Bottom Line:   

Am convinced that if you look at these posts wrong they will break. Broke two in a couple of months last summer, on moderate seat/butt impacts. Dissapointing. been running control tech ever since without a whimper. Tranz X posts are role tubes and they are easily seperated at the junction, seat posts should be seamless!!

Bottom Line:   

I would like to add, that this seat post becomes loose not after 200 Km, but after 344.3 Km. It happend to me eleven times exactly after 344.3 Km.
I would recommend it to anyone.

Bottom Line:   

The Zanzi-post was my first seatpost. I can say that I had no real big problems
with the seatpost during the time I used it (4-5 months). The only complaint I
have is that the saddle seemed to go loose after every 200km. The securing screws
seemed to be able to un-thread themselves after some really hard riding and boinging
around. I solved this problem by NOT GREASING the bolts at all. After that the
saddle stayed where it was set. The weight of the seatpost is among many aftermarket
posts, and for one thing it's dirt cheap where I come from. I would recommend this
seatpost to any beginning rider looking for a seatpost that's easy to adjust trailside,
and not looking to burn a small hole in his/her pocket.

be silent, onless it's greased up all over and carefuly assembled together,
it will make a cracking sound that is very anoying, I don't recommended to

I already have a Thompson Setback seatpost but I still think the fit is marginal and would like the saddle far ... Read More »

Seatpost Grease Question

I am worried I lost all the seatpost grease on my Raleigh. One time I was drying off the bike with an air hose and accidentally aimed the pressurized air at the seatpost collar. Grease went everywhere, and I am guessing most of it is no longer where it needs to be. So my question is, is it import ... Read More »
