Featured Review

“One more good review.”

The Good: This post is a set and forget item. It will not move or let you down. Really fine angle adjustment.

The Bad: Kind of a bitch to swap saddles, but the amount of time spent is made up for by years of trouble free use.

Overall Review: Not enough stars to give a proper rating.

“Awesome seat post”

The Good: Have had it for over 10 years and it's still great. Zero complaints. Has been on two different bikes and tied with one other part that's the oldest things on my bike. Confident i will run it for years to come.

The Bad: Nothing i can think of.

Overall Review: Excellent post that's worth every penny.

“the standard by which all other seatposts are judged.”

The Good: Everything!

The Bad: Its 40% stronger than the strongest production seatposts on the market, so the bad part about that is they almost never break.

Overall Review:

Over all pretty much one of the best bikeparts you could put on almost any bike Period.

One Piece Extruded Aluminum makes forOne of the Strongest if not the vary strongest seatpost out there.

approximately 188 grams (250 length) and 228 grams (330 length),41 mm seat rail grip lengthMost other seatposts have grip lengths of .500 inch or more shorter.

I cant Recommend this post more!

“perfection”

The Good: solid durable strong two bolt clamp. machined one piece design. smooth micro adjustability

The Bad: price. but you get what you pay for

Overall Review: this seat post is the standard by which all other seat posts are measured. the machining and tolerances are amazing. there is no creaking or slipping or loosening of the bolts. the adjustment feature is the best I best I've ever used. Treat yourself and get this seat post!

“Best post money can buy.”

The Good: Light, strong, clean, beautiful

The Bad: A bit on the spendy side.

Overall Review: The best post. Super strong, it has an ovalized inner diameter (more material where needed less where not), and a "one piece" design. But perhaps one of the best features is the finish. It is tough. I hate when post paint fades and wheres through after a few times of moving the post (fsa). looks crappy and cheap. And the OD of the post always seems to be perfect, no forcing into the seat tube should be nessasary.
