    The hooks face out on the LEV.

    3rd week of may is what I've gotten from pretty much everyone. Universal said they'd be posting them to their site soon so you can get a notification for it. With the %15 this may be the best deal if you can snag one. I've also had several guys tell me from everything they know and have heard they're going to be worth the wait.

    My post should be here Tuesday and then I leave for CO later that week and will be stopping at 4 IMBA Epics on the drive out, so I will happily post a review of it.

    Anyone received one yet? My LBS has a stock alert for when they show up at QBP (distributor) - they've heard nothing yet.

    I thought Thomson was shipping these to distributors a few weeks ago.

    Can someone here tell me what the stealth version is? Am I to understand that one would need a special frame with internal routing set aside just for the post cable?
    Like half of everything I ride comes out of Jenson. Figure that out.

    Correct! Also, Spag help you if you ever want to take the post out to adjust it or mend it.

    Stealth dropper posts will rank along with flex stems in five years time...

    On of the many reasons I stick with Thomson parts: the beauty of a machined part that follows from its simple purpose. *DROOOOOOOL*

    I predict . . . that you will be wrong. It's actually quite simple to remove and service the post. The stealth reverb already has a quick-connect for simple servicing without needing to bleed the system. You just need to ensure that the post is setup properly so that you leave enough slack in the line to pull the post.

    You are one lucky.... person.

    When I talked with Thomson via email last week I was told they only received and shipped to distribution 100 posts.
    You got one...

    The rest of us wait a minimum of another 3 weeks, but, my guess is we won't see posts until well into summer or after.

    Bummer, I've had my order in for at least 5 months.

    I had my order in since late January. I have a really good big bike store in with in walking disance and have been going there for my hole life, so I am glad the came thru. The thing that sucks is I will not be able to try it untill Monday because my bike was getting the back wheel rebuilt and now I am away for the weekend. Will give a full report on Monday with lots of photos!

    I'll try and get it for you tomorrow when I install the post on my Nomad C.

    It looks similar to a fork seal.

    I can tell you this; this post is a LOT lighter than my KS i950r and the remote lever is 2/3's the size. That lever is a piece of art... as is the post itself...

    Sorry as in Fox.

    All the different manufacturers are actually listed on the post. There are four or five total.
    Plus somewhere on the web I saw a video that listed all of the manufacturers involved.
