Strengths:    easy adjustment
full carbon


Weaknesses:    Colours not neutral enough, makes the post stand out in an unaesthetic manner
Too pricey


Bottom Line:   
Okay seatpost, but at that price, many other brands do just as fine. I find it rather heavy, it's Bontrager's xxx-lite, and my post weighs 229 grams. That is not extra-extra-extra-lite IMHO.
Good solid feel to it, easy, no, very easy adjustment, I have had nothing but good experiences with this post.
Too much red decals for the post to fit anything else but redish colours on bike.

Strengths:    carbon looks cool. easy to adjust and load seat

Weaknesses:    will not tighten.
very dangerous.


Bottom Line:   
This post came witha Tete de Course I bought on Ebay. Both the frame and post were in great shape and showed little use. It slips like crazy and can't be tightened. I was riding with out hands and leaned back while drinking from a bottle. The post slipped back and I almost slid onto my read wheel.

I have also seen this post do this in a MTB race. NOT RECOMMENDED!!

Does anyone have any long term experience with these. I picked up a set at a significant discount. I know that the 2010 have moved away from the paired spoke design but the new ones when they become available will be considerably more $$$. I am referring to the 2008 model with the white spoke ...
