which seatposts have the most setback?(4 posts)

which seatposts have the most setback?cbass

I'm trying to move back a little in order to get my knee slightly behind the pedal spindle & I think more setback on my seatpost would do the trick.

I put a Thomson setback post on and it actually had less setback (by 1/4 inch) than my old post. The post is curved back, but the clamp is not setback at all.

Can anyone recommend a seatpost that has a lot of setback and also is relatively lightweight?

Thank you,

The new style Easton seatpins have a lot of setback. Not the prettiest though, in my opinion, for this same reason.

The current Campy posts have more setback than most. Not super cheap but nice quality.

Agree with Campy seatpins for laybackwackycyd

I've always opted for Camp. seatpins myself whenever I've felt the need for more layback, any of the current line up, Record, Chorus or Centaur, will do the trick as they all have the same cradle.

However the seatpin with the most layback out of them all is one that Selcof do , aptly named 'Bioposition', it basically has two cradle points, one for normal layback (18mm), t'other for extreme layback (32,5mm), more than what most people require, although I have seen some rather strange set ups in my time.
I'm still trying to get my head around some tri bike set-ups, lol.

Selcof's web. addy is:

I have one on one bike, the clamp works well, and setup is easy. I agree, it ain't purty and think it would look much better if the aluminum bits were anodized black.
