Strengths: light, seat clamped well
Weaknesses: after maybe 150 miles the top of the post came loose. it spins around.
I am glad that I didn't pay retail(except that I don't have a receipt). I got it new but the top of the seatpost quickly came loose from the seatpost tube. I'm only 180 and it didn't get crashed. Maybe I just got a defective post. For the retail price of these things I hope this doesn't happen often.

Strengths: Looks, Weight, Adjustment, Syncros
Weaknesses: Not at this time, the post did slip but only because I greased the frame when I wasn't suppose to.
The post is great, it is light and does not flex like the titanium posts did. It still absorbs shock as well if not better. Syncro stuff is great, I have alway loved them, never had any of the problems that I have been reading from others. Bottom Line: the post does what it is suppose to do, and in my opinion it does it better than many others out there. Light, good looking, strong, and shock absorbing ....... Can't beat It!

Yeah, the raw cf looks pretty bad-ass, especially in the sun, the gloss finish looks awesome. Buuuuuut, it's been raining almost nonstop for weeks and it looks like it will continue to do so. ...
