How heavy are you? I'm 190 with gear, and I have run a few saddles pushed all the way back, and did not have a problem with them breaking. Just sayin' if you can't find one with a longer offset for a reasonable price, I would not lose too much sleep over it.istrabike said:Recently I had a profesional bike fit. The bike fit's me preaty well, but the sadle is set all the way to the front of the rails so the posibility for sadle brake is high.
Basicly i need a seatpost with more setback, curently run Ritchey Pro witch is advertised as 25mm offset, but after mesuring it carefuly I think is closer to 20mm.
That is not going to help anything. His issue is that the seat tube is too steep, and if a setback post gives him the proper saddle to bb position, then it's all good.Yogii said:Sounds like your bike does not fit!!!!!!!!!!!! How about getting a frame with a longer top-tube?
I don't understand your purchase... the Syntace P6 pictured above is zero offset.pigmode said:Decided to order the Alu Syntace, and hopefully it'll arrive before the new year. I'm one of those riders who could benefit from a custom frame. Short legs with a long torso means either sacrificing stand over height or ETT.
Hey Im searching for other brands myself. I would like to see what else is out there before I drop $$$ on a Thompson.kapusta said:Nice knee-jerk response.
a setback Thomson only has 16mm of offset, so it doesn't meet the OP's needs. It did sound like a knee-jerk response given those circumstancesworrptangl said:Hey Im searching for other brands myself.

Not to mention is has a very conservative 41mm clamp length. That's good for holding your saddle exactly where you want it, but not so good for fore / aft adjustment range.boomn said:a setback Thomson only has 16mm of offset, so it doesn't meet the OP's needs.
