There isn't one , it's so companies can produce seats and not have to pay MacNeil royalties for the pattented pivitol seat

Well for starters, the Tripod design doesn't require royalty fees to use like the Pivotal design does.


And some people are apparently so anal about their bike they don't like the tiny hole on their seat for whatever reason.

It was cheaper at the time for me. That's it.

Apparently it's stronger. I do see less broken tripod seats but its just a seat and tripods are relatively new.

Some people bitch about adjustability. But the two positions are literally the most common places people put their seats at and the more slack one is comfy.
I see tripod and pivotal as equal. Seriously. It's a seat.
One more thing, people like the cleaner look *cough* bullshit *cough*

Yes I've owned both.
