Can anyone recommend a 25.0 seatpost?(8 posts)

Can anyone recommend a 25.0 seatpost?my327vette

Howdy, I am going to purchase a Look KG 381 frame which requires a 25.0 seatpost. It doesn't appear that there are too many options in that size. The only ones that I have seen so far are the Look Ergopost, the USE Alien carbon, and the ITM Millenium. Since I am about 210 pounds right now, I am a little concerned about using a carbon post. Can anyone tell me if these posts (particularly the USE Alien carbon) are strong enough for a heavier guy like me? Also, can anyone recommend any other good posts in a 25.0 size? Thanks.
I highly recommend themCrankYanker

especially if your seattube is slighly larger than 25.0.

I'd go with the standard LOOK Egropost. It's very beefy. Another option is www.icyclesusa.com. They have a Campy Victory post that is very strong.

It has the micro adjust so that you can really dial in the saddle angle.
American classic also makes one.KG 361

The old 1 peice AM classics were good, but I've heard that the new ones aren't so great. I'd stick with the ergopost-I have one on my 361 and it is great-looks great too. BTW-I'm 185 so you shouldn't have to worry about it as far as durability. Where are you getting it from? (The bike, that is.)

The best seatpost that I have regarding adjustability is a 25.0 Suntour Superbe Pro seatpost on my Tommasini Diamante. If you can find one, that's what I'd suggest. BTW, I'm 6'2", 185#.

I ride a 361 and the Am Classic is just fine. Good quality, great price, and all the adjustability you'd want.
