Cheap and it works... Sometimes

By Curt

from Woodland, CA

Comments about KS Supernatural-R Seatpost 150mm:

I use the post for trail riding, when the post is working properly it does just fine. But if you ever have to warranty it or deal with KS customer service, good luck. You probably have a better chance of calling the white house and having Obama answer than getting a call back or email response from KS. KS has the worst customer service I have ever seen, and the product they make is not much better either. Save your money and buy a better quality post from a company that cares.

Comments about KS Supernatural-R Seatpost 150mm:

I agree with the consensus that the thing is impossible to install. After an hour, I took it to the bike shop. The wire came loose on my first ride, and I had to navigate switchbacks with the seat at full height, so that sucked. I took it back to the shop for a fix, and it's worked well for the last 20+ rides. Seat sticks on initial ride; i.e., you need to manually yank it up while depressing the handle bar lever, but after that, it will work fine for the remainder of the day. It will change the way you ride, and is probably the most functional upgrade I've ever done.

Comments about KS Supernatural-R Seatpost 150mm:

Installation of this thing sucks soooooo much. The cable is nearly impossible to wrap underneath the washer and tiny cable pinch bolt. Who thought that was a good design? The bolt strips super easily, too. Furthermore, the washer doesn't provide a lot of grip on the cable, so the cable slips out easily leaving you with a stuck saddle on the trail. The cable housing outside the post moves around a lot, therefore routing it so it doesn't rub on things is very difficult. Kind Shock's customer service is the worst I've ever seen. I don't know how many times I've called and left voicemails. Emails are never returned. Even several of my LBS haven't had any luck contacting them! Jenson, I would love you forever if you took this awful post from an awful company off my hands and gave me something else.

People, DO NOT BUY THIS DROPPER POST. The lower cost is not worth the headache it's guaranteed to give you. I hate this thing so much.

Disappointment

    Comments about KS Supernatural-R Seatpost 150mm:

    This seat post looks great, but it was very difficult to install. The directions are are very basic, skipping over several steps, and written on a 3*5 booklet that is hard to read in direct fluorescent light. I'm don't work on my bike often, but I'm not a total newbie either. The worst part was that the bolt to hold the wire is 1) nearly impossible to "thread." There is no space to wrap the wire, and you have to try to do so on a 4mm bolt with a washer. The hex bolt is made of aluminum and stips easily too. Poor design decision there. Both were cumbersome, and turns out, ineffective. I ended up taking it to a bike shop to install. So even after the professional installation, the cable slipped halfway through my first ride, which made me have to negotiate switchbacks and single track at the very top seat height. That was dangerous. They also have another unit, the LEV that has the connection point nearer the frame, and it is fixed. That seems like a smarter design as the cable is easily accessible and doesn't have to travel the 6 inches when you extend the seat, but you might get debris effects with it exposed. KS returned my phone calls, so they at least attempt to do the right thing. When it works, it is nice to have 150mm of travel. At 5"6, I probably don't even need that much, but I can imagine taller folks will appreciate the reach. It stuck out of the box, which also made the install hard. I wondered if I needed air to pump in it, but it turns out it was just stuck. How was I to know? It stuck on the morning of the first ride as well, but started working fine after that... until it failed. Tough to recommend, but I will probably keep mine.

    A bit harder to install than I thought, the directions were not at all clear, but I found some YouTube videos that put me on the right track.

    Works well, thanks.

    When adjusting the height of the post initially takes time to adjust the cable tension. Once adjusted the post works great.

        After a minor adjustment to secure cable in the proper position it's been a real smooth operator. Jensen price matched and I was happy with the service received.
