Only taken it around the block and seems to be work fine. About 700g for the 150mm option. Cheap and simple like I was expecting.
One massive buyer-beware though. Despite being advertised as a "KS" dropper, this is clearly a Chinese copy being manufactured based on the IP/tooling of a discontinued product. The dropper I received is not labeled as "KS" anywhere, and instead comes from this well known brand ;-)
I'll update if my riding experience changes any of this...
This is a smooth Hydraulic seat post with an underseat lever that takes some getting use to. It is perfect for me because I am a set it and forget it rider.
I am older and this post allows me to get on and off with a low seat height, FANTASTIC !!!
It goes up at a comfortable
pace and is easy to do. Going down on the hand takes some work but gets easier with use, HOWEVER I would not suggest this to a lite rider due to the force it takes while on pedals to push it down. I weigh 160lbs
I and I have yet to completely force it down in 1 attempt, I am sure this will happen with break in and e perience.
Mounting my seat was straight forward and easy, no surprises.
I like this a lot, has made getting on and off my Trance 3 much easier.
