Kitty! Kitty! Kitty!
Not sure where to stick this thread... I'm looking to upgrade my stock seat post (giant alloy) and don't want to spend an arm and a leg. I was thinking of an Easton ec70 or something akin to that. I found one (new, 2011 model, zero offset) for $39.xx. Seems like a sweet deal and it's super light. I weigh about 185 with gear and mostly ride pretty tame single track. Is there something I should consider before buying this? I'm looking for some weight savings on the cheap... Am I wasting my money? My stock seat and post come in around 730gm or so... Bought a Vader saddle (trying for a better fit) for $11,and with this post at $39, I'd essentially be spending $50 to go from 730gm to 546gm. Worth it, or a waste?
