Cane Creek eeSilk Gravel Seatpost (Black) (20mm Travel) (27.2mm) (375mm)
I'm very pleased with the comfort this provides. I've tried out 7 saddles in the last year and with all I had a fair amount of discomfort on long rides (50+ miles). So far this has improved my comfort level in a more significant way than any of the recent saddles I've tried.

However, I don't like the way one adjusts saddle tilt with this seatpost clamp. The front bolt is only adjustable from the top with a 10mm wrench., i.e. between the saddle and the seatpost where it's almost entirely inaccessible. With my current saddle, (a Brooks b17) I have to pry up the side of the saddle to attempt to get a wrench in there. If I'm lucky enough to grab it, I can only get a quarter turn at a time because the saddle rails get in the way.

The back bolt is a more reasonable downward facing 4mm hex bolt, but I somehow managed to strip immediately. Fortunately it's a common bolt that I was able to pick up at the hardware store.

As long as I never have to adjust the saddle again I'll be happy, but I'm not looking to the inevitable time that I will have to reach that top facing bolt. So close to a great product, but that was a really poor design decision.
