In-line seat post
Purchased a new saddle some months ago (Selle Italia Max Flite) and have just discovered that although I mounted it in the middle of the rails same as the old one (Selle Italia Turbo) it actually means that I am too far back from the handlebars (it appears that this is a common problem when changing from an old saddle to a newer style one).
Thinking of an in- line post. Would this give a harsher ride? How do I measure the seat post set-back? Can anyone suggest a reasonably priced in-line post for a road bike - they seem to be one helluva price.
the scout, You don't have to mount the saddle at the rail's midpoint. Adjust it to where you want it.
A suspension seat post is a 2fer, they tend to have zero setback, to make the telescopic spring mech work best,
+ they will take some harsh bumps out of un seen road holes and such
measure ? how about the saddle clamp location in relation to the center of the seat tube axis..
