old school MTB part name question
im looking for the the name of the part that they made for MTBs in the 80s...
its like a spring type thing that attaches to the seatpost and frame for raising/lowering a seatpost on the fly. when you release the quick release the saddle springs up to a pre-set height, and when you want to lower it again, you release the quick release again, and use you weight to lower it back down.
i think having one of these would be great, bc the MTB trails around here have some hellish descents with good jumps. for the descents i prefer the seat a bit lower (for obvious reasons), but when the trails levels off i like the saddle a tad higher.
i know ive read threads here in which people have mentioned them, maybe someone has one lying around theyd be willing to part with?
