    Strengths:    Construction looked A+ if you like a heavy post that is..

    Weaknesses:    Well, advertised on net and printed on package "350mm 31.6 190gms"...... THATS VERY MISLEADING. Im not too much of a weight weenie, I wanted a carbon post for the carbon qualities of vibration dampening. Well, I took the post out from its package and it felt like a brick. So I weighed it on my home scale and a digital scale at work, my suspicions were true, home scale read 300gms, digital said 302 grams......Wow thats a far cry from the advertised 190 gram and is misleading. My current post (Bontrager Select 350mm 31.6 weighs 310gms)..... I didnt even slide the carbolite post in my bike, it went back in box and sent back to price point.....

    Bottom Line:   
    Buyer beware of the hype on weight on this one as advertised.....One tird for false advertising and 2 tirds cuz the construction looked first rate to me with out actually riding it...

    Strengths:    190 grams!, very strong, shim design is very practical, micro adjust system is the best around.

    Weaknesses:    none

    Bottom Line:   
    In my opinion, this is the best carbon seatpost on the market. Believe me, I have done tons of research before I ordered the post and paid 100 bucks for it! Micro adjust system is sooooooo easy to use. looks very cool!
