  • thanks loads, wanna get one, they look so good !

  • Anyone have any ideas? It looks lush.

  • miche supertype 27.2 in silver

  • america is good

  • Exactly the same thread title asking about exactly the same seatpost.

  • the merge queen™ has spoketh

  • I prefer to think of you as a mad submarine commander.

    or this bloke

  • bump

    A slight derail from the miche question, but it's got the best title, and there isn't actually a dedicated "seatpost thread".

    I'm after a seatpost:

    • ideally carbon
    • not a thomson
    • adjustable
    • good clamp
    • some layback
    • not too expensive (sub-£50 ideally)
    • good looks are a bonus, rather than essential

    I like the adaptability of the thomson's, and want something with a decent clamp, but I'd rather not have a thomson.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Easton's and USE seem to be well recommended.

    This Zipp one seems like a fairly good deal

  • There's loads of RaceFace posts on clearance at the mo. I rate RaceFace stuff.

  • Oooh... the FSA one's look pretty close to the mark.

    I'm usually a bit snobby about their stuff tho. If I was after a inline post, I'd definitely get one, but the offset one only has one bolt...hmmm

  • One bolt seatposts are fine. A bit more faff to set-up. But how often do you move it?

    If you want a great clamp, and clever engineering look to syntace.

  • Cheers for the tips.

    It's silly, but I had a really cheap shit seatpost before...and it was shit at holding the position.

    My beater's got a carbon one but with this style:

    It doesn't have proper adjustablility, where as the thomson-like 2-bolt systems seem to work well. So for that reason I'm weary of anything with only one bolt.

  • I have never found a one bolt post that could work for my 14 stone bulk.

    Also make sure the 2 bolts are fore and aft, not side by side. It amazes me that the bolts can be put at the fulcrum point on some posts.

  • Got to say, my uncle john had a Planet X Superlight on it, and I thought that was good all round, plus they're only £20. If I was after a cheap post it'd probably be my first choice.

    has exactly the type of clamp you're talking about dj.

    and it's quite a nice shape.

    But I'm looking for something a bit nicer this time.

  • KCNC SC Pro-lite.

    Light, set-back, cheap, nice clamp.

  • ..cheap..

    £70-100 isn't cheap!

    But yes, it does look like a good option, and definitive looks good.

  • it's all relative, when you are a multi millionaire £70 is cheap. And I've heard Smallfurry is quite the snow magnate.

  • I saw it for 65 notes. Cheap for the quality, strength, and weight.
