Liked a comment about feature KisBikeCo Twist Socket Seatpost 5/3/2012 6:53 PM

Firstly I thought what a great idea, but then I thought about it a bit more...
If your going to innovativly eliminate one tool (socket/wrench) there must be a way to eliminate the 6mm hex key, storing it inside the seat padding for example?
Then I remembered how many pivotal seats I have snapped, and thought about how little leverage a seat can offer - How tight will this possibly get your rear wheel? And is this tight enough to not have to be constantly re-aligning and moving you wheel becoming more of an annoyance than just carrying a backpack with a decent tool in anyway?
I think the idea is good, but to be practical and worthwhile further product development is needed with perhaps a partnering strengthened seat with some sort of retractable and strong leverage.
