The Easton EA50 Seatpost gets a sleek new look and even lower price.
Like last year's model, the simple two-bolt head offers a secure clamp with easy adjustability. EA50 Aluminum is slightly heavier than its pricier counterparts yet offers rock solid durability, and the 10mm setback is a nice middle ground to fit most riders.
Available in 27.2, 30.9 and 31.6mm diameters, 350mm length.

I just finished installing this seatpost as part of an off-season tear-down maintenance. If you get one, you need to back out the adjusting bolts to the same length, rock the radial underside of the saddle clamp in the radial ï¿½receiverï¿½ on the top of the seatpost to where you want your saddle to sit, then start tightening down the adjusting bolts while holding the whole assembly in place. There is nothing about this in the instructions (a problem that the bicycle industry has worn with a perverse sort of pride since I started cycling seriously in the 70ï¿½s). Clunky installation, but it has, in the short time Iï¿½ve been using it, proven to be a very good bang-for-the-buck product.
The seat post functions fine. There is no issue with saddle movement and can be adjusted to the exact angle that you need. The only negative is the front screw adjustment is a bit challenging if you plan on using a multi-tool allen wrench. The screw is very close to the seat post so the post will interfere with the tool when adjusting. A single piece L-shape allen wrench works best for adjusting.
I'm a fan of the two bolt, frontback, adjustment on seat posts. This is often only found expensive seat posts. This is a great combo of the two bolt adjustment setup on a mid-range post.
