    Easton EA70 vs Race Face Evolve seatpost

    Hi,
    I've been looking for a new seatpost to replace my stock one, and have narrowed it down to either the 2010 Race Face Evolve or 2010 Easton EA70 offset. Anyone have any experience with either of these? Reviews online are about 50% negative for both, which is sorta good considering most seatposts are lucky to get even 25% positive reviews.
    Bike is for commuting, light trails. I would get the Thomson but I'm not fond of the way the setback looks.

    EA70 has two bolt adjustment for nice micro saddle adjustments. JensonUSA has some EA70's on sale if that is the size you need. Just be aware the setback on EA70 is only 10mm so make sure that will work for you.

    I think the old EA70 reviews were for the 1 bolt post which was a PITA.

    I have an older Easton EA70 one bolt. Pain to set saddle, but once you get it in place, no problem. You might take a look at a Ritchey Pro. You can dial in the tilt. Not as easy as they claim but you can get the tilt exactly where you want it.

    I forgot about the Salsa Shaft. Probably the most overlooked seatpost out there. iI is a tad bit heavy and not the nicest looking seatpost on the market. Independent fore-aft/tilt adjustment. I had one once and messed with the setting so often when my old bike was new, I rounded out one of the bolts.
