- Titanium seatposts?
i’ve an old syncros one. comfort, no you won’t notice many diference really as the force is in compression, it will give a little for and aft what with the beinding and all, carbon is fine, i’ve seen one broken ti and one broken carbon in all me years – if it’s cheap get it, but check qaulity of the saddle clampy bit – that’s the bit that brakes in the cheap ones.Posted 8 years agofatgitMember
HiPosted 8 years ago
I have used a USE Alien and now have a Moots Layback (like in the picture :D)
Both are good but I think the Moots is noticably more “compliant” as well as being tarty!!
I picked my Moots up off here for 80 odd quid and am very happy with it but I would say the USE was OK too for half the price.
Its been a while since I used a carbon one so wouldn’t like to make a comparison.
I need a new post 380mm or longer with just a little layback and was wondering about a titanium one for comfort. Does it really make much difference? and more importantly is it gonna look crap with black stem and bars ? 😉 (I have silver middleburn cranks mind)
There are some cheapish ones on ebay
or there is carbon but it scares me a little and I get the impression putting my saddle up and down wont be a good idea
or there is a boring black alu one on crc
all opinions welsome as I seem incapable of making a simple decision todayPosted 8 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
haha, i did the opposite, bought expensive (EA70) bent it, bought cheep (titec knock DH) havent bent it.
No much of a weight penalty over a thompson, similar clamp, better warrenty, half the price!
Tempted by the control tech stuff, just because it looks as good as thompson, but weighs less.Posted 8 years ago
