    New question here. Titanium seatpost on Curtlo Epic Mountaineer

    Anybody out there using a Ti laidback seatpost on a steel Epic Mountaineer? If so, is this a good combo, or what? Also, what air pressure setting for the Salsa Relish shock? I'm about 190# with gear... so far it seems like I should run bout 40 p.s.i.

    I don't see why this would be a problem, which one are you looking at, Moots? If anything, it will give you a little more cush. May need to use a shim though.

    was my first thought; never really been a Ti guy, so I'm not quite up to speed on who all offers laid back Ti posts; I'm more than happy to hear suggestions. I've been riding about 36 p.s.i. in my shock, sometimes it's enough, but other times it's not, as I've had my front derailler make contact with the chain stay (once or twice). 40 p.s.i. seems to prevent contact, but it sometimes feels a bit stiff (no rebound adjustment on this shock). A buddy suggested running the higher air pressure with a Ti post, and then also tweak the rear tire pressure a bit. I've never ridden Ti, but he does, and he swears by it.
