My first impulse was sweet, I really need that.
Then I thought about the price of the first rock hopper I bought back in 1986 and it was just $50 more than that seat post.

Like all Crank Bros. products, give it year on the market then buy something else.

With respect to function & execution, it looks like a new&improved All Mountain Post. But $300?

I LOVE the design.
Extremely simple, basically a pipe clamp with a cable to loosen the "quills"
Love the flats on the main post to keep things straight. Just a great all around design.
Like Marshalolsen, I think the price is cheap, especially considering it's a total new design.

I wonder if over time the post will develop "notches" where the mechanism engages the inner shaft.

but dude, those thomson design files where written, what almost 20 years ago? its $5 worth of aluminum, and a design that has not changed... ever. and its still $100. look at the design, R&D, tooling, materials, small parts, increased warranty, customer service etc required on a dropper post. 3x compared to something as simple as straight aluminum post is a great price. i mean an alloy rigid fork is $79.99. a lyrik is $900. a lyrik has baically the same moving parts and number of seals and such as a reverb. just saying.

Looks pretty damn slick. I'll be keeping my eye on this for when my KS wears out or blows up.There's nothing better than sliding down snow and flying through the air.

pipe clamp. The shaft'll get chewed up for sure, but I guess it should be easy enough to replace that seal.
It looks to address 'most' of the issues that people had with the Joplin. Still would like to see a two-bolt seat clamp, though.

And this.... ( I only sell their cleats in my store so I don't lose shoe sales, nothing else)
LAST thing you want is a $145 dropper post that fails on a ride.
Spend the money on one that has a warranty through an IBD! (like me!)
