Strengths:    appearance

Weaknesses:    The single bolt clamp is horrible. This thing is a knock-off of the Campagnolo Record Carbon post (which is a great post). Weyless used a much smaller bolt to attach to the seat than Campy did, thus rendered the unit worthless. I had to get off my bike every 3-5 miles and tighten down my Selle Italia Flite saddle. It drove me crazy. After a few months of this I complained to Supergo and got my money back. What a piece of junk!!!

Bottom Line:   
Stay away from this one, unless the often discounted prices on the unit are worth more to you than the time you will spend on the side of the road tightening this puppy to the saddle. YUCK!

Strengths:    lightweight. Isn't tapered like the easton handlebars, which makes this seatpost a little less nerve racking to install. Single bolt seat clamp works really well and has a neat finish that looks like oil in a parking lot, with the rainbow type thing going on.

Weaknesses:    A little short for me, maybe because of frame geometry or frame size in reference to my body (I am 6'3"). The bolt that is used in the seat clamp is strange, the allen wrench walls slope inward as you go deeper into the bolt, making me think I had the wrong wrench when I first went at it. Just make sure you push that thing all the way in so you don't strip anything and you are golden.

Bottom Line:   
probably better suited for road, but since I got this thing as a gift and can't return it, I am going to give it a rip. It is a might bit too short but it'll probably be good to have the seat a little farther away from the jewels anyway. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE POST AS FAR IN AS THE INSERTION LINE. I would hate to see one of these beautiful posts break.
