    Turner Seatposts??

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Turner-Seat-Post...item518d34854e

    Odd, I have never heard of Turner making seatposts?? Looks flexy

    Question is, are these HL, TNT or DW? I'm guessing not DW, as they are 30.9.

    Heh... I just got one. I would be surprised if Turner actually licensed this thing. I got it because of the claimed weight and price... and color. $22 landed.

    It has an internal oval to reduce weight and a dual bolt 'T' bar type head like a KCNC or USE post. I haven't put it on a scale yet to see actual weight, but it feels stupid light.

    Finish is not real great quality. You can tell they did not spend much time de-burring it after it came out of the CNC machine. I have not check it with my micrometer yet to check how accurately it was sized, but I'm not super concerned.

    I found this thread by Googling to see if it was counterfeit (well the logo at least). I strongly suspect it is.

    Got one for my little kid bike. Looks nicely made. I guess it is not as solid as Thomson it mimics closely, but it holds the saddle, weights little, and costs much less. Perfect for a kid. Saved more then a quarter pound - and could lower the seat more compared to stock.

    Please DON'T buy this counterfeit crap.
    it may be lighter in weight and look purdy but by doing so your taking away from
    a legitimate business which in turn effects us all.And when it fails you'll be wishing you were on a Thomson

    It will not fail under a 40lb kid, and I do not feel like a charity paying more for similarly performing product.
