    Salsa Shaft 'post -- ya or nay?

    The reviews seem to be split about 50/50, so any comments are appreciated.

    The Shaft looks good because I'm want a post with and offset micro-adjusting clamp (no serrations), and ideally, independent fore/aft and tilt adjustments.

    I got rid of mine because it was really prone to creaking when dust would sneak into all of the metal interfaces. Drove me nuts.

    I have 3 of them...

    and have yet to experience any problems. I am much bigger (6ft 2in, 250 lbs w/o gear) than the average mtbker so the shaft's strength is top notch . the only downside is that the finish is not as durable as say, a thomson. It dosnt cost as much either though.

    240lb without gear. Creaking/clicking drove me nuts. Paid $65.00 and gave away for free. No problem with strength, just noise.Thomson was the quite answer. Hope that helps!

    Buy it

    I got one and its sweet. 400mm works great on a 16" frame. Precision adjustment, no creaks. AEbike.com had the best price.

    I don't have many miles on mine yet since it is on my Pugsley and we haven't had much for snow in MN yet. The one knock on mine is that the angle adjustment goes from nose pointed straight up to barely flat. I am more of a nose slightly down guy and didn't have the range to do this.

    I was wondering about this. I've read that it can be an issue on frames with slack seat tube angles.
