    suspension seatpost with air pump

    hi there

    i bought an iguana giant in taiwan last year - with a few modifications
    because i needed a light bike and didn't want to buy a full suspension bike
    one of the changes we made was to replace the seatpost with a suspension one
    it worked fine when i bought it and the salesman explained and demonstrated how to use it
    i didn't think much of it at the time as i was trying to follow the instructions (in chinese!) of how to assemble it when i got to japan
    that part worked out but the suspension of the seatpost didn't
    i tried going to many different shops for some info (here in nagoya, montreal and even ilo ilo in the philippines during a recent trip)
    taking the bike with me whenever i could
    if they had even heard of such a thing
    they had no idea what the air pump at the bottom nor the air valve on the top side were for

    so now, here i am with a great bike, a suspension seatpost that cost quite a bit but is as rigid as a regular seatpost
    i'd give anything for some info/advice/suggestions as i'm not going back to taiwan anytime soon
    thanks
    t.

    thanks for the reply and the links
    ks (kind shock) is exactly what i have
    and i'm not surprised to find out that they are based in tainan where i bought the bike
    i clearly missed the part that the air pump is an added bonus
    and now the suspension works too
    took a year to figure it out
    what a shame
    thanks a mil
