Nothing in the Reviews section on this seatpost, so I was looking for some feedback from those who have used it. I'm 150 lbs. and looking to use it to build up a light bike. Thanks.

I have used one now for about 2000 miles without any problems. The bolts that come with it are very delicate and I think the heads would strip easily, I wrote to them and got a couple of extra ones just in case. Some people claim the initial setup is hard, but I got mind right the first time and have had no problem with it sliping. Don't expect any extra comfort with this post, I don't feel any difference from it and the Thomson it replaced. So far I have not seen any problem with the durablity of this post.
