I've had a reverb for 3 years now been rebuilt once.

Just curious, when you say breaking the head, do you mean "oh gosh my seat is slipping" or potential hospitalisation with internal injuries?


just bent several heads

I'd expect that to be ok, but because the cable attaches to the less favoured moving part of the seatpost you get a loop of cable flopping about when you lower the seat. This can get fouled in the linkages on some bikes, and can be annoying if it is brushing against you legs.

And nobody want floppy cable fouling and touch all over the place.


:mmm:

I think having the seat @ max height & clever placement of a tie or two could alleviate this issue ^^

If I ever get around to ordering it - I'll keep ya posted [no pun intended] :rolleyes:

Had one on my carbon Xc boik since '09 now, had zero issues. Just make sure you torque the clamp to correct setting :)

Cable doesn't move on the LEV. Whether the moving cable is an issue for you tends to depend on how well the cable routes on your frame

I've got one of the older KS posts, the cable loop has never really been an issue. Cable is routed so the loop goes out directly behind the seat.
