Sturdy Post, One Piece Design A Plus
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I installed this on my hybrid bike, replacing a heavy, clunky OEM post that had limited notchy saddle pitch detents. This post was very easy to install, although the front bolt location makes it hard to turn the bolt more than a quarter turn at a time, and I couldn’t fit a 1/4” metric socket onto the bolt. I just tightened the front bolt snugly with a std Allen wrench, then torqued the rear bolt to the recommended 7nm, which also further tightens the front bolt.
Weight a bit heavy, but my hybrid already has fenders and a rear rack, so I don’t think I’ll notice the extra few grams compared with more expensive posts.
Solid, good looking, and a great value.
