Swapping a layback for an inline post…
Not sure why people buy layback seatposts anyway to be honest.
Came with the bike, so no real choice.
Looking at that seat post I would blag an in line spare off a mate and try it…
Usually I would do that, but no-one seems to have one to try, So will have to pick up a cheap one to test it.Posted 4 years ago
The saddle on my new bike is pushed forward quite a bit, and is only about 10mm from the max. The post has about 20mm of layback. As a result I was thinking of getting a inline post, for aesthetic and allow more adjustment reasons.
On the road it’s ok, it’s a CX bike, but would be nice to make it a bit more compact when gnar-coring it off road.*
For the record, the frame is a small, and at 5’7″ I am short, but not hobbit sized, so assume the frame is the right size, and just trying to get the position right mainly for when off-road. Does this sound like a good idea, or should one make stem changes first?

Seems most road bikes come with layback posts, very annoying. I swapped mine from setback to inline and the choice was somewhat limited.
As rickmeister – set your saddle up first so knee is over ball of foot. If that means inline (prob will) then get or borrow one. Then find the best reach and change stem as appropriate.Posted 4 years ago
