    Hi guys,

    Just wondering if you guys know of anyone in the city (T.O.) who knows how to do something like this: http://www.peterverdone.com/ks-lev-rebuild-and-travel-adjustment/.

    My new bike came with a 150 mm travel KS Lev Integra. I’ve already got the post pretty much slammed as far into the frame as it will go. At full extension, the post is a tad high for me. My feet are still able to be firmly planted on my pedals at 6 o’clock, but my leg is pretty much fully extended–I can’t get that desired slight bend in the knee.

    I mean, I could easily just ride with the post slightly dropped the 10-20 mm to get the proper height I need to get that bend, but it’d be nice to not have to worry about adjusting it again after bringing the post back up to full extension. I’d also like to avoid buying a new dropper post to replace a perfectly good one.

    Stupid me. I should have measured what the proper height I’d need would be. Turns out, looks like I’d need to drop the post 25 mm to get to the proper height. I guess I’d just be better off finding a 125 mm Lev to swap the 150 mm for. Never mind, guys. (Couldn’t find a delete post option, so I’m posting up again. Sorry.)



    Lots of people are wanting to do the opposite, go from 125 to 150. I would bet that if you post up in the usual places you would find someone pretty quickly.
