USE make well engineered,light and value for money seatposts. Their aftersales back up was excellent. I lost a part of the cradle when overhauling the bike. They sent me a free replacement that arrived the next day by first class post.

The seatpost works superbly on a tandem where the stoker has no warning of impending potholes and makes saddlesores and (most) arguments a thing of the past

Strength:

It work and works and works - in other words it does the job its meant to.
I am not big on maintinance! so if it works, thats great for me.

Weakness:

could be lighter, but I here the new ones are very much lighter.

I was one of the riders that thought shock posts were just for softies, but after riding over the Andes last year I know that I would have really suffered without one and with 30 mile up hills it certainly did the work on the way up as well as down. I have recommended USE shock posts to several riders and all have come back with positive feedback.

If you want to ride faster over bumpy ground - its for you.
If you just want to be able to sit down after a 500k ride over the Andes - Its for you.

just a suspension bike rather than a hard tail with a shock post. Great weight advantage and it almost does the same job but without the bobing.

Strength:

It works - smooths ride of an aluminum frame on the trail. Reasonably light for a suspension seatpost.

Weakness:

The part where the seat rails rest busted in half.I e-mailed the mfg. about getting a replacement part and got zip response. The whole seat clamp configuration is kind of funky and I don't think too reliable.

Given the poor (none) customer support and IMHO unreliable seat clamp set-up, I'd pass on this product.
