    Strength:

    Looks cool (thats pretty sad).

    Weakness:

    Flexy, creaks so much I'm about to go insane.

    This seat creakes like a mother. I've tried greasing it, oiling it, lubing it. Nothing works, and it's a pain in the ears. Also, it's not very stiff, and all of my 135 pounds makes it flex. It looks cool though.

    Strength:

    solid and easy to adjust clamp

    Weakness:

    it bends, flexy

    Other than the bend, a very decent seatpost. Easily adjusted, never loosened or creaked, and even looks kinda cool. Unfortunately, I'm 165 lbs. and my skinny @ss has bent this post. I ride it hard, but that's no excuse for a seatpost bending in less than a year.

    Strength:

    Adjustability, relatively light

    Weakness:

    It's bent

    Not sure which model of Interloc - it worked fine - a bit too springy to my liking - but it made for a plush ride.
    I liked this seatpost's adjustability - I had to re-tighten the bolts once, but unfortunatley it has now suffered the same fate as my previous $10-20 seatposts - they bend too easily under my weight.
    If you're a lightweight this could be the seatpost for you - if you tend to bend 'em, look elsewhere - this one will bend too.

    Strength:

    Adjustability, great clean looks

    Weakness:

    None that I've found

    Man if the other reviewer bent his Interloc post more power to him. Mine has absolutely no give whatsoever and I weigh 180lbs. The post is solid and tough. I used to own an old school Syncros Hardcore post that I loved and this post is easily as strong and the Interloc post is better made (IMHO). I would not call myself a "light" rider and I've put the post through a ton of abuse. This is one good product. Buy it if you have a hard butt though, I've never had this post give.

    Strength:

    adjustable, looks pretty cool

    Weakness:

    i bent it

    Im going to buy another one because they are cheap. its a fine seatpost, its not like its a real high performance part. i guess it could be a little stronger, im about 120 lbs. and i bent it yesterday off a 12' drop when i slipped a pedal so its quite understandable that it bent. its cheap and looks cool. would work fine for xc or dh, as long as you dont slam on it too hard, go buy one.
