Tywrenchosaurous Rex Every in-line seat post has its own idiosyncrasies. I've had several brands over the years that each bring their own twist on the clamping mechanism. I found that the Deda was surprisingly easy to adjust. The seat post is the type where you have to guess at the right number of turns on the front thumb screw so that the saddle is level when the rear bolt is torqued to spec (5 Nm). Normally this type of system forces you into a back and forth iteration to find just the right number of turns on the thumb screw but I was surprised how quickly I was able to tune the saddle level with the Deda. Maybe I got lucky but I don't think so. I think the Deda is easier to tune than most. The rail clamps seem beefier than the ones on the seat post it is replacing so here's hoping it goes the distance on my CX bike.
Mr Morwood Quality seat post , great value . I do believe it has made the bike feel more comfortable!
Andy Great quality, very light and improved comfort compared to my old alloy seat post.
Mr Brentley Super happy with this post - delivery by Merlin to the UAE quick and all packaging in perfect condition. Great value carbon post.
Mr Merritt Deda kit is always good.This carbon post adds a bit of comfort flex to the sest post.
Jackson Fantastic seat post, would strongly recommend
Steven This thing is super light and very easy to adjust the saddle angle once you get used to how it works. Sleek design and way better price than the big carbon brands
stuart Super easy to adjust making angle setups a doddle. Surprising low saddle clamp tension
Mr Moya Algaba Ligereza, comodidad y construcción de calidad. La mejor tija posible al precio encontrando en Merlin Cycles.
Miss Tosto Very elegant design. Light and robust!
Mr hull Nice uncomplicated seat post , very easy to adjust , Merlin service excellent as ever
APOLONIO Very easy to set up can be easily adjusted to the saddle position and very light weight.
yg Awesome seat post. Needed this to complete the Colnago master build.
BikeRida It is light. Micro adjustments are possible for the seat angle. Expect it to be a little complicated on first install.
Marc Duperron Very happy about this new seatpost, pretty rigid though, absorb quite well the bumps of the road
PEACE light & have enough flexibility on a rough road condition
Cyberbiker Really nice seat post, nice finish. I needed a zero offset post. I don't really like the thumb adjuster mechanism because I find it a bit fiddly but it hasn't been a problem as such. I would buy again its good value for the weight saving above a standard seat post.
cyan Top quality and very light
Mr Tse Very light. The 1-bolt clamp system is easy and fast assembly.
pczajk Just perfect! Well design, Easy to adjust, lightweight stuff..
scott Excellent seatpost, well designed, light and aesthetically it looks great. Does reduce road vibration a little more than alloy ( but so would larger tyres and lower pressure) great service from Merlin and the use of loyalty credit made this a bargain
Mark Really nice seatpost, feels a lot smoother than the one supplied with my bike and a lot lighter!
Dr Ramli The seatpost came assembled in its original box and manual. It didn't take long to mount it on the bike and test in a short ride. Definitely impressed with the product, and Merlin's price. It is difficult to get in my country, so I'm glad I can now mail-order components direct from Merlin UK
T1000 Had a Deda seat post with setback, but wanted to move forward a bit. This is a great post with easy micro adjustment, looks great too
Ric Awesome post. My delivered 31.6mm post is 192gm.This post is 81gm lighter than the 'carbon' post it replaced. Quality is of highest level. I purchased the black stealth. The red "Superleggero" is silk screened so it is easily removed with acetone. Just put electric tape over the "Deda" to protect. Very happy with my purchase
James Nice, solid-feeling Seatpost. That there's the knurled wheel to ease saddle adjustment is a benefit; the post itself is very stable. MERLIN shipped very prompt (Vermont USA) and the sale was a pleasure. Thank You.
Mr papadopoulos Excellent seatpost. Not like the Thomson clamping system (the perfect for me) but the next better system is this and lightweight as the other Deda components. Perfect
galavoxx It took almost a month to arrive to San Francisco, California but the wait was worth it. The first thing I noticed when taking this out of the package was that the logo is raised like braille and looks like it will last for a long time. It is not just a little water based stencil or thin paint so it should look good for years to come. The head of the post is robust and the two bolt system looks like it will keep the saddle in place. I plan to use this on a CX bike that I will ride in gravel races as well, so saddle security is crucial. Overall, the style and quality of this post are top notch. I can see how some people might have issues with the front facing bolt on this saddle. It cannot be accessed unless you have a saddle with a cutout. As such, adjusting a saddle without a cutout might take a little extra time as you have to remove the saddle and put it back on to adjust the front bolt. Other than this, I am assuming this saddle will perform as good as it looks.
Mr Barraclough Fantastic product, excellent low weight for the price. Zero layback has transformed my riding position.
