Is there any reason not to use a BMX seat / seat post on a mountain bike?
Sorry, I'm a noob :(

if it fits, i see no reason why not
Yea if it fits, no problem.
wish i still had my BMX seat it was SOOOOOO comfortable.
but some moron stole it
Sorry to hear that Cheeto. Thanks for the answers guys.
Just one more question, is 25.6mm and 25.4mm a negligible size? My frame says it takes a 25.6mm seat tube (which I'm having trouble finding), but I find lots of good ones in 25.4mm.

yes, there is a bit of a difference that can cause issues with certain frames.

it can rattle around, and over time crack the frame. thats the last thing you want to happen
yeah, a broken frame is an unhappy frame.
do they even make seat posts in 25.6mm? I'm having trouble finding one.
