    I Beam seatpost ~ anyone actually like it?

    So far I am not a fan of it because I have to carry my big hydration pack to have somewhere for my tools. Not to mention I can't put my nice broken in saddle on my Prophet. I'll be swapping back to a traditional seatpost

    nope

    it was the most uncomfortable set up I've ever used. I realized how much a saddle's rails make a difference. I think the Kore seat could work since it's kinda suspended.

    I had the SDG FRD saddle and I paid the price for lightness.

    Nope, couldn't stand the one on my prophet. I chunked it and went with a trusty Thomson post with a specialized seat...

    Apart from looking kind of different/cool... I don't really like mine.

    1. Unless you have the SDG Attachment you can't attach a seatbag
    2. On long rides, It hurts.

    -> SDG Bel Air SL

    Nope - dont like it, for all of the above.

    The SDG does'nt fit me either.

    Is there really much of a weight saving over a standard setup?

    Since I can't sleep I'm working on my bike ~ that is the first thing I changed!
    I didn't know if I wasn't giving it a fair chance but I see I'm not alone.

    Mines great. It lives in amongst all my rubbish in my shed and will stay there forever and a day. Thomson and selle slr are the winners for me.

    Was a little slippery the first couple of rides but it's fine now. Don't see any reeason to C
    change it.
    Attaching a seat bag was simple. There is a threaded hole on the bottom of the seat. Drilled a small hole in a piece of plastic and burned a small hole in the top of my seat bag. Put old cleat bolt thru plastic, slide plastic into bag and screw into threaded hole under seat. I like it better then the old straps on the rails.
