....goes to chap on local Facebook site for these two beauties.

Having bought a Warhead stem and Warhead bars for my new build, I thought it would be fitting to complete the finishing kit with saddle and seatpost from the same range, even though the bike is no longer going to be a Nukeproof. Imagine then my joy at finding a "nearly new" saddle and seatpost for £35 including postage. I snapped them up and paid using PayPal goods and services, which when I received the items, I was more than glad of. Needless to say, I shall be returning these for a refund, then using a seatpost from the parts box with a Spoon

Exhibit 1) Saddle

Entirely twisted chassis, bent rails made even more painful for being Ti

Exhibit 2) Seatpost

Seems to have been purchased by someone who ordered the wrong diameter and then thinned down using an angle grinder. Or a chainsaw. Hard to tell.

    I don't know what you're complaining about, they look brand new to me.

  • Ha ha ha! That seat post is a classic! I assume there weren't photos available before you bought? And they were described as "nearly new"?

  • They were fine when I posted them.
  • These are photos from my Desk of Shame. The original photos were of the pair installed in a frame and I made the mistake of taking someone's word for it. Just exemplifies why I rarely bother with the second hand market any more

    That seatpost :lol:
  • It's only a few cosmetic scratches. You won't even notice them when they are on your bike ..........................
