Description

WCS Carbon 1-Bolt Seatpost

Drawing on Ritchey's extensive heritage in cyclocross racing, the WCS Carbon Seatpost brings dependability, simplicity, and elegant aesthetics to your 'cross or gravel steed. The refined carbon construction ensures a high strength-to-weight ratio, while the 1-Bolt SideBinder seat clamp eliminates the frustration of finicky 2-bolt designs. Secured by a single 5mm bolt, the SideBinder offers ease of adjustability while at the same time relieving stress on saddle rails.

  • A carbon fiber masterpiece designed for 'cross or gravel steeds
  • Monocoque carbon construction is strong and lightweight
  • Single-bolt head is secure and very easy to adjust
  • Includes clamp for standard 7 x 7mm saddle rails
  • Clamp kit for carbon fiber saddle rails sold separately

Alloy version WCS 1-bolt Seatpost

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit:
True to size

Identical except for basic material, I can only address the 1-bolt mounting system. Very clever and very easy to adjust once you have the pieces assembled. I would suggest mounting the saddle to the post with the post removed from your frame. I purchased a new Ritchey Streem Ti saddle at the same time and first impressions of both are highly favorable.

This is the worst designed seat post clamp ever. I should have taken the warning from my LBS seriously. My LBS would not even take the time to put on. They said too much of a PIA. They were right. It requires two people to get a saddle attached. Finally got one but I took back off. Going to return it. I don’t want a seat post that required this much effort.

I have two of these posts. Yes, they can be tricky to mount, but by backing out the mount screw to the very edge, I was able to slide the seat into the mount front first and get it into the rail mounts. I love this seat post. Once the saddle is on, it is infinitely adjustable and it is lighter than anything else you can find at the $200 price point.

I have the alloy version of this seatpost and really like it. I found it relatively easy to fit my saddle to the post and once all of the pieces are in place, it is very easy to position the saddle. One bolt and it is easily accessible. I would suggest assembling the saddle to the post with the post removed from your frame. I can see how it would be a little tricky to put the post in the frame first.
