Who has experience with these lightweights? I believe the U.S.E. is around 130 grams (crazy) where the Corima is ~160g very aero but needs shims to fit a 27.2mm seat tube. this is gonna drop near a quarter of a pound from my Ultegra seat post and I'm pretty tempted. Stoopid-light? Issues? I usually weigh 155 - 160 lbs. Any experience appreciated. Thanks.

One of the guys who works @ the bike shop w/me put the USE alien carbon post on his Al Bianchi. He claimed it smoothed the ride more than the Spox wheelset he rode for a month. It is crazy lite, the clamp seemed questionable, but as long as the bolt tension is even all is well. He is 5'10, weighs 170 or so.

My Corima Ellipse is allowing the seat to tilt back on every ride, no matter how much I tighten the thing. I have a U.S.E. ordered to replace the Corima.
