My 1664 post and Aitken seat are lighter, and I haven't had any problems.

Also, my new ramp:

My roadie. I ride it the most; commuting, recreation, etc.


My MTB. I put slicks on it for commuting a year ago. I haven't ridden it in almost a year. I'd actually like to trade it/ sell it for a fixie/SS.

Done the frame designing and welding, now I just need to finish building my new back wheel and design a tensioner.

Could you post a picture from the non-drivetrain side. I'd like to see how you made that. Looks neat.

Pretty simple, just a few holes with a bolt and some bushings to pivot. The weld isn't exactly pretty, because the first one didn't penetrate causing me to land on my ass pretty hard doing a bunnyhop. So I built this one up pretty big, making sure I had better penetration.
