Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Ordered the post in December since it was well reviewed and a 'great' price. However, it only has ~15 rides and it's bent. For reference, I'm a fairly tall/large guy so the post was extended close to the 'minimum insertion' line (never over extended) and I'm riding full suspension on moderate/difficult single track trails. I recommend shopping for a more durable post if you ride technical trails.
GOOD: - 31.6mm x 375mm fit frame, no issues with slippage as long as quick release was tight. - No issues with ordering/shipping, the product was received promptly. - The seat clamp did an excellent job of keeping the seat at the proper position/angle (applied blue loctite to keep the bolts in place).
I had bought one of those cheap carbon posts here on Amazon that came shipped from China and ended up crashing when the post suddenly broke on the first ride out. I ended up returning it and just using the credit to buy a heavier, less-blingy aluminum post. Race Face products get the job done and I'd rather have the peace of mind knowing that my saddle isn't going to pop off under me.
HEAVY duty, more heavy than duty. The post body is made of thick heavy alloy. The top bolts howver, are very skinny. I'm sure it'll hold the seat rail fine, but it's definitely not what you want if you want something light.
I bought this because: It's relatively inexpensive for a "Race Face" part. But $25 for a seat post is not that cheap. Amazon prime means I get this in 2 days for a project. I top of the post is stright, meaning for a kid bike I'm building where the seat post needs to be dropped all the way down, this will work. most other seatposts will widen or narrow at the top, making seat height higher because the clamp won't hold. This on the other hand will let the seat sit near the end of the seat tube, good for shorter riders.
If you want something cheaper or lighter, Truvativ posts are lighter and not much more money. fleabay CVhinese Carbon posts are super light and sells for about the same cost as this, but shipping can...
