Strengths:    Awesome looks,comfy,durable,the best adjustment system out there.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
This seatpost has been perfect so far for this heavy rider. Much more comfortable for me than aluminum. Definately takes the edge off trail chatter. I prefer it to the mushy feel and the loss of power of the Thudbuster. Make sure to round off the inside lip of the top of the seattube (slightly) with a file before use - carbon doesn't like sharp angles where it flexes at the top of the frame.

Bottom Line:   
This is a solid product from Raceface. The unique clamp is easy to adjust and I had no problems with slippage. The post is reasonably light but not significantly lighter than high quality aluminum posts from Easton or Thomson. Finally, this post also has A LOT of offset - depending on your bike set-up, this may be a problem.

Strengths:    Great product of fine design, innovative clamp adjustment, easy tunable.Strong and stable platform.

Weaknesses:    The top end model should be sold with Ti and aluminum bolts, instead of steel ones...(shame!)

Bottom Line:   
This product will have a long long life. I wish the company could upgrade Next SL with a lightweight kit for weight conscious addicted (and who weight light too...) like me!

Strengths:    The best saddle clamp adjustment I've ever seen, light as any Easton but less finicky. Nice measuring lines for remeoving excess post length.

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
Great post, the seat clamp is a two bolt affair this is truly unique, first adjustment hold the fore 7 aft, second clamps controls the tilt. Others posts always require you similtaneously hold postions while tighting. Also has nice degree marks and post height marks. Oh and it holds the saddle perfectly still of course.

Raceface NEXT sl... And cranks in general I guess.

Looking at them online, they have single, double and triple. They also have 9spd and 10spd. If you were to have one that has the typical 64/104bcd and no chain rings on it, is there any technical difference between 9 and 10 speed? I.e. the width/thickness of the chain ring tabs or spacing between th ... Read More »
