Mtb Seat Posts
Technology has had a major influence on lifestyle in the last 50 years and this is particularly so in the world of bicycles. We've come a long way since the early days of the 'Penny Farthing'. It is unlikely such a creation would pass today's stringent Health and Safety rules and checks. The term Mountain Bike Seat Post would have been no more than gobbledygook.
Many growing up in the 1970s would fondly remember the Raleigh Chopper with its low suspension, two different wheel sizes and distinctive motorcycle style handlebars. If it was the symbol of 'cool' back then, now we have an awesome range of mountain bikes from which to choose. With comfort and durability important, getting the MTB Seat post right is paramount.
You would expect on virtually any mountain bike steel frame geometry, a mountain handlebar and stem and a one-piece MTB crank, but how much thought is given to the suspension bike seat post.
Let's look at a couple; firstly the Easton EA50 seat post. Just because you are an enthusiast and you love the thrill of the outdoors doesn't mean you have to spend fortunes. This little gem is crafted from 2014 aluminium with Taperwall technology and features an integrated 2 bolt clamp. It comes in two different lengths and in four different diameters so you won't be disappointed.
The Easton EC70 Carbon CNT Zero seat post is nothing short of a work of art. It sets whole new standards for strength and lightweight functionality. It has a low-profile clamping mechanism for easy adjustment and optimal saddle clearance yet still represents good value for money.
