    Seatpost for Big Guys

    I'm looking for a seat post with a 25 plus setback. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Difficult to go wrong with a Thomson but they're not cheap.
    Due to a lack of interest, tomorrow has been canceled

    The Easton EA70 seatpost has a 25mm offset...

    That said, I would only recommend a Thomson post for a Clyde. The effective offset on the layback Thomson post is only 16mm, though.

    Maybe not enough offset in the Thomson, but they do work very well for us Clydes. Not cheap, but worth it.

    You may be able to get the extra 10 mm (16mm is best you'll get from Thomson) from rotating your bars forward or a slighly longer stem....

    Just a thought.

    I am a giant fat bastard.
    I have twisted a Syncros, and bent a Race Face.
    But I have no problems with my Thompson.
    And the bling factor is a nice touch. The bend makes folks think you already taco'd it.
    I love you to death, but get on the bus or throw yourself under it.
