BMX Seat / Seat Post???

Is there any reason not to use a BMX seat / seat post on a mountain bike?

Sorry, I'm a noob

Sorry to hear that Cheeto. Thanks for the answers guys.

Just one more question, is 25.6mm and 25.4mm a negligible size? My frame says it takes a 25.6mm seat tube (which I'm having trouble finding), but I find lots of good ones in 25.4mm.

yes, there is a bit of a difference that can cause issues with certain frames.

yeah, a broken frame is an unhappy frame.

do they even make seat posts in 25.6mm? I'm having trouble finding one.
