Strengths:    None?

Weaknesses:    It's weak.

Bottom Line:   
It was way more comfortable than aluminum, but then it snapped near the head. Not only is this junk but it's dangerous. I'd steer clear if you like your behind with just one hole in it.

Strengths:    Great suspension. I like the sideways pivoting feature.

Weaknesses:    You have to have a right angle six mm. alllen wrench to adjust the up and down of the seat.

Bottom Line:   
A great buy at the price. A real saver on the bum. This is the first suspension seat I have ever purchased. After examining several others I bought the Tamer on the recommendation of the bicycle shop owner. And I am very happy with the purchase. Any mountain biker or road biker would be the intended buyers.

Date Reviewed: August 19, 2001

Strengths:    lightweight

Weaknesses:    It broke, it's expensive

Bottom Line:   
On my third ride with this post (and on my first lap of a 24hr race), the post snapped. It broke at the very top where the seat bracket attaches to the post. There was a bang, my saddle was gone, along with the top inch of the post, luckily I did not impale myself on the very sharp piece that remained. I am not a particularly heavy rider - 180lbs. - so that should not have been a factor. I have emailed Tamer and hope to hear back from them soon.

Weaknesses:    hardly a weakness, but it's pricey ($200 Cdn), but it's also among the best, so who cares.

Bottom Line:   
After bending too many posts, i decided to go carbon. amazing post. simple, light, strong and easy on the back. enough said.

Strengths:    
Looks good
Seat Hardware
Doesn't Break


Weaknesses:    
None Yet


Bottom Line:   
I wanted a carbon seatpost with my FS bike and after some bad experiences with Easton posts the Tamer was recommended to me. I've had it about 5 months and I love it, the hardware works and best of all it doesn't break. It may not be the lightest post around but it's still pretty light and it's durable.
