Looks nice too.

The two-bolt design gives micro-adjustability with ease and lets you dial in that perfect tilt.

It's is particularly good for a Brooks saddle because of the setback.

In general a seatpost is one of those things you either spend way too much money on, or you don't really care that much about. If it's a good seatpost, you don't notice it, but if it's a bad one...... This is a great seatpost if you are looking for that silver old school look and don't want to spend a lot of money. It's is particularly good for a Brooks saddle because of the setback. If you don't want to spend the money on the gold standard Nitto Dynamic Forged aluminum 27.2 x 300mm seatpost, but want about the same look and function at less than half the price, this is a great choice. I've put 1000 miles on mine so far with no worries. It looks great, is inexpensive, and I don't notice it; in my mind, the definition of a great seatpost.

I bought this for my Big Dummy which I have been using a Brooks 67 saddle on. When I unpackadged the seatpost I was amazed by the beauty of it. It isn't just flat chrome, but a beautiful pollish that makes it almost apear iridescent...I was very impressed with the unique mount for the saddle...I would defenitly buy this again!

Besides looking nice, and having the longer setback I wanted, it is also built well. Inside the tube, you can see that the walls are thicker on the front and back, and thinner on the sides (circular outside, oval inside); This gives more strength for the weight, compared to the stock seat-posts I've used before. The emblem on both sides also looks classy to me. The two screw adjustment makes it easy to tip the saddle nose up or down (tighten back screw to pull the back down, tighten front screw to pull the nose down).

This is a really nice seatpost! I needed a long setback seatpost for use with the short rails of my Brooks saddle, and I wanted a 2-bolt design for optimal adjustability. The finish on the seatpost looks great, and it isn't terribly heavy, though I'm not a weight weenie and threw it on my steel Soma Double Cross Disc.

Adjustability
-Vertically: The seatpost is sufficiently long to give a nice amount of adjustability, but is a tiny bit shorter at 300mm compared to the 350mm and 400mm posts available. This length should be adequate for all but very extreme cases.
-Horizontally: The long setback is nice for saddles with short rails (like Brooks) in order to get the set far enough back. However, this doesn't impair anything if you don't want to set it back far and want a more aggressive position, just move the saddle forward on the rails.
-Tilt: The two-bolt design of this seatpost was the big selling point for me. While most roadies like to have their plastic and carbon fiber saddles perfectly level, Brooks saddles need to be tilted back a bit for optimal comfort. The two-bolt design gives micro-adjustability with ease and lets you dial in that perfect tilt.

I expect to ride on this thing for many happy miles and will definitely transfer it over with my saddle if I ever get a new bike.

Like many people here, I purchased this seat post for the extra set back. I like the two bolt angle adjustment mechanism, this was the first seat post I had with that style of clamp.

I do, however, wish this seat post allowed for more "nose down" adjustment. On both bikes I have used this seat post on it worked in the most nose down position, but I wish I wasn't using it at it's limit. Who knows, a few degrees farther down may have been perfect. We'll never know.

It is a nice looking seat post with some extra set back. However, if you are an extreme nose down rider, this may not be the post for you. May be worth a try though. Even though I wish it went down farther, I am glad I got it.

I have a Brooks B17 saddle, and needed ore setback than my previous post would allow for w/ the Brooks. The VO Long Setback didn't give me as much as I had hoped, but made my my ride *much* more comfortable. I would strongly recommend the VO to all Brooks owners.

It's gorgeous. It's nicely made. It has tons of setback (really helpful for your Brooks saddle!) What more can you ask for?
