on eBay, among other places, i've seen these 2-in-1 seat/seatpost comboes. are they actually decent? the fact that the joint between seat and post is plastic worries me, but they seem like such a good idea.

They're made for racing, and I wouldn't recommend them for anything other. They make a junior version which has a plastic post and a pro one which is the same thing but with an aluminum post.
