    rockwerks seatpost ???

    I am looking for a new 28.6 seatpost for my [old] bullit and a shop offered a choice of a Thompson, which i know is excellent, or a rockwerks for a third of the price.Does anyone have any experience with the rockwerks. Can't find any mention in forums/reviews.

    I may be alone on this, but I buy the cheapest one that performs the job. I don't have a rockwerks post, but I do have other cheap posts that I am sure are probably the same design that work perfectly holding the seat. (Just to make sure, the rockwerks post is a 2 bolt seatpost? If it is a single bolt.. run away)

    That being said, I have a Thomson on my dj bike. Although it is a well made seatpost I would never buy it again. Not only is it 3 times the price, but I only ever use 5" of it. For the gear whore and logo lovers that isn't even enough to see the entire logo. Also, they are made for xc seats with narrow rails. So if you run a jumping seat with big rails it is a bit odd.

    It's your money, and Thomson posts are sweet... Tough call...
