I purchased this seatpost because it has an intermediate setback (12mm), is relatively light, and was in stock. I have hit two issues with it. The first issue is the front mounting bolt was too short for use with my Selle SMP saddle. This saddle requires the rail to be at an incline. The provided bolts only allow level and decline. I had to purchase a longer 40mm titanium bolt for the front. Installing the new bolt required inserting a wooden dowel into the end of the post to hold the threaded part inside while rethreading. The second issue is the torque specs for the front and rear bolts are very different (3.1 Nm front and 6.2 Nm rear). I found it impossible to set each torque without either increasing the saddle incline or inducing excess torque on the front bolt. In the end, I had to use a reduced torque value on the rear, 4 Nm. Hope it holds. In general, I think the saddle mounting arrangement needs rethinking.
