    Someone measure their Elite seatpost??
    Need some quick help...I'm trying to upgrade my seatpost with a Thomson but am not near my bike to get my seatpost measurement. Anyone near their bike so they can check?

    Riding a 29er Elite 19". Just need the length. Thanks!

    the website says 300mm, and the diameter (I actually have the bike) is 27.2. I have the elite trail. Not sure if it changes with tier.
    EDIT: I'll update with actual length soon.

    I have since been back to my bike and the actual length is 400. Where did you see it on the site? I see where it has the diameter but not the length. Either way if it indeed says 300, they need to update their info. Thanks for the help.

    Go to the site and click the link to any elite. I can't post it, but scroll down and you'll see specs.
    I measured mine and it's 300mm. I would imagine that the tube length changes with size, but the site doesn't explicitly say so. I have the elite trail 15.5". Which one do you have?
    Did you buy used? Is the tube original?

    Ah I see where you're getting it. I have a 29er not a 26er. They only list the seat post length for a few of their bikes which is odd. If you click on the link for the 29er Elite it gives the diameter but not the length. Either way its all a moot point because I've since been able to check it out for myself. Thanks for the help though!

    Here's the link for mine: Save up to 60% off new Mountain Bikes - MTB - Motobecane Fantom 29Elite

    Edit: Just noticed your bike has 700c wheels and not 26", sorry about that.

    Whoops. Thought you meant the series of 29er hybrids. Those are elites. The bike you have is a FANTOM elite.

    You got it. I didn't even realize they had other "Elites" that weren't Fantoms. Ahhh gotta love BD sometimes :thumbsup:
