Current post has too much offset so want to get a cost effective but quality replacement. Can anyone confirm my assumption that a Syncros road post is the exact same as their mtb post, only shorter?

Does syncros still make posts/stems?the bull

I like there stuff an have one on my road bike now.
If you cant find a syncros then go for a thompson.
If thompson is out of your price range ($80.00)then check out the profomance brand "forte comp" for $20.00.
Hope this helps you - good luck, fellow non-layed back seat post rider!

yes, sort of. Syncros was purchased by GT which was purchased by whoever. Regardless ,great posts. Have a Al on my MTB and have a 27.2 Carbon sitting in my Garage (running Campy Ti on my road bike) it's the same but shorter. Has the same great head and adjustments

GT, Schwinn, Mongoose Pro, they are all owned by Pacific.

It is my understanding that the stuff you can still find from Syncros is back stock that wasn't sold. From what I know they haven't made anything new in 3 years. But I could be wrong on this, as this is just what I have heard, but I have never looked into it.
