    Is the U.S.E Sumo seatpost any good?

    http://www.use1.com/products/rigid_s...923_102158.php

    claimed Weight: 184g (30.9 / 300mm), so a 27.2 should be lighter.

    didn't you ask about setback?
    that one seems to have VERY little of it...

    I only need a little bit, and also a seat post that has a bigger clamping area. I need to avoid this again...



    No point buying another new saddle to have a repeat of it again.

    Same thing happened to me with that same combo. It now has fully broken through on a ride. Luckily, the rails are quite thick, and it didn't leave a mark on my butt!!!!

    Hey guys I have that same saddle and thought about getting this post. Did the rails bend by tightening down the clamps, or downward force from sitting on it

    Thanks!

    From sitting on it. The bolts were torqued to the indicated 4 Nm.
