    Is this ok to do?

    the stock suspension seatpost that came with my sirrus is too soft. so i tighten the bottom screw inwards more so it's stiffer. but since this is the first suspension seatpost i have used, i'm not sure if this is safe or not. what do you think?

    here is a pic of it.

    That's how you tighten those. Don't worry I doubt the elastomer is going to fire out through the bottom of your seat.

    Rectum? Hell no damn near killed him.

    cool cool... i know what you mean about the bump part.. before when it was soft.. i hit a bump and it got stuck so when i was about to get ready for a climb, i got off my seat and pop... the nose of the seat gave my boys a love tap. thus this thread as to how to make that shiat stiffer.

    just saving up for a new post and stem...

    yeah even after tightening my post it still did it occasionally. i even tried it on my mountain bike kuz i figured a suspension post may be good in that situation...nope...having a normal post is worth all the money in the world

    Hi ruirui, I hadn't seen a picture of your Sirrus since the mods. Wow, it looks fantastic. What size seat post do you need? I have a 26.6 seat post that I would be glad to send you for free. It's nothing special--but it's in good shape and it's not a suspension post. It's not doing me any good lying in my toolbox. If you can use it drop me an e-mail at fox@demonstratives.com.
