Every 30 days, we award the Top User Reviewer with a little prize. This month Jenson USA pitched in a $100 gift card! Vital MTB member nuke earned the Top Reviewer spot with one solid review. Sometimes that's all it takes. Here's a recap:

Loaded Precision X-Lite Quick Release Post Clamp - "First I must admit to being a bit of a bling whore. I typically choose to keep it somewhat less flashy though, so I chose to order the clear anodized (silver) clamp. I ordered directly from the manufacturer and despite being on the opposite coast of the country, I received the clamp in 3 business days. Packaging was small and simple, requiring only a pair of scissors to cut a single cable tie to free the clamp from its retail card.

Holding the clamp in hand was a pleasure. It is unbelievably lightweight and has a feel comparable to a fine wristwatch. After removing the factory QR clamp and holding each in opposite hands the difference in quality is striking. Low grade stamped alloy and carbon steel vs. precision machined aircraft grade aluminum and titanium. The design and execution between two parts destined to perform the same duty shows the dedication Loaded Precision had when engineering this clamp.

Installation took less thought than tying a shoe, as expected. The clamp fit noticeably tighter to the seat tube than the factory piece, and the machined lip on the inside diameter made it impossible to position the clamp too far down over the seat tube. After sliding my seat post into position within the seat tube, the knurled thumb nut was easily adjusted to provide perfect clamping force. The lever is just long enough to provide adequate leverage to clamp tightly without being unsightly, nestling tightly against the body of the clamp. All that was left was to stand back and marvel at the jewel like quality I had just applied to my wonderful bicycle." - Read more
