    Strengths:    None, this product fails to do what it's suppose to.
    Its junk.

    Weaknesses:    Everything about it. Ritchey customer service is THE worst in the industry.

    Bottom Line:   
    Could NOT get my saddle to stay in one spot. Had to adjust and dial in tilt. The worst clamping system in the industry. Torqued it to specs on middle of ride I'm nose up.
    Replaced the clamps, they gave me some crap to put on the thing to help...nothing helps. Finally sold it on CL.

    Strengths:    Price was good. Easy to adjust and set up.

    Weaknesses:    Could be a little lighter but since I only use my road bike for some easy training miles between mountain bike rides, its not that important.

    Bottom Line:   
    A better than average product for a fair price. Exactly what I expect from Ritchey.

    Strengths:    Well made like all Ritchey stuff, nice finish

    Weaknesses:    It's pretty average, not much to distinguish this from any other.

    Bottom Line:   
    Ritchey makes great gear, and this post is no exception: well made, light enough, good finish, basic design. I agree with the poster who said that one bolt designs are harder to micro adjust, but then again I haven't had this problem when adjusting the post. I got it where I wanted it first time around.

    I gotta say, I think Ti posts are more comfortable though, so that's why I give three chilis. While the Ritchey is a good post it's also average, not much oooh-ahhh factor. I think I like my Dean Ti better.

    Strengths:    easy fore-aft saddle adjustment

    Weaknesses:    difficult to make small adjustments in tilt, kinda heavy

    Bottom Line:   
    the adjustibility problebs are inherent with single bolt designs. A 2 bolt post is soo much easier to adjust, espisally for a road bike where the smallest change makes a significant difference. I put a 420mm seratpost off my mtb in place of it and it is still lighter. It's stucsturally sound, just not very user friendly.
