    Any Clyde on a KS LEV?
    Hi guys. I am considering purchasing a dropper post and where i live i can get the RS, Fox DOSS and KS LEV for the same price, only the KS LEV doesn't have warranty (no local distributor here). I am leaning on getting the LEV only i don't know if it can take my 280lb-er on a nomad. I would appreciate any opinion from a Clyde who have tried the LEV.

    Thanks!

    Great question, I am 242 myself and would like to try one of these out this year. I think it would enhance my XC riding as some times I like to do some jumps and other obstacles. Having a high seat gets in the way...Subscribed

    245 lbs. KS Lev 150, no problems at all, but only have 10 or 15 rides on it so far.

    i know your asking about the LEV, but I have had great success with the reverb (i sit at about 260). I have had it for a couple years and just recently had to rebuild it (my fault really, messed up the top seal putting it in the stand, it didn't take long for performance to deteriorate after that).

    The LEV also interested me due to the lack of cable motion and the additional 25mm of drop that I could have (find myself wanting more out of the reverb occasionally).

    I have a Reverb and a Gravity Dropper Turbo. If I had to do it over again I would have gotten another Gravity Dropper instead of the Reverb. Its a great post, I have been using mine for about 3 years and I have only had to take it apart and lube it once which takes about a total of 10 minutes if you take your time.
