    Anyone have one? How is the post? Do the clamps slip as I have read a couple reviews on? I would like this post to match my other Ritchey components, but do not want a post that slips or tilts after tightened down. Thanks in advance.

    Absolutely, without a doubt the worst seatpost I have ever used.
    One plus - it looks nice.
    Negative. No matter how tight, when I would hit a bump the saddle would immediately go from being parallel to the ground to pointing upwards at a 30 degree angle. In other words, it tilts.

    Interestingly enough, when I read cyclingnews.com updates I sometimes see that pros have this happen as well. When I find out who they are, they are pro teams sponsored by Ritchey. So evidently they have this problem too!

    A seatpost has ONE purpose...to hold the saddle. If it can't do that well, then.....

    I switched to a Thomson and have never looked back.

    Did you have an older model? I remember reading somewhere that something was corrected at some point in time.
