I need a 29.4 mm dia seatpost and the only one now available apart from WR (who never answer my emails and are possibly suspect quality) is a Thomson Elite, 0 setback. Its to go in a steel frame and Im wondering how it would effect the ride quality, if at all? Also, is it stupid to put an alu post in a steel frame with the inherent corrosion issues?
