    Strengths:    Strong, light, lively, Ti.

    Weaknesses:    Cheap decals. Mine are all gone. Actually looks better now.

    Bottom Line:   
    It's a nice post that has a great microadjustability. It is strong but lively which is the best attribute of Ti. I had this post originally on my Ti MTB but moved it over to my carbon road bike to give the super stiff frame some life. Since I got the MTB version (same post, just longer), it is a little heavy. I supposed I can cut it down to shave some weight but I'll get to that when I get to that.

    Strengths:    Sturdy post that feels great and stays adjusted with the micro head. Superlative customer service.

    Weaknesses:    Heavy compared to carbon, pricey. Decals are stickers and come off unless you're real careful with them.

    Bottom Line:   
    Real nice post. Beautiful finish. I overtightened a bolt and it snapped. I sent the post back to Dean and they refinished it and fitted replacement bolts for free. Can't beat that for customer support. Great product for what it is but weight weenies will want carbon. Dean does make a lightweight post that might satisfy the weenies.

The cost is about the same for both items but I'd like people's opinions on ... Read More »

    First question; Can a seatpost bracket create a bent titanium saddle rail? Had one Specialized saddle with titanium rails that bent, returned this for another. The replaced saddle still looks OK, but purchased a different saddle, also with titanium rails, this one does appear slightly bent. I ... Read More »
