That doesn't sound normal. And I do have a OneUp V2 and can confirm it goes up and down as it should. But so does my other KS ETEN dropper. . .
Well now they go on sale after I just bought one. I really dig it though. I got the Rainier instead of the Loam.I've used the Bike Yoke Revive for the last 4 years but just installed a PNW Loam and after my one ride I'd say the action is as smooth and quick as the Revive. With the current 20% off sale you can get a Loam post at a fraction of the cost ($159) of the Revive ($350 or more).
I hate it when that happens!!!Well now they go on sale after I just bought one. I really dig it though. I got the Rainier instead of the Loam.
