Strength:

Cheap. Micro-adjusts. Reasonably light, especially since I cut the length down a bit.

Weakness:

Gradually slips, until the saddle nose is pointin' up and puttin' too much pressure on the boys.

Bought it for the micro-adjustment. It didn't cost too much, it doesn't weigh too much ... and it doesn't hold. No matter how much you crank down the bolt, jiggle the seat back and forth and crank it down again to make sure it's tight, it still starts to slip after a few miles. Before long the nose is higher than the tail and the boys are getting squeezed.

No budget for a Thomson, so I guess I'm getting the Salsa.

Strength:

It's kinda light, I got it because I needed any seatpost for a race, cus my bonty broke.
Nice color, goes well with the bike

Weakness:

tad heavy, scratchy

Good seatpost, if you can still find it, you should buy it...heavier riders should stick to a fatter kind. for a buck from my friend, i'd say I got a pretty good deal

Strength:

Strong
Not too heavy
Cheap

Weakness:

Nothing that I can think of.

A truly awesome post for the money. I paid $19 at the local shop. I bought it about 6 months ago when I got my new Specialized saddle. Unfortunatly, I wrecked it when I landed a 2 foot drop-off wrong. I had it extended pretty far and I am no lightweight (220lbs), so I am not really mad. Not to mention that it wasn't the first time I had messed up a jump on that post. That isn't all that was damaged though...*cough*. But, I am gonna run out and buy another one tomorrow at the shop, because for those six months it rocked. And at 19 bux, it's a steal. If I could I would give it more than 5 for the value, but since it did bend, even under the aformentioned circumstances, I can't in my right mind give it a 5... more like a 4.8...

Strength:

Extra long, sturdy, nice lookin'

Weakness:

It seems to scratch easily

Strong and not overly heavy. The best dael in the world for under 30 bucks. I don't know how it handles under much weight, but for my 130 lbs. its steady as a rock. The bolt stays tight and the 410mm is expecialy nice.
i would definatly reccomend this post for and cross county racer who want's quality on a budget.For everybody who can afford a more expensive one, I would think twice and buy aviner and save 70 bucks.

Strength:

inexpensive, simple, 425MM,

Weakness:

scratches easy

The cheapest 425mm seatpost I came across.
All the other posts with two bolt seat stays broke and were always a pain to adjust, along ride on my thudbuster and I felt I'd been kicked in the nutz...

Strength:

Price, and light weight

Weakness:

It broke in half after two years. Also the plastic adjuster is useless once its gets dirty

This seatpost did everything it was supposed to do for two years -- until it broke. I weigh 175 and did have the post extended almost to it max--but it broke while pedaling up hill. I never had any problems with the seat coming lose or anything like that. I think it is the same post as the Zoom microset (it has Zoom stamped on the post). 3 chilis (or flaming dead horses) because it did break.

Strength:

Light weight and cheap

Weakness:

I broke my first one after two years of riding it--into tow pieces right in the middle of the shaft--while climbing!!! I wanted to ride the next day and this was the only 26.8 post my local bike shop had. Well after two years of riding the second one. It is now severely bent.

It also creaks from time to time

It's light and cheap. It is the same post as the Zoom microset (which has horrible reviews). Don't even risk buying this post.
