Seatpost suggestion for Clydesdale(3 posts)

Seatpost suggestion for ClydesdalePainter
Apr 18, 2001 10:50 AM
Does anyone have any suggestions for a good seatpost for a Clydesdale? I'm 210 lbs., and 6'4", so some layback/offset would be good.

It's going on an aluminum frame, and I'm more into comfort than weight. I tend to put in a fair number of miles on both city and highway roads, and am looking for something that might take a little of the edge off.

BTW, does anyone run a Race Face XY post on their road bike to get the layback?

Thanks for the help.

I'm your size, and have had good luck with the Thomson Elite seatpost (with layback) - easy to adjust, and very durable! The layback version gives you 15mm of offset.

Most of the Mt. bike posts are built to take a little more punishment. They are also longer, but a hack saw can take care of that.
