No, not having a large number of posts on mtbr.com.

I just learned this term that is being used around Shasta City. Refers to mtbers that ride with their seat post at full extension most of the time.

he he i actually thought it was referring to the "state of mind" of the poster...



i suppose i am a high poster, due to multiple knee injuries i don't find it comfortable to pedal at all without the post being higher than "normal".

I haven't heard that term used around here Shiggy. But I don't ride with the baggy shorts and body armor crowd, which is where I'll bet it came from.

LOL...

Haven't heard that term but it makes sense with the attemped insultive sarcasm that north shore freeriders have said, "Hey nice seatpost!"

Yup, that is the group. Cameron and George (here for the 'Puff) were called that in a bar recently.

Thank you for asking

Why yes my seatposts are kept pretty high. On my hardtail in the saddle I have to lean over to have my toes touch the ground, on one side ot the other. On the full suspension the same thing applies but with the rear shock compressed I go down some.

you mean ride with proper saddle height?

Hell yes!
when the going gets steep and technical, my little office-chair lever under my saddle drops the saddle height three inches so I can ride like a BMXer too.

That's me, fixed in place for all mountain riding just a hair past the min. insertion point.

Eh? After 12+ years of living and riding in Vancouver, I've never heard that one! Course, my burfday was yesterday, I'm older and more senile.

Well I don't ride with a lot of post out ( have a decent bit inside the frame, well above the min insertion point) but I do ride with the seatpost extended so I get a good and strong pedal stroke. On the rarest of occassions I might lower the saddle if a trail is exceedingly an steep, long DH or if I'm on a very tech trail where you aren't seated much and the need to "bail" is a constant and not much room to "lean" the bike over. Once again very rarely do I lower my seat, I've tried to teach myself to ride whatever comes at me with the saddle at the "peoper" height.

Yep

I'm such a high poster Titus had to make me a custom frame...

I was showing some guys from CA around here in CT a few years ago, when we got to the top of a hill they'd lower their seats, only to raise them again at the bottom. Of course that's normal, but in CT that means they were adjusting their seatposts every 10 mins. Eventually they gave up and just left them up, like the rest of us.

No ... but I'm sitting on my deck on a beautiful summer evening, listening to the Chilli Peppers & working on my 5th beer. Makes me an "impaired poster", I guess. D.
