Infinitely adjustable seatposts?

Do Easton's EA50 or EA70 two bolt seatposts have infinitely adjustable angle or do they have steps in the wedge like the cheap seatpost on my Trek 7300? I find myself wanting an adjustment halfway between the steps. My 4.5 Madone is infinitely adjustable and a small ajustment has made a major difference in comfort.

That is the point of having two bolts. The one bolt design is "simpler" (read cheaper to make) but requires serrations to hold it in place securely.

Both the EA50 (I have them on two bikes) and the EA70 have two-bolt "infinite" saddle tilt adjustments and are easy to set exactly where you want them. These are good value and well made.
