    Anyone know about this seatpost?

    Anyone know anything about this seatpost from Eurobike last year?

    Can anyone translate what it says?

    A total guesstimate but something about "No Compromises" and 8" of handle bar mounted seat adjustment? Somethin' about obtaining the best saddle position?

    I don't speak German or whatever language that is.

    I am fluent in German and was surprised to read that this is a spring loaded seat post with an eject lever on the bars.

    If the rider senses a crash is imminent, he can flick the eject button prior to impact and the rider will be ejected off of the bike.

    I did some further research on the internet web .com and it showed the product was pulled off of the market shortly after its introduction because although the ejection mechanism worked flawlessly, the matching clipless pedals that also were suppose to release simultaneously were plagued with problems and rarely released causing numerous injuries to the rider

    this is an ad on the apparently "soon" outcoming syntace adjustable seatpost. seems to be quite well-thought, but with one big drawback - it's only announced, not in shops and i guess not even in production yet. more info here NOT

    important technical data: 200mm (7,87") drop, continously variable over the whole range, hydraulic clamping, 560g, the rest is just promo-blabla

    i AM fluent in german

    Thanks

    Now that's more like it.

    Now if I could only find more info from their site or elsewhere. Wouldn't help though if it's no where near ready to sell. Got to keep my eye on the horizon though.

    From a post on a German Mountain Bike Forum in September 2008:
    is still a prototype, but according to Harald has worked better than anything else on the market.
    coming soon ... no price and date ...

    Allright...

    Well, the first line says "patent-pending, fully adjustable and backlash-free saddle connection."
    Second line is something about how fast it is...

    Good luck with that, mister 300-Mile Turn Radius.

    Maverick/Crank Brothers have been marketing an adjustable seatpost with handlebar remote for mountain bikes for years:

    true CB has a post out, but this post looks to have much more range than the CB. 200mm vs 75mm on the joplin (3 in). Plus, a hydraulic lever instead of cable actuated like the CB. Plus, if I understand correctly, a fine tuning knob for precise remote seat height adjustment. That's a pretty cool feature, not sure how much I'd use it but cool if it doesn't add much weight.

    I've been having trouble with my joplin lately so I'm on the lookout for maybe something else. Any interbike info on this seatpost would be appreciated!

    Yup... Too bad it seems to be quite problematic after a year or so.

    If Syntace makes it, will be worlds better than CB's version (they actually know how to engineer in Deutschland!).

    Have FUN!
