How do you adjust a tripod seat? Pivitols are the way to go

Yeah, there's a wedge piece that determines the angle. Personally, I don't see a need for so many angles on a pivotal. But to each their own. I mean, I have a Shadow seat/post combo thing and can't adjust it at all, and don't really see why I would need to really.

Why do need so many angles?

Some seat combos come with the seat leaning back, so it's like if you fuck up you end up with the front of the seat in your ass.

So this is the Odyssey Chase Hawk Tripod Seat & Via The Merged it says the Post will be Chris Doyle & Brian Foster Approved I.E VEEEEEERRRRY Long, Which is a GREAT thing as the majority of Tripod Posts are no longer than 135mm.

The Odyssey Monogram Principal Tripod Seat looks pretty Fat. I mean some of the Mid seats are actually more plush than the so called "Fat" Seats like the Fiend one, that's Fat but its fucking uncomfortable! I'd love to see a Tree Ergo Tripod Seat & an Eclat OZ Thick Tripod Seat. Those would be fucking sweet. Also there needs to be a Polished Post too!

When I get the money I want to get the Chase Hawk Seat and the Long Post because:
I like high Seats, the 135mm Posts are way to short for me.
I love Slim Seats, they look so good.
My current Railed Aitken Seat is falling apart.
I've just ordered some Army Green Animal GLHs and Subrosa Villicus Grips, so the Army Green version will go perfect with my Bike.
I never want to run a Pivotal. I'm currently running a Railed Seat. I don't want a Pivotal because IMO they are pretty pointless, look cheap and I don't like how companies have to pay royalties to Macneil to use the design.

I don't think they make them in Green anymore, but that's where I bought them from. I would of got them in Black but they're out of stock. At first I thought there's no way I'm going to run Green Tyres but that was such a good deal and after thinking hard I decided it wouldn't look to bad and now the Grips in the same colour have arrived, I have started to think they'll actually look really good on my bike. I've also seen a Green GLH in a bike shop before.

All companies will be paying royalties to Fly since they hold the patent on the tripod system.

they don't look to bad as for having to pay royalties i don't know about you but i wouldn't want other companies using my company's patent design with out my permission or for free its not a very smart business move
