Strength:

Works

Weakness:

No remote

Ive asked alot from this post and it keeps going strong. This post has taken a beating as i wreck often and go otb monthly. Its had its share of hits and still no problems. No play in any direction. Having the lever version takes away from the usefulness. You CANNOT upgade from lever to remote. Other then that its been awesome.

Strength:

So far so good. I have none of the issues that were listed below. I was told before purchase that the posts internals had been revamped for 2011.

Weakness:

Makes a settling noise when I sit on it. Sorta of like a click, but really no big deal.

I think its a good product. Worth the purchase, if you change your seatpost hieght alot, then do it.

Strength:

Cheapest quality telescopic seat post available.
Reliable. No cable.

Weakness:

None so far, works as announced, no play, no failure.

The most useful piece on my bike.
Helps adapting to multiple conditions.
Works perfectly after 6 month, no play vertical or lateral.

Store the bike with seat in the highest position. Keep joits greased. Failure to do so induces problems.

Brilliant !

Strength:

125mm - hasslefree no cables - just grip between your legs and it goes down or up.

Weakness:

a bit sticky when not used for a while, clamp came loose several times until i fixed it with red loctite, clamp came off seatpost (loctite again), DO NOT pull when the lever is not engaged - air will get into the oil and will never go out again (pumping the post up and down solved the problem 95%)

there may be better products, but this is the cheapest way to go and this products works ok.
I have used it every other day the last 3 months, even with temperatures far below freezing, so this was true testing ;)

Everything

Weakness:

None

No, no issues, works as advertised. Excellent product. More travel and smoother action than the Joplin. 1000 miles, lots of mud and water, still works like new.

Strength:

5" travel, No lateral play, Easy to service, good customer support. Cheaper than alternatives.

Weakness:

None!

Awesome bit of kit.
I've had mine for just short of two years now, I have no rotational movement, and no fore/aft play. The motion is always silky smooth, the post is simple to service and doesn't require servicing all that often.
When I did have a problem with the lever sticking, one quick email to Pure-Racing and they had the post back for repair and service, free of charge and with a quick turn around.
Great post, cheaper than it's rivals but still better than them, great customer support, what more can anyone want?!!

Strength:

Simple to use. Plenty travel. Price.

Weakness:

Horizontal play. Bum bump to activate. Cannot have Sella Italia Ti in horizontal position, adjuster doesn't have enough angle.

Tied to service the thing per the manual. Pictures differed with reality. Since couldn't move post undid the next seal and the thing exploded. Asked Pure Racing UK what to do and they were as helpful as a flat tire on a drop!

Strength:

....cheaper than the competition

Weakness:

Develops side to side play same as the others.
Needs serviced every few rides.
Crap seat clamp.
Mine now needs pulled up as the shaft is gouged.

Im sending it back for a replacment, if im allowed i will make up the difference to get another CB joplin. The inners eventually gouges the moving shaft making the post sticky (needs pulled up), and the side to side play is twice the swing of my CB. I only bought the KSi900 as the CB i had didnt fit my new frame.

Strength:

Cheaper than the competition, 5" of adjustability, MINIMAL side to side play, look great

Weakness:

MINIMAL side to side play, a bit expensive, seatpost head loosen and need to be tightened up every two ride

First I must say that I simply love being able to drop the saddle without stoping the bike. This thing work well and the 5" is enough even if I would not like to have less travel. The minimal side to side play(1-3mm at the tip of the saddle) is not noticeable while on the bike. The only downside is that I regularly need to tighten up the bolt for the seat clamp. This is the only creaking part on my bike. I still think this part is a must for any freeride or all mountain bike.

Strength:

Goes up and down. Works like a charm. Lever is easy to reach. NO SIDE-TO-SIDE PLAY!!!!

Weakness:

At first it had a little stiction, but it's working just fine now.

Great product, cheaper than the competition although still a tad pricey. NO side-to-side play like every other post. I love it, and would definitely buy another one.
