Worth the hype
Did I need to spend money on a new seatpost? I thought the answer was "no" as I had a functional seatpost. Was I excited about losing some grams? In principle, until I realized that I probably could drop weight by cleaning out excess junk from my bag. I bought anyway based on faith in the blog posts and was AMAZED at the difference in my ride. The titanium has a different feel/flex than steel and has smoothed out my ride on the variably-maintained roads in my region. Was not expecting such a difference and am extremely happy. Also, even the slight reduction in weight of the unladen bike has turned out to be noticable, so that's another plus.
