Even if you're not six foot plus many cruiser frames are a little short in the crotch and the ride/comfort will be greatly improved by getting that saddle aft a few inches.

A solid post is the way to go, or a gusseted tubular one. There have been many reports of the cheaper tubular posts bending. One I know of dropped the guy right onto his rear wheel at speed. Not a pretty thought.

All I can say is OUCH!!!
