    Seat post

    I am shopping for a new seat post. I have only been biking for a month. I was wondering if I should go and get a carbon fiber seat post or just stay with Al alloy.

    The reason I need a new one is because my leg make it so that I need a 11' of clearance form the exit of the seat post, thus I need to get a 360 mm seat post or longer.

    Also if its need, my current seat post diameter is .0272 m Thanks for the input.

    Is morality determine by when no human is watching you or when no being is watching you? For if it is the latter, I can not be a moral person for I know God is with me each and every day.

    Go with a Thomson seatpost. It will last you forever. There is no need for a carbon post on a mountain bike.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    Stick with a good alloy post e.g. Thomson. They make a 27.2 x 410mm. Clickety click.

    A carbon seatpost doesn't make much (if any) difference on any bike.
