    Ahhh, because all frames come with minimum seatpost insertion marks dont they, dumbass.

    1 > no need for the name calling
    2 > most *do* actually come with a note in the owners manual about making sure Xmm inserted below point Y

    further proof – I have three Intense frames in the loft which actually have a little hole drilled in the back of the seat tube (so you can see where the seatpost is) with a sticker around it saying ‘minimum seat post insertion’

    My old Proflex had the same, the seat tube was about half a foot long and didnt continue to the bottom bracket so it was no where near as strong. Its dangerous and pretty expensive to assume people have any common sense.

    Whyte manual states to refer to seatpost manufacturers min insertion markings (Thompson)

    I’m no engineer, but I guess that running a 31.6mm dia 410mm seat post at its limit will be safer than, say, a 27.0mm dia post at the same extension – all other criteria being equal, that is.

    not if you run the 31.6 post in a 27.2 seattube 😉

    Mr Flow I’m struggling to decide whether you are seriously thick, a weird pointlees troll or both. 😕

    Not my bike BTW. This bloke told me he welded two seatposts together and is using the high tension wire to straighten them over time WTF OMG etc.

    Flow hasnt said anything retarded there.He was thinking exactly what i was thinking and i found that he replied to it before i got a chance to.

    re: a seatpost far too far out of a frame for its own good,followed by a comment about having a smaller frame as its more chuckable.

    If he was thinking along the same lines as myself.. he was probably picturing these types of people “chucking” their bikes about so much easier than a larger frame.. but at the same time wondering how on earth a bike can end up more chuckable with a seatpost nearly as far out as every seat post on bmx bikes of the early 80s.Its mind boggling.I`m sure flow would agree!

    you slam it for riding, raise it for climbing! it’s clearly not too difficult to “boggle” the mind of a retard 🙄
