Does the job at a very decent price

PostedMarch 24, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Lightweight
Bought this for my 10 year old's mountain bike - bought it a couple of years ago and she's shot up so the frame is a big small and she was really struggling on longer rides. The stock seat post was pretty limited in its extension so couldn't put the saddle any higher, but the bike itself is still in excellent nick and i didn't want to get rid of it just yet. This was the perfect solution, now the saddle is the right height for her and there is plenty more left to eke the bike out for a bit longer. She is very pleased, and so am i

Poor quality product

PostedDecember 14, 2013
No, I do not recommend this product.
Cons: Poor quality
I bought this as a replacement for one that was stolen. I had problems with the seat slipping due to the poor design. Evans did refund the cost of the post, which is to their credit.

Good value and solid product

PostedOctober 28, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
I bought this post to replace one for a commuter bike. I specifically looked for a set back seatpost. I wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised and am very happy with it. it is actually much more comfortable than my existing post, I think the setback has something to do with it and with the seat set right back so that there is overhang, it absorbs quite a lot of the shock. Others have complained about the fwe logo which is in an old fashioned font. But it looks great on my bike which is retro anyway. If you don't like the logo, just rub it off with some solvent.

Pros: Good value, Good quality, Looks great
Cons: fwe logo
Was looking for a chrome/silver seat post for a project bike that i am working on and Evan's measured and ordered this post for me and it arrived in a few days. Post is long enough for my needs, feels solid and looks great with my Brooks saddle and black vintage frame bike. Only con is that there is a small black branding on the post stem which detracts from the overall clean lines.

Yes but too long for my frame

PostedAugust 22, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
For some reason the stem would only drop into my frame by about 200-250mm. This left too much of the stem sticking out for my height so I had to chop it down a bit with a hack saw.

Simple replacement for a knackered old steel post

PostedApril 12, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Lightweight
This post was to replace an old steel post that had a separate saddle mounting gizmo which kept working loose. The new one slotted right into the tube, gripped well when tightened and the saddle mount seems nice and solid.
