Strengths:    - Light
- Easy adjustments
- Looks Good
- Strong

Weaknesses:    - Be careful when using with metal frames.

Bottom Line:   
A great, light seatpost which is a breeze to adjust. On both my wife's and my trek road bike this seatpost came stock. Mine lasted years with no problems. However, hers cracked after the second ride. I believe I may have clamped it down too hard with the aluminum frame. My bikes frame is carbon and I never had such as issue. I also clamp mine down much harder than hers.

Strengths:    Nicely made, looks good, very intelligent and easily adjusted clamp design.

Weaknesses:    Nine so far.

Bottom Line:   
I just got this post, and all I can say at this point is that it is a well made post with a very intelligent clamp design. The clamp offers infinite adjustability and the fixing bolt is easy to access (from the side of the post). Its a single large allen bolt that is not likely to strip. It is by far the easiest post to adjust I've ever tried. It has a look of quality, with a nicely polished aluminium head and clear-coated carbon fiber shaft. I can't comment on comfort, because the post is on a brand new bike- a very compliant Reynolds 853 frame and comfortable Gel Flow saddle- but the bike rides like a magic carpet compared to my old Cannondale. I only have 85 miles on it, but it has held my saddle securely so far, and I don't expect that to change.

Race X Lite wheelset?

Well, I took my wobbly rear wheel to the LBS yesterday to get it trued and ...the hub is cracked! The bike's a 2002 Trek OCLV frame w/mostly Ultegra gear and a Bonty Race Lite wheelset. The hubs have since been redesigned as Bonty did away with the double-laced spokes. Bottom line: I can't just repl ... Read More »

Replacement for Bontrager Race X lite AC

For the past couple of years I have been using Bontrager Race X Lite AC tires (700x23) which I have been happy with. These are no longer available. Anybody have suggestions for a replacement? I like the durability and high TPI of the Bontragers. Red would be preferred.Read More »

New Forte Titan or Used Bontrager Race X Lite

Hi there! I'm looking to replace my front and I'm trying to choose between a new Titan Forte, which is the house-brand for performance bike, and a used 2005 Race X Lite. I think they're about the same weight (~750g). They're both $60. My main question is: What sort of life-span do wheels ha ... Read More »
