    I've never had a problem with either of the Enve posts I used, but if you read Weight Weenies there seems to be a number of folk over there (and a few here, reading this thread) who have done.

    Again IME only, no.

    I believe the Ritchey ISP topper is offered as an alternative if setback is needed.

    For what it's worth I've never seen a one-bolt post which is as reliable or easy to use as even the most basic two-bolt post. If you're picky about your saddle position a two-bolt post makes a big difference.

    It's a bit convoluted. The Ritchey is standard and it is setback. The ENVE is an up-charge, albeit a modest one by SV standards and it is zero setback. So for some, like me, the Ritchey became mandatory even though I had opted for the ENVE. I have had no problems with the Ritchey. Now, I am glad I have it. It is light enough and appears dependable for the long haul.

    I don't know if anyone else likes them, but the Salsa Shaft always seemed really easy to adjust and keep adjusted -- one bolt to adjust the fore-aft position of the saddle on a "sled" and two bolts to adjust and secure tilt of the sled. The adjustments weren't 100% independent, but were close to it. The original Enve is a PITA by comparison.

    I have the Salsa Shaft on 2 of my 3 bikes and chose it for the exact reasons you mention. I would have bought one for my newest bike but the Shaft hasn't been available for at least the last 2 years, unfortunately.

    The reason I ask is, I had a Ritchey seatpost that wouldn't hold it's angle for squat. I threw it in the garbage.

    Lastly, regarding Speedvagen fit and the zero setback Enve head: The Speedvagen seattube angles are pretty average considering the frame sizes. I would expect them to be paired with setback mast toppers. Comments? Opinions?
    Right, my SVCX has an 8mm setback 1-bolt Ritchey topper.
    It is a huge PITA to get all the fiddly parts together, but it is solid once assembled and easy to adjust. A zero setback topper would not work with SV stock 54 geo for me, though I have noticed that my SVCX's seattube angle appears to be slightly more slack than what is spec'd by almost .5d... Not a huge deal I guess. I just use an hbar with more reach to compensate.

    I prefer a regular post over a topper any day, but the SV is a great bike so that's that.

    Really?? I can't think of anything easier to use than a Dura Ace or Campag unit.

    I don't like the serrations in the clamp...I find the saddle either tilts up too much or tilts down too much.

    Had sent my SV to the shop to get some work done - had them extend the seat post mast, fix the brake guides and FD that had rust. Decided to repaint the frame. Here is the bike after all of the work and rebuild. I cannot wait to take her out for a ride.

    Does look good, but dang, $275 is a lot of cheddar for a seat post.

    Yeah... Isn't that about what the (similar-looking) Moots or Eriksen posts go for?
