Campagnolo Chorus Titanium Post any good? Thanks!FL_Rider

I have a MOOTS on my MTB but lokking for one for my Road Bike. Any comments on this one? I love my MOOTS, but need a cheaper for the road.

Thoughts? Worth getting?

Thanks!

two bolts are better...C-40

Rode a Campy Ti post for a season and it worked fine, but two-bolt designs allow much finer adjustment of the saddle angle and fore/aft adjustment without disturbing the angle.

My favorites are the Selcof CNC or the ITM Millenium (in carbon or Al). The Millenium carbon is about $90 and the Al version about $60 at www.txcyclesport.com.

I second the selcof suggestion. they're definitely cooler than the campy, plus they have a two bolt clamp. the serrations aren't a big deal on the campy post - its the weak clamping force resulting from a single bolt. 3 out of 4 seats i've used with the post slip so badly that i need locktite to keep them in place.
like it enough to have 2 of them. (nm)terry b

I use the Campy Daytona post which uses the same clamp design but with a cromoly shaft. It offers a good deal of setback and a large clamping surface. The downside is that the clamp is serrated so the seat angle is not infinitely adjustable. It won't slip but if you are picky on seat angle you may not get exactly what you want.

works well for me (at 200 lbs), and was able to get angle right w/ no slippage either...though I have heard that they scratch very easily

make sure you grease every possible contact including the seat rails. lots of grease. if you scratch it, buff with a 3m pad

Have you actually buffed one? I took mine off and put on my thomson because it looked so scratched.

Spend the extra and stick with the Moots!russw19

The head of the Chorus is bonded to the post. It can fail and snap. Look at your Moots. Won't happen there. Just save a few bux more and get the Moots. You already know how good of a post it is, why chance it with something unknown? I ride a Moots and I swear by it. Best post for the money.

There really isn't anything wrong with the Chorus post, but there isn't anything wrong with a Thompson either, and it's cheaper than the Chorus. But there is everything right about a Moots, right down to the little sticker of the gator riding a bike.
