    50+ views, no info? Ignore the rear reflector and electrical tape. Also, this 29.4 seatpost came off a 93 YO i recently acquired...

    What other components are on it? Does the YO have Campy rims on it or anything else campy.

    That's not a Campy post

    Better photos would help.

    From that angle it just looks like something cheap.

    Lol, true. The original owner had changed out parts, so hard to determine what came on the bike. Currently has xtr vbrakes and levers, sram grip shifters and this mystery seatpost, which btw is a 27.2 sizing, shimmed to fit 29.4. I know the vbrakes are not period correct on this 93 YO, but damn it stops on a dime. Almost dont want to replace with cantis.

    A shimmed 27.2 post is far different from a 29.4 post.

    I thought it was a shock post when I first viewed it. So it's tapered head?

    Pics of the post head could help ID.

    I saw the same seatpost come through our shop recently on a newer Jamis road bike that was in for a tune up. I think it is much newer than your Yeti. I don't know who makes it, but I think it's Taiwanese and kinda generic.
    Don't call it a gooseneck.

    Thx Steve...aside from the clamping system, looks to be the cheapo post everyone assumed. RARE bird though, huh? Lol.
