    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.
