Can anyone recommend a seatpost with at least couple of cms of setback. Clamp snapped on mine this evening - 15 mile ride home without a saddle - it's my best bike so something reasonably nice but don't want to go superlight or super expensive.

Was going to get a Thompson Elite but even their setback model isn't that setback.

it's a hard life if you don't weaken.


  • from memory a deda black stick has around 23mm of setback i think.

    I've put a FSA K force carbon on my Ribble. 25mm setback. Really pleased with the comfort factor. First carbon post i've had so can't comment on others.
