Seatpost recomendation for a Clyde
Hi I have a big guy who is a regular at my shop, lets call him Jeff. And jeff has fallen on some hard times, which means his bike is his only form of transportation. This isnt a problem for some people but it is for Jeff. Despite my pleads Jeff had me motorize his bicycle. I'm an expert on motor conversions and let me assure you the motor he has is safe. But the bike isn't. I overlooked one thing when I put this bike together and that was the seatpost. Jeff likes to hit potholes and doesnt like to get up off the seat when hitting these pot holes. Within 2 weeks he bent his seatpost. I was wondering what the communities recommendation for a good CHEAP seatpost is. I don't want him running off to the machine shop to get him self a solid steel tube just yet.
Thanks in advance,
