Sunline V1 is good stuff
So I have spent a little over 2 months on this post and it is a great post. I have to be honest, in the last 6 years or so I have been riding I have never touched a seat post or really adjusted angles on one. I always left things as is because things were fine, but that changed one day when my Easton 30 junk post bent under me when I had got caught off balance and bumped me onto my seat. I noticed something felt funny as I continued to ride and soon enough I got off the bike to see what the heck happened. Sure enough to my amazement I saw the post was bent. I then got online and began to shop around and check reviews and it lead me to the Sun Line V1 post. With the post being discounted to a mere 35$ on chainlove.com where I frequent every 30 minutes, I did not hesitate to pull the trigger. It was a funky grey color which I wasn't crazy about but as long as it performed well at it's job I was happy. The post arrived and I was excited, it had many adjustments for seat angles, since traditional posts only offer adjustment through the seat rails, on this one you don't even need to touch it. There is one allen bolt to crack loose and then another that adjusts tilt. Once I got it where I wanted it I have been more than happy with it and has performed flawlessly and I would highly recommend to any rider, especially when some knuckleheads spend well over 100$ on snazzy posts that I can't afford.
