Just installed a Kinekt 2.1xl on my Gazelle.
I'm instantly sold! It really smoothes out the road vibe!

I had to cut it down 2" to get it all the way down to where I needed it. Took a bit to dial in the seat position but wow! It's a keeper.
I was worried about spending that kind of money and not being impressed. I'm impressed!

Yup, got the Kinekt on all the bikes. Makes a huge difference!

Agreed! Everyone I know who uses the Kinekt loves the product.

It's a good thing you didn't buy the Redshift suspension post instead. Part of the suspension mechanism is in the seat tube and can't be cut down.

It is so good for me I can have Kinekt installed on one of my e-bikes and Redshift on another...

do you like one over the other?
Both are equal, if you ask me. It is hard for me to compare them for one reason: either is installed on a very different e-bike.

As you are certainly aware ruffruff, a heavy e-bike is very much susceptible to road vibration; more lightweight e-bike is far more tolerant. I installed Kinekt on the heavy e-bike, and Redshift on the more lightweight. I like the performance of Redshift better but that could be really affected by the bike weight. Kinekt gives me pedal bob at times, and big bumps tend to max it out. However, that could be probably easily cured by installing the heavier spring if I find it in my storage. (I am on the verge between the lighter and heavier spring).
