I like the simplicity, if there was an odyssey aitken checker version, id be on it. Not sure how much it is but fly bikes stuff is usually expensive, I wouldn't pay much for it though.

Is the angle adjustable?

Better to remain silent, and appear a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.

there was a thread like this awhile ago & someone stated it probably won't catch on. Fly's just trying to be innovative & I like that, but to beat out pivotal seats is gonna take some near impossible doing

Something to release and call it innovative I guess, looks like a pain in the ass to set up

Like Fly's last seat post innovation, it won't last long.

I personally think its dumb for bike companies to patent stuff, just doesnt seem right.

Personally, I don't see the advantages for the Tripod system over Pivotal. I guess it would be nice not having the hole on top of your seat, but I don't see Fly competing with Pivotal until they put out a normal looking seat, or they start letting other companies create a different base using the Tripod system. I'm pretty sure there's only about 3 or 4 different Pivotal bases that other companies just design covers for.

Are you out of your mind?

When you invent something, it takes a lot of time and money for research and development. Would you want to spend thousands of dollars on something, and then have someone take your idea and make money off it?
Patents give incentives for companies to develop new products.

people in bmx innovate the stupidest shit. " a brand new technology in the seatpost market " u dont need technology its a fucking post. its made of metal and holds the seat in place. i dont want air craft alloy with a smart computer machined quick release design. if it holds my seat on i dont give a flying fuck

I think it's neat, I was looking at a drawing of it on Dans, cause I just happened to click seat post and saw a "Tripod" tab and it sparked my interest

They look good... but i doubt it will ever catch on. Pivotal is just too easy.
