The best post I've ever used. I have the Evolve and Deus and both are excellent seat posts. The ability to adjust tilt and position entirely independently is a marvelous feature. The price on the Fleabay one is a bit high, however. I've seen them for less including this one for $22 . More normal price seems to be around $35 for the Evolve.

Race Face posts are quality bits. Their clamp make it easy to set up saddle angle.
