Keep at it. If it's going to be as good as my stem I'm happy to wait.
I ordered a package deal of both the stem and the seatpost. I understand the seatpost is still being developed, but is there a reason I haven't yet received my stem?
@Rick - thanks so much!
@Matthew - you can definitely get your stem shipped early. All you need to do is go into your backerkit survey and add the "early stem shipping" add-on item. Once you have added it just shoot us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get the stem sent out. Sorry for any confusion, the early stem option was added at the end of the campaign and mentioned in a few of the updates.
Have you considered a "nylon fabric sock" that would velcro-close around the suspension post...kind of like the one that Suntour offers for their post? Maybe you could integrate a small zippered pocket on the back and call it a mini-Seat post bag?
For roadies that don't venture off-road or off-tarmac, it wouldn't be needed. For Full-time Gravel Grinders, it would simply be an enhancement that would ensure longer life for their investment.
@Kevin - thanks so much for the suggestion. We are actually supplying all the seatposts with a fender to achieve exactly what you are talking about. You can see pictures of prototypes here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/redshiftsports/shockstop-seatpost-add-suspension-to-your-bike/posts/2297258 - thanks!
