Submitted by MrCookie a Cross Country Rider from Bend, OR, US

Date Reviewed: December 6, 2008

Strengths:    Comfy to ride on. Takes the edge off nicely on my hardtail.

Weaknesses:    Bent it... I came unclipped while hopping a log, pogo'ed on it two times, and that was that. I only weigh 165, and the hop was only about 4 inches.

Bottom Line:   
I liked the post until now. I did notice that it started to get a little tear drop shaped from tightening (just enouth to prevent slippage, I'm not a gorilla). I'll probably trim off the affected area, and stick it in a different bike...

Strengths:    
It's REALLY light. Haven't had a troube with ti bending ( I weigh 140). Pretty easy to adjust too.


Weaknesses:    
Well my old post was a 27.2 so I ordered a 27.2 and the thing was just abit to big. I had A LOT of trouble getting it into my c'dale


Bottom Line:   
It's pretty nice(cause it's light) but I think it comes a bit big so watch out.

Strengths:    
Ti


Weaknesses:    
weak post, decals don't last


Bottom Line:   
I've ridden this post on 4 races and a few training rides. It is now noticeably bent! I weigh 175 and never take the post out farther than I'm supposed to. Baaaaad post. I've never had problems with a syncros and the clamp is much better. I don't think there is anything good to say about the titec. It's a pity that schwinn spec'd it on their high-end bikes.

Bottom Line:   
The absolute worst designed seat clamp I've ever seen. Why do manufacturers keep trying to improve on the basic one/two bolt design???

Strengths:    
Light weight


Weaknesses:    
High adjusting knob


Bottom Line:   
The Titec Ti post is pretty damm light. Nice polished finish. I rode this post over choppy terrain and it absorbed a lot of shock. One problem (on the 98 model) is a high adjusting knob on the post. I used a Serfas Dual Density saddle and there is very little clearance between the saddle and the post thus allowing very little flex. I went out and bought a Giro saddle with higher clearance (just like Schwin). I haven't tried the new set up yet. I figured I'd tuff it out a little longer w/ the Serfas saddle. I'd give 5 stars because it's light and cool looking and minus 1 star for the high adjusting bolt.

Anybody try Ti-springs.com for a titanium spring? (x-post from Shocks and Suspension)

Are they a stand-up company? They have a pretty good deal for pre-orders shipping early May ($166 with free shipping), but I'm wondering if anyone's tried one and if their 36.5mm I.D. spring fits a DHX rc4 w/o spacers or adapters like I needed for the Obtanium spring on my Pushed DHX 5 that's on an ...

full suspension vs hardtail w/titanium post and high volume tubeless

i have never ridden a high volume tire with a ti seatpost and am wondering what it feels like. I like the idea of a hardtail but need some forgiveness for back and don't really want to do a thudbuster.Read More »

Can I make my 27.2 titanium post fit my 27.0 frame ?

I have an old 1993 Kona Explosif. It takes a 27.0 post, and finding one in titanium is not easy or cheap. I have a 27.2 titanium seatpost though. Is it possible/relatively safe to remove .2mm. I'd like to use the post with a Hite Rite. Is it feasible to modify the post and/or the frame ?Read More »

Post pictures of your titanium frames with rigid forks!

Have a Selma on the way from [url=http://www.hammerheadbikes.com]Hammerheadbikes.com - Your 29er Source[/url] and am thinking of going with a Niner RDO 15mm rigid fork or a Whiskey Parts Co monocoque fork in matte paint. I'm trying to get an idea of which way to go, nude Niner, moondust Niner, t ... Read More »

Non-porky titanium post?

Not truly a WW question since carbon is lighter, but I'm looking for a 27.2 titanium seatpost in a 350mm with a little bit of setback. Going on a lightweight HT and I need some flex in the post. Also need a great clamp so my setback isn't tilting the saddle up while riding. Given up finding a Syn ... Read More »
