While im satisfied from my Cannondale Save Seatpost, seem that bolts are made from very soft alloy so one of them is rounded.. I can ride the bike this way, but not possible to adjust my saddle until i replace them...

So few questions regarding this:

1. How to remove the rounded bolt (one of the front) ?

2. This is how bolts look like:

Is there any alternative in term of bolts more robust?


3. I like this seatpost, but thinking to get another one as spare


Two of them im thinking is:

- Hylix seatpost with setback (20mm)

Image

I can see in the description that they suggest to tighten the saddle rails bolts to 15 nm otherwise slipping will occur..

So how are everyones expreinces with this seatpost?


- The second seatpost im considering is FSA SL-K Carbon SBS SB20 Seatpost - 25.4x350mm - UD Carbon/black - grey

or same Vision Metron version..

What is actual weight of this, and how u like them?
