    I have never used a seat post like this. My son, however, has been through a bunch of them. They look to be pretty sturdy, but internal leaks and subsequent system purging seemed plague my son. I dont remember the vendor. I am hoping that someone, maybe you, has found the combination. Good luck!

    It’s not locked when the seat is pulled up.

    @Steve i’m willing to bet your son had at least one Crank Bros Joplin :)

      @kilerisation Strangely I’ve had a Joplin since it came out and have had zero problems. But I seem to be in the minority.
