The Review
Well,since this is a made in China product,i believe its good(after all,China has the most cyclists).So if millions of chinese rely on it to get them around, i dont see why we cant.

Get this if u dont intend to spend a lot on a helmet.May not be as snazzy of comfortable as others,but it does its job

Strengths
Not extra padding.Was told i by Trek that they would have to import extra pading for me at the cost of $25(i think..not too sure though).Definatly not the best around too

" Good all-purpose tires "


Overall Rating
Reviewed on: 9th Oct 2015 from Clementi Singapore

The Review
These came stock on my new bike, and I'm quite happy with their all-purpose properties. I've ridden lots on roads and PCNs, including a 200km PCN ride, and was really happy with their low rolling resistence.
I've also been on numerous rides at BT, T15, Kent Ridge, Butterfly (when it was still legal of course), and once at Ketam and have not encountered any difficulties. Note that most of my rides were in fairly dry conditions.

 Cobalt 3 2012 Cobalt 3

" Do Not Get This! "


Overall Rating
Reviewed on: 9th Oct 2015 from Clementi Singapore

The Review
I needed a 400mm, zero offset seatpost for my new bike, and this was the only one at the shop that fit my requirements (and it was on sale too!) It was my first Crank Brothers product, and the first higher end seatpost I ever bought (I have always used stock oems, or the cheapest possible ones).

The craftsmanship is simply beautiful, but I had never-ending problems with the clamp bolt. I found that the single side bolt was unable to provide consistent clamping force on my saddle rails, and my saddle would repeated slip when I'm riding my bike. No amount of tightening would solve this. At one point, I tightened the bolt so hard that I snapped my wrench, and my saddle duly slipped again a few hours later. Because of my experience, I am now wary of all seatposts using this particular clamp.

I replaced it with a Thompson Elite, and have not had any problems since. I should also note that all the cheap seatposts I have used over the years have been problem free as well.

DO NOT GET THIS!!(unless u want to hang it on your wall).
