    New question here. light weight offset / layback seatpost?

    besides Thomson...who makes lightweight offset posts?
    I need some room since my frame is a little small.
    I'm looking for my AM bike, so I don't want anchors.

    Posted here because I can count on some good responses!

    Are there enough saddle choices out there?

    Offset looks good. I'll do more research on this.

    Any others you know of?

    Thomson Elite makes a setback version. Hard to beat on weight and quality.

    The Raceface Respond is the only post I could find with 3/4" setback and I needed all I could get:

    It's not Thomson light but is strong and functional.

    Have FUN!

    I like my Crank Bros Cobalt post. It's a 20mm setback and has a really simple and easy to adjust clamp.

    thanks for the info...I'm checking out CB and Raceface now.
    I've been on Thomson for years and they're great...but just anticipating that my replacement frame may feel a tad smaller...so investigating all options.

    Theres a couple Truvativ Stylo Teams in 25mm setback (~1") on Pricepoint if 20 ain't quite enough and they're pretty light

    *Edit: lemme know if anyone locates a >or=25mm setback Al post with 2-bolt clamp (all the ones I'm finding have 1-bolt, most likely because of access issue)...

    I run I-Beam (also non offest) but have been very happy with it, no problems or issues at all. The Bel Air would be the seat if you are looking for something with a bit of cushion and if you want sometime more light weight go with the I-Fly. I have the I-Fly on my V10, but I think I may get the Bel Air for my trail bike. I also have the Formula FX Ti on my trail bike at the moment with a dropper post and I found the Bel Air that I used to have more comfortable. Overall VERY pleased with the I-Beam products!
