    Strengths:    ride quality (that's why I bought it), reliability, ease of use. and it looks good.

    Weaknesses:    haven't discovered any...

    Bottom Line:   
    this is for the chorus ti seatpost...record is now carbon. the other reviews are old, so here's a new one.

    I bought this post, put it on my bike, adjusted my saddle position and height,
    and haven't touched it since (except once to remove it and apply a little grease.) ridden it about 2500 miles.

    its been great, looks great, and presented no problems. I would recommend it.

    Strengths:    One bolt design, vibration absorbtion, and strength with small amount of flex.

    Weaknesses:    Scratches easily.

    Bottom Line:   
    I have used the seatpost on my trainer for two months and on the road for four months. I weigh about 195lbs and this product has worked great. I bought the seatpost under the 2001 Chorus name. I love the one bolt design for ease of saddle adjustment. A minor downside is how quickly the post gets scratched.

    Strengths:    relatively light, but very very comfortable. It look great.

    Weaknesses:    None

    Bottom Line:   
    This post will make a huge difference as far as comfort and yet not too flexy..Buy it if your looking for a grea post. as a matter of fact buy the 2001 Campy chorus Ti and save some $$. It's the same as the 00 record ti.

    Strengths:    Looks great, easy to adjust

    Weaknesses:    Clamping mechanism, marks easily

    Bottom Line:   
    I have had problems with this seatpost. The bottom part of the clamp has broken in exactly the same way (and been replaced under warranty) 4 times in two years. I don't overtighten or use an unusual saddle position, or hit potholes - each breakage has been on flat roads. Luckily no injuries, and always able to get home. The part is clearly a poor design, with serrations at the narrowest and most highly-stressed section. I have since replaced the post with an excellent WR-Compositi carbon. The rest of the Record Groupset is top quality.

    Strengths:    Light weight, beautifully crafted, typical Campy quality.

    Weaknesses:    Inner threaded sleeve in top clamp piece.

    Bottom Line:   
    Loved this post for since I bought it, until recently. In the top section of the seat clamp there is an internally threaded sleeve that threads into the clamp and effectively reduces the internal diameter of the clamp to match the diameter of the bolt. I don't know why they didn't just use a larger diameter bolt and omit the need for this sleeve. Anyway, the thing worked it's way out, I can't get it back in, and now I'm in search of a top clamp piece that will work with the bolt that came with the post.
