How do you find the elastomers? That is, are their weight guidelines close to right on?
I have the softest elastomer in my 30 degree ShockStop. For my weight, the recommendation was for the next firmer elastomer, and most people seem to find the recommendations pretty accurate. I find with the softest one, I don’t feel I am bottoming out... maybe because my position is fairly upright.

I have a Kinekt for sale if anyone here is looking for one. Its the 2.1 version with 350 mm tube length. My brother bought a used TERN e-bike and the Kinekt made it too tall for him. So its a medium spring (150-200lbs rider with a couple of extra springs I guess to adjust the tension for heavier riders). I wasn't even installed on the bike when he bought it. Almost brand new.

I may be interested... what is the seat post diameter?

I'd say they're accurate, but I'm an edge case. :)

I'm actually using a slightly softer elastomer setup right now, based on their guidance, but that's because my current handlebars are right on the edge of too much sweep back.
