever to a bar actuated lever. Its all black and comes with the braided line. $80 shipped, new in box if anyone wants it. Just PM me.

    Thank you for taking the pic. I'm after a 27.2 which I've just realised, only come in 100mm travel so looks like there's plenty of room for me.

    Looks like they have most of the line up but I don't see the LEV listed on the website at all.

    Could you please tell what length dimension is from the bottom of seatpost to insertion line mark? thanks
    EDIT: found that info on wiggle website: The post is 385mm in length and has a travel of 125mm drop. Minimum insertion is 120mm, maximum insertion is 200mm. Stack height from the rails to the seatclamp is 55mm.
    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...

    I emailed KS asking about availability but never heard back. Makes me wonder if they'd reply to an email about a problem.

    I emailed KS and asked about the Lev today also. I did get a response back n about 1/2 hour. However that response was that the lev I was looking for (100mm travel) was not going to be available in the US for 2 to 4 months!! Why is it so hard for these companies to release something and then actually have them available to sell to people!

    Looks like Pricepoint has some 30.9mm in stock, according to their site, at least.

    I talked to KS and they said 125mm versions are out now for sale. 100mm will be available in late August / early Sept 2012. I am waiting for a 100mm.

    Another PricePoint confirmation. Ordered mine yesterday (30.9 x 125), got shipment confirmation today. I will post up reviews once I get it.

    Anyone that has had it for awhile able to comment on reliability? I'm hoping you are too busy riding to post up your reviews.

    I had a minor problem with my i950 a while back, emailed KS, Rick responded within 1 day, shipped it to CA, they fixed it and had it back to me within 2 weeks. IMO, very good customer service.

    Barrel adjuster

    Just received mine and trying to figure out where to position the barrel adjuster. Where did everyone position this?

    Just got my 31.6 125mm Lev today. Its my first adjustable seatpost so I don't have much to compare to besides jumping on a friend's bike with a Reverb but so far I love it. Really smooth actuation and no play at all yet. Easy installation, I put my barrel adjuster about 6" from the remote lever so it would be easy access to adjust it if needed. I have ODI grips and the integration with them is really nice. Took it on a ride and used it way more than necessary just to see how it held up. No problems at all. I'm very happy with this purchase so far. I'll post again in a few weeks after I've had some more time with it.

    Does the Lev have to be sent back to Kind Shock if there's any problems? No user serviceable parts?

    Holding up good. Only thing is that cutting the cable that is exposed past the housing is pretty important to get the right length. I had mine too long in the beginning, and the claw slipped off of the T-cable (which is what is pulled to release the post adjuster) during some bike rattling. Trimmed the cable and now it stays snug on there.
