Model/Year: 2008ish

Pros: Holds a seat

Cons: CREAKS, CREAKS, AND CREAKS SOME MORE. Getting a new post just to stop this madness

Recommendation: Buy something else. No reason to get this one

Model/Year: 2009

Pros: Light weight, cool design, endless adjustment angles.

Cons: Powder Coat seems to be fading.

Recommendation: I absolutely love this seat post. I had to sell the bike that it was on would have transferred it to the next bike if the tubes were the same size. I will be buying one for my new bike as well.

Model/Year: 2009

Pros: Easy adjustment
Independent adjustment of fore/aft and tilt
Large diameter for strength

Cons: Doesn't help push me up the hills

Recommendation: Came with my new (to me) Giant Trance X2, and the first thing I noticed was the separate adjustment of tilt and location. That is a HUGE benefit and step up from my Truvativ seatpost on my Focus.

Definitely going to keep this piece around for as long as I can.

Pros: Great Design

Cons: None

Recommendation: The adjustment on this is key. You can adjust the angle separately from the position of the saddle. It is quite amazing. This also means when swapping saddles, there is no need to fiddle with the angle again.

Pros: Just like the Next SL this shares the same head which allows independant adjustment of the tilt and fore and aft movement.

Cons: none

Recommendation: You can find this on line for a great price and this seatpost works great, at 245g it is also really light.
