First I love this dropper seat post so far, WOW it makes a big difference especially when riding the 29 aggressively. Just FYI : Choice of Droppers was KS Lev vs Reverb very close: Choose KS Lev for cable management, over possible better service / parts availability for Reverb (it was a close call, and slightly against Professor Brandi's rec) In short I thought the Reverb cable would bother me every ride vs the clean KS implmenation, where as if I have a service issues it will only bother me during the service issue. (Hows that for logic) Anyways, I currently have about 150 Miles on it, once the seat clamp bolts came loose, blame that on initial installation and not over-tightening seat clamp bolts but I don't think all that wear came from that one incident. So 2 questions Is this normal wear for 150 Miles / 10 rides? I do climb a lot including steeps so I do press down into the saddle Should I put some grease (or something else) on this interface? Or is Clean best. I will apply some light grease on the seat clamp bolt threads and typically a little on the rails. Please feel free to provide any insight, and/or expose my lack of wrenching knowledge.
