IAB try half that amt including tax and shipping. Yeah they are great if your terrain has a lot of steep ups and downs, no stopping dismounting and adjusting the seat height. Just push a toggle to get the seat where you need it and keep on ripping

Well when I was in your position it answered my question. I thought they were gimmicky too until I actually used one.
I had the opposite result. I thought they were gimmicky and using one kind of confirmed it for me. That said, if someone gave one to me I wouldn't turn it down, but I didn't think it was worth any more than I might pay for a normal seat post.

So what you're saying it's that your delicate ginger behind couldn't handle it

For some unknown reason I get a ton of crap from my friends about not running a dropper post.
A good friend just let me borrow one That I have yet to put on, and I was telling another friend about it and he said,
"You have to watch that post, it pops you in the nuts when it comes back up. But it is so worth it,
and you get used to it."

Yeah, that is something I want to get used to!;)

For sure ...kinda thing that if you paid the silly amount for one then you use and appreciate it. Is it really required to ride ...ah no. Still ...I like mine. Had a couple knee surgeries ... like the seat up then out of my way for the descents.

but yea ... fvck that FedEx ... delaying our toys. Dam them!
We gave you $18.50 to drive it accross country ...isn't that enough?!
They are moving so much stuff now ...they show up in a rental truck in our neighborhood now.
Prob lots of temps.

I got my shipping refunded. Hey if I paid slow boat then no bitching, it gets here whenever. However if I pay a premium for a specified day delivery and you don't satisfy the contractual agreement then I want a refund of the charges for non performance.

Had a Crank Bros post like that...wasn't impressed. Sold on Fleabay for more than I paid for it...
Yeah the Kronolog is pretty sh*t.
Had one break before it even left my shop!
Seat bolt sheared off.... it's pretty weak up around that area.
They also have the following problems;
plastic cover where the cable enters the post is always getting knocked off/lost.
the flat faced slide on front and rear mark really badly and end up look **** by the time you have it set up and test ridden let alone used out on the trails.

Your better off with a KS Lev or a Reverb.
