having had the old twin bolt seatpin, couple of years ago bought an Alien, and sad to say, what a piece of shite. It holds the seat, is nice and light, but is an absolute bstard to adjust. :cry:

The old one is now copied by some cheapy manufacturer.

Hmm that chain karma looks like it uses a grub screw to press against your chainstays... nice.

I've had USE alien seatposts for a few years and there's a definite "knack" to setting them up but once you've done it a coupla times it's not so bad. My only complaint is the weedy allen bolts they give you! Take care with those buggers and treat as if they're made of gorgonzola! :wink:
