That sounds like a big plus in your design

On Sunday when it failed I stripped cable inner out and manually put the pin in.
What is the service interval ? (I'm a bit lazy and usually wait until it needs doing )

I service mine every time it gets a life of its own ! probably about every 3 months depending on weather

It will be interesting to see if you have any issues off the bat. As your post sits higher than mine

The tightness of your original seat clamp affects the use of the seat post, don't do them up tight as it restricts the movement

Aide, your right it is ugly, it reminds me of your gravity dropper.
Here's a picture to compare with my joplin and reverb ;) Image

Well i nearly threw my I.C.E v8 in the bin after last night, i cleaned and serviced and lubed it and noticed the thick 'o'ring around the top of the red collar was split. in fact there is a chunk taken out of the top of it and on last nights ride it just kept dropping down, got really frustrating, i couldn't work out why, tried winding the cable right in to lock it up but the post had so much movement the pin kept letting the post drop.

I've emailed mtbparts, the company in France that makes/distributes them about getting a new 'o'ring, its a bit of an odd shape so will ask for the right part first before trying to find something suitable from a DIY type store, the o ring is more of a grommet than an o ring so my local hydraulic place will have loads of various sizes <fingers crossed>

They sent me a new grommet / o ring but i'm not sure its fixed my problem, reluctant to put the post back on the bike when setting off as i dont want to ruin my ride, will need to try and find time one evening or at the weekend to work it out <sigh>

Little bit of seat clamp and a little bit of the black box
I'm an ex tree monkey so used a flat chain file from my chainsaw kit :)
