Strength:

Light, Gives good ride comfort, east to install and adjust, like the trendy style that suited my bike build, got it cheap at a clearance price - less than its alloy equivalent.

Weakness:

None

I have this stem fitted to its maximum height and have experienced no problems - 83kg rider.
It has been observed from riders following me that it flexes from side to side in sequence to my pedal strokes, so I guess this is what makes it comfortable.

I want to like this post badly. I can't though as all I hear when I ride it is creaking from the adjustment pivots. I thought it was my saddle going bad so I bought a new one. Same exact creak. Lord save me from this noise! Called customer service and they offered no help except to try lubing the pivots.

I have put this seatpost through a year of XC racing and riding and have had no trouble what so ever. It's still going strong. The adjustments this seatpost offers is amazing and allows you to quickly and accurately dial in a comfortable riding position. Adjusting the angle of the seat is a breeze and the degree indicator on the post really helps you find the right angle. I will purchase another if I ever need to.

Strength:

Weight, adjustability, design

Weakness:

Scale is vanishing

I've been riding on this post for the past 2 years, no problem or what so ever. needs a bit attention (cleaning) since carbon on carbon can lead to kind of hard to adjust seat height.
The only problem is that the scale is printed on the post and has vanished with the time, it's hard to find the exact position again. Else it's extremely stable, I'm pretty heavy 190 pounds.
