    circus seatpost

    on alittle lighter topic than the SD fires.

    well when you buy a bike with 2 hours notice (1 day before whistler trip you find you have a cracked frame), you hope everything works out great. bike is awesome, felt exactly like the old stinky, zero getting used to. except they made the seatube 2.5 inches shorter.
    so i pushed the limits of having full range to drop the seat for descents (i like to drop 7 inches from climbing position to descending position). i had 3 choices, telescoping post, grind away the inside of the floating brake bolt(since i won't be using the floater, worst for super steep rollers) or the option i choose. it works perfect!! (using a 16 inch thompson post)

    That doesn't look very safe....

    And are you sure the frame isn't too small for you if you need that much extension on the seatpost??
