As I have already stated this is an amazingly easy seatpost to adjust or swap a saddle with, and you can pop out a 5mm hex key, and adjust the saddle on the trail. I tested the layback version of the Sweetpost, since I like that position on my bike, and it also gives a tad more give or flex than a straight version. I hate to call the micro suspension and silky feel that titanium gives as flex, since that always has a bad connotation. Titanium has this unique property that is simply a silky feeling to itself, so even though you can hammer on it, when needed it gives you this silky feedback that is a wonder to behold or is that beheld? It is strong and resilient!
The Sweetpost is abundant in silkiness, and was really nice on bumpy trails and when climbing rough terrain, it just took the edge off the jarring feedback from the trail. When pushed hard for a pedal to the metal session, the Sweetpost was more than stiff enough.
If you have odd size rails on your saddle, such as carbon ones, you may not be able to fit them into the tight tolerances of the slots on the clamp. It expects the standard 7mm thickness for rails. Eriksen can accommodate larger rails as a custom option. The clamp plates/cap also has a large surface area in which they hold onto the rails, giving rise to better clamp force and fewer wear and tear on the rails.
