Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I’ve been cycling my entire 61. I now primarily ride a Why Cycles titanium hardtail MTB. I come from a triathlete background. I ride to a from most trail heads so I’m not only riding Colorado’s Front Range trails, but also on the road. So, my rides usually last about 3 hours of constant riding. I’ve always used Giro and been happy. This POC helmet has a better fit, looks way slimmer and just looks cool! My Oakley glasses fit nicely in the vents. Speaking of cool...the ventilation is at least equal to my Giro which actually has more vents. The entire helmet adjusts easily and movement while riding. Matt at Competitive Cyclists is a great guy to work with when deciding a purchase...try the helmet for yourself, it’s worth it!

I have an extremely nice titanium hardtail MTB. Looking to match my carbon RF Next Bars and RF Stem I researched this specific post. I saw in the description it came with a rubber grommet to help seal up the frame. I liked that as well as the Carbon Next post to match my other components. I had been leaning towards a Thomson seatpost for the obvious reasons. I ordered the RC Next post and it got here quickly. The box appeared to have opened before and sure enough it had. The post I received appeared to have been installed on another bike and did not come with a rubber grommet. I called and CC was happy to immediately ship me out a new post before returning the right! I received he the RF Next post...this post had never been installed, but no rubber grommet. I called CC and they said they would contact RF themselves and inquire. I was later contacted and told RF would not be providing me a rubber grommet...pretty much end of story. At this point I don’t even know if one is needed or not? CC offers to allow me to send the second RC post back. By now its on my bike and I do not have another post to install if I were to just order the Thomson as originally planned. I did return the first post, kept the second and have ridden with it. Nice post, matches my bars with is cool. Seems well built etc etc......but no grommet and if one is mentioned in the description I would think it’s needed. I like the post it just doesn’t make me feel confident because I did not get what was described and what I feel that I paid for...
