I also want to push back just a little on the relative difficulty of installing a post or cutting the cable on a system, like the KS, that captures the cable at the post. With the caveat that I do have a lot of experience installing these posts.
The secret is to use a tape measure. Install your cable housing exactly how you want it in terms of the length from your frame exit to your remote. Cut the other end of the housing flush with the seat post collar. Measure your post so you know how deep in the frame it will sit. Then pull the housing back through the frame (out at the seat tube) just long enough to cut off the insertion depth of your post.
Perfect cable length every time.
Or if you prefer just bolt the cable at the post end - really no different than if you have the cable head at that end - and use a remote that captures the cable. But even then my measurement system will save you time going back and forth.
