    Salsa's New Ti Seatpost

    Post looks sharp but there are no sizes listed on the site, I assume 27.2 would be one of them but anyone know if there are plans for a bigger diameter?

    Just 27.2 is available. That's what all their frames are. 30.9 posts are available from Moots or Kent Erikson.

    I thought the suspension bikes had larger diameter seat tubes to accommodate dropper posts... But I suppose you wouldn't really want/need a Ti post on a suspension bike.

    Hey guys-

    The post is available in 27.2 only, as the merits and benefits of a Ti post (compliance) are lost on the bigger diameters.

    The Mukluks are all 31.6 this year for dropper posts, but I personally have the Ti post in a 2014 TI mukluk with a Problem Solvers shim.

    Tim,

    Thanks for participating in this forum! You helped me a few years ago with a couple of Vayas for my wife and myself; we purchased those two bikes and followed up a year later with a gen2 Fargo(for me.) I currently have a mukluk 2 on order with my soon-to-be LBS(East Burke Sports in VT.) Just wanted to say thanks again for the time you spent talking to me about those Vayas and your hint that I would "really like" what you guys had in store for the Fargo.

    Anyway, back on topic. Is the new ti post micro-adjust like a moots post, or is it indexed like the Budnitz?

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Im wondering if this would be a good replacement for my thudbuster on my 13 Ti Fargo. I have pretty severe back issues and in theory, the thudbuster should be ideal, but with the proper insert for my weight (235 lbs.), I dont know if the level of comfort it provides is much different than a Ti seatpost but with a large weight penalty

    from what i see for specs, the thudbuster is about 178 grams more.......not even a half pound, and a lot of money difference
