    KS Supernatural will not return all the way

    The seat post has been great for the last 6 months, but just the other day it decided to start not returning all the way. I locks out about 1.5 inches below where it should. Other than that it functions normally... Any ideas?

    Have you been maintaining/servicing the post?
    They need cleaned and lubed every once in a while.
    Also, check the cable tension.
    Unless something is wrong with the cartridge, cleaning/lubing post and adjusting/replacing cable fix most performance issues.
    You need to use a light grease, something like Slick Honey.

    Try applying some grease and see if that helps.

    I have the same problem on an i950. I just serviced it and no change. It raises slowly and stops a bit before full return. Acts like it needs higher air pressure.

    Ideas? I'll probably send it back to KS for an overhaul
