Strengths:    Super easy to adjust. There is only on bolt that does the whole thing.

Weaknesses:    None I can see at this time.

Bottom Line:   
This is a good seat post. I have not had a need to change it. If it is to bend or something like that I would probably by a Thompson, but for now it works well.

Date Reviewed: September 29, 2007

Strengths:    Strong, simple, infinitely adjustable.

Weaknesses:    Super stiff, weight, clamp interferes with skirted saddles such as Regal.

Bottom Line:   
Nice seatpost, one of my favorites for its solidity. If you use a saddle that "covers" the rails, it will be difficult to use.

Race Face Cranks ?

Looking to change out my crankset. I ride singlespeed and really don't see the point of buying a double or triple, removing the ring(s) and than try to sell them.
