So...what are our modern options for a 26.8 seatpost? I know Thomson makes them, but Easton has stopped making them with their latest generation. Where else can I source a good 26.8 seatpost?

Honestly, the most annoying thing for me about owning Schwinns is the seatpost sizing.

GravityDropper.com Best buy you will ever make; I got the kind shock Brand and these things are worth the money!!

If you don't want a GravityDropper; look for another brand.

Buy this type of post they make it like a problem to go over the bars while decending.

I don't like suspension seatposts one bit. In fact, it bothers me somewhat that the Homegrown once came with a Rock Shox suspension post. I would instead suggest picking up a carbon fiber seatpost. You can either find a used one like an Easton or Titec, or buy a new one like a Sette or USE. It'll provide damping, without the myriad drawbacks of a suspension seatpost.

I have a USE XCR susp post on my Moab that I bought waaaay back when before I had FS, and honestly, I felt that it did nothing. Of course, the CC Thudbuster was out back then, but I didn't want to spend that much dough.
