- Large Soul owners – which 400mm seatpost???
I noticed lately that I’d been having problems dropping my post. On closer inspection today I found the reason why – at rather noticeable fore/aft bend.
So I’m on the lookout for a new post. The bent one is an Easton EA50 layback. So I’m after something a bit stronger. I’m about 15.7 stone so any recommendations from large riders would be most welcome.
Can’t say I’m particularly impressed with how the EA50 was holding up anyway, the finish is badly scored, a problem my old Havoc seatpost never suffered from…
Oh well, a legitimate reason for buying new bits 🙂Posted 8 years ago
Ideally, I want a one piece design, with layback in decent ALU and a hard wearing finish.
Nukeproof look ok but supposedly have crap paint.
I really like those Chromag Dolomites, but no-one seems to stock them.
This looks OK:
The Controltech one has rubbish bolts apparently.
Thinking about another Havoc, but unsure if all Easton 27.2mm post are rubbish.
That Syntace does look nice, but is way too expensive.Posted 8 years ago

I have a lot of seatpost showing on my Giant hardtail and never had a problem with a Thomson.The original Giant seatpost and a later Easton EA50 both slipped,but the Thomson just does the job without fuss.
Cy did made a comment recently about finding the Thomson less comfortable than other posts,but I guess that the price you pay for the strength.Posted 8 years ago
