Strengths:    Looks, reliability, strength, lightness, price

Weaknesses:    Black, not available in shorter length

Bottom Line:   
I have one of the early model, 26.8mm EA50's (with the single bolt). At 264g, it has been a very supportive, light seatpost. I believe it has actually served to re-inforce my frame, and that the 350mm length has played a part in that. I ride a Raleigh Technium, and the EA50 made the seat-tube noticeably stiffer. I don't know why Easton went to a 2-bolt design, because the single bolt has always worked perfectly. Easton doesn't seem to give much information on their proprietary aluminum, but their stuff is always good. I believe my post is a 9 or 10mm offset. I paid about 40 dollars for the post back in 2000-or-so, and have used it ever since. No need to ever upgrade. I love components that get it right the first time.
