Strengths:    Very strong, light, simple, attractive, will last for ever, great vibration dampening properties.

Weaknesses:    Campy doesn't make it anymore. Surely they must realize that alloy is so yesterday and harsh for a seat post, and that there are a lot of riders who prefer steel frames.

Bottom Line:   
I put that I didn't purchase this because technically I didn't. I did however buy a new Colnago Master with a full campy record groupo in August of 2005, which of course came with the Campy record carbon seat post, which of course didn't work on the Colnago Master steel frame!. As it is steel, and should therefore be treated on the inside to prevent rust from developing on the tubes, I found that no matter how tight I cranked the seat post binder bold, the post would slip. So, I set out to see what was out there, not knowing that Campy had made a ti seat post. I went to Racer Sportif and saw that they had a mint condition used one, and Denis (the owner) was more than happy to do a straight swap. That was that. No slipping, its light, same design as the carbon, just titanium, looks nice, stronger than carbon, will out last anything out there. Nuff said.

Strengths:    Campagnolo is simply the best folks. It's light, easy to adjust, beautiful to look at...........what more could you ask for?

Weaknesses:    Yea right..........

Bottom Line:   
Campy got this post right. No more 2-bolt, unreachable adjusting nightmares like thier Nuovo Record I was used to. This 1-Allen Bolt, underneath design is the cats meow. The serrated teeth and adjustable tilt are beautifully incorporated into this masterpiece. I am using a San Marco regal atop and it was far too easy to adjust and go. The garbage Titanium Bianchi Post that this is replacing was a miserable design. I could never get it tight enough or adjust enough tilt.

Strengths:    Light, strong, and adds the right amount of dampening to the sometimes painful ride my aluminum frame gives.

Weaknesses:    didn't enable me to win the Tour de France last year...otherwise, none

Bottom Line:   
I bought this to use on my aluminum frame to take some of the harshness out of longer rides and the improvement has been incredible. It was nice to shave a few grams off, too. Nice clean design and easy to adjust. Never would have thought a seatpost could make me so happy...maybe I'm spending a little too much time on the bike. Too bad the dollar is so weak cause I'm sure the price could be better for us Americans.

Strengths:    Very pretty, light, not too expensive.

Weaknesses:    Not too cheap either

Bottom Line:   
This is really a nice quality part. Noticably lighter than the stock aluminum one. Not much difference in ride quality but thats not why I got it. The toothed adjusting head makes setting tilt a hit and miss affair, although I got lucky and it works perfectly.

Chorus 11 on Ti Frame

I am installing Chorus 11 on a Merlin frame and in general using anti-seize where metal meets frame. On the bottom bracket, Merlin generally suggests both teflon tape and anti-seize together. What would be the torque value for the cups? Thanks in advance-Read More »
