    Never understood why people have a preference for one seat post over another with the exception of droppers. It came stock on my blackborrow and seems to do what it was supposed to do.

    Pros
    It holds my seat up
    It's really shiny and sparkly

    I've had various sizes of the Thomson Elite post and never had a single issue out of them. The clamp/bolts are very strong, and the machining is dead sexy.

    Pros
    Strong. 2 bolt clamp. Many sizes

    Cons
    Heavy compared to posts of similar price.

    Best seatpost I've ever used. Not the lightest, but i've never bent one of these or broken the saddle mount, which i've done on other posts. I've purchased one of these for all of my bikes have never regretted it. Other reviews state the bolts are hard to tighten for the saddle (they are). I use a ball driver (allen wrench with a rounded head), and this becomes a non-issue.

    Pros
    Strong
    Saddle mount is easily adjustable

    Cons
    None

    Great alloy seat post. Highest quality alloy post you may fine...also one of the most expensive but it's worth it.

    Pros
    -Superior quality compared to all other seat posts
    -Light weight
    -Bomb proof

    Cons
    -Hardware is tricky to adjust when installing saddle

    A strong seatpost if aluminum is your thing. Not bad looking and wont scratch. Just wish the bolts were easier to get to and work on.

    Pros
    Strong and light

    Cons
    The bolts are a pain to work on with a ratchet. Expensive.

    Hands down, best for the money seatpost. Buy one and forget about your post.

    Pros
    Everything. Value, durable, easy setup, wide variety of angles, lengths and diamaters.

    Cons
    Black paint can scratch.

    Love this post. Strong and light just not cheap. Like Bontrager said strong, light and cheap now pick 2.

    Pros
    My favorite post so far. Light and extremely strong. Quality is off the charts. The tube taper makes for a flexible yet strong post.

    Cons
    The price is rather high for an alloy post.

    Lightweight, durable
