No, but I'd buy it, you can't go wrong for $15 and it looks nice.

I don't have space...unless it's really worth something

Which I doubt, because it's been for sale off and on for months...

If you do buy it you have to put a Hite Rite on it ...

Does anyone here actually do this:
"Serious riders open the quick release seat bolt, grab the saddle between their knees, lower it and close the bolt..."

The things ya never knew you were screwing up!

Bob H: I thought of the same thing! In fact, when I first saw the thread title I thought it said hite rite instead of rite hite.

East Hill: there was a time when the hite rite was thought of as the best thing since sliced bread in the world of mountain biking. Joe Breeze came up with them, I think. I never owned one, and think they're kind of ridiculous myself. The fact that they're not popular anymore (or even made) says it all, I think-

I did wonder when the last statement said "Hite Rites are not made any longer".

I still have them on my retro MTBs. I like the look (and the functionality is not completely a bad idea). They also make a bit of a theft deterrent for those real quick saddle grabbers while you're in the 7/11 as your seatpost is anchored to your Q/R bolt. I hate losing a Brooks ...
