Hi everyone, 


I'm curious to hear what real-life advantages people have found to using a thick 2" or 1.8" post, compared to, say, a 1.5" diameter?


Is everything noticeably more rigid, even with a short, normal-mode sled? What about with a fully-extended sled?


Looking forward to your thoughts,
