    cheap seatposts -- where?? (sub $10)

    Where do you guys go when you need a cheap seatpost? Length 350mm, various diameters. Weight not too important. Standard double rails saddle type.

    Nashbar sells them normally for around $10-15. But for beater or KMart type bikes, there must be a place that sells comparable quality for ~$5.

    FYI - Jensonusa.com has several around $5 (none of the diameters I need unfortunately). Aebike's catalog prices were comparable to Nashbar.

    Why LBS? It's impossible to find anything inexpensive there.

    ┬┤Think the problem with eBay is that shipping rarely is less than $5-7, which would make it impossible to find a good deal. I didn't know if someone was aware of where OEM parts were bought for things like KMart bikes. I need about 6 seatposts of varying diameters, no weights are important, but it looks like Nashbar's $10 variety might be the best bet considering they can all be bought at the same time.

    Thanks for the responses,
