    seatpost suggestions for '03 HP Team frame need setback

    Since the HP has 27.0 seatpost size, I'm looking for a seatpost with some setback on it. I may be looking at getting a Raceface XY, because I need it longer as well, at least 375mm. The Raceface is 400mm. Easton, Thomson don't make a seatpost that is 27.0, unless I get the Easton 50 again, don't care for it. Anyone have suggestions for a post with setback?

    I owned a Race Face XY on my NRS. At the time, it was the only seatpost I could find that offered 400mm length with a good amount of setback and with good reviews. The post worked out great for me and I'd recommend it if the make it in the 27.0 size.

    I'm also impressed with the Salsa Shaft. Again, I don't know what size options they offer. It's got a little less setback than the XY if I remember correctly. My wife is using this one on her bike and although she's much lighter than me, the quality is top notch and the review indicate it works well for big guys.

    'Course, you could always go with a bent Ti post.

    Check Speedgoat's site for a good selection of setbacks.
