    New question here. Epic Layback Seatpost

    What is the deal with the layback seatpost on the Epic? Some of the higher-end models have it and some of the lower-end models don't. Do these bikes have different geometry that this compensates for? Is there a corresponding adjustment to the stem length or angle? How, if at all, does this affect the handling?

    If you have a good look at the photos, you will notice that all seatposts have setback, but Thomson seatposts have if in a different way. I most seatposts the setback is generated by the clamp, but not in Thomson. A non-setback clamp is lighter and stonger than a setback one.

    I'd submit that with thomson seatposts, layback or no, strength is NOT an issue
