    there is no step 16 oh well I tried
    I really like the way this works on my bike
    drop the post without loosing your grip
    the tension is high enough so you shouldnt have any accidental drops
    please dont correct my spelling because I know it is bad and I made this with microsoft paint so I can't fix it anyway
    enjoy

    cool idea and execution, but can you get it adjusted so that the throw is still minimal?

    personally, never had an issue with taking a thumb off the bar to raise/lower the post. took me some trial and error to find the sweet spot that worked best for me. I have the lever for my post positioned pretty much directly above the bar. Can also bump it with the back of my hand in a pinch.

    also - assuming you are using the front shifter?

    correct front shifter
    I have a command post and am able to adjust the play out of it with the threaded adjuster
    I have carpal tunnel and this is easier for me to operate
