The 3M cable guides are nifty for a quick install but the adhesive isn't holding up to well in the Texas heat. A little persuasion is usually necessary to re-adhere from time to time.
A dab of Loctite on the adjustment fasteners for the seat AFTER you've set up the seat to your liking isn't a bad idea. Got caught in the middle of a big ride with the fasteners backing out and my tool sitting on the workbench. It was a long, slow ride back.
Works great. Like this design feature that requires a bit of rider pressure on the seat to activate the release - especially on the up extension - no surprises in the nether region is a welcoming comfort.
Drops that I used to walk I now take w/o hesitation. Being able to throw your center of gravity over the back wheel and drop the heals makes taking those obstacles a no brainer.
PROS: Solid feel, Wiggle Free Ride, No Guessing Seat Height
CONS: Could Use Loctite
BEST USES: Mountain Biking, Upgrade
On a hind sight, I would order the version that allows for 1-inch incremental drop. Dropping 3 inches is okay for extended downhill portions or really technical stuff, but my riding would benefit with just 1 or 2 inch drop most of the time.

The bad is that the lever is very hard to activate, requires a lot of pressure. The more bad is that my particular model would not move up and down once I activated the lever. After about twenty minutes of trying I got it to drop once and it seemed to drop more than 4" as it was really hard to sit on it to get it to activate up. It took me quite a while tonget it to move back up and after messing around with it for another 30 minutes I gave up.
Thereviews of this product are stellar so I think I got a stinker. But I would recommend the turbo over the classic because the Turbo does not require sitting on it to get it to move tonthe up position.
