Strengths:    Looks great. Light weight. easy to ajust.

Weaknesses:    Noisey. Ajustment slippage.

Bottom Line:   
Started out great! Looked awsome on bike and was not a lead pipe in the weight department. Used for about 6 months on XC bike until I had to swap it out for something else..............For some reason I would ajust my saddle angle and after 2-4 rides it would always "slip" a little bit so it was nose up slightly. Not a lot but enough that I could tell when the bike felt "different". I began keeping track of it with a level and everytime it would "slipped back to the same location. Weird. The straw that made the camel go WTF?! was that it developed an anoying creeeking/clicking noise at the top end linkage. I tried cleaning, lubing, re-torqing (always used torque wrench to specs when ajusting), all to no avail. It just drove me nuts with the noise and re-ajusting.

What is weird is I have the less expensive original Evolve post (same basic design) on another bike that has been flawless. I put a Truvativ on the bike and it's been solid with no noises.

Raceface Turbine 3x10 speed middle sprocket compatibility

The teeth wore rapidly on mine and the Raceface replacements are expensive. Not wishing to blow money on expensive things that don't last I replaced mine with a Shimano XT M760 (Hollowtech 2), which was about 1/2 the cost. Both the M760 have a bolt circle diameter (BCD) of 104mm, and the Shimano ha ... Read More »
