    seatpost with setback bad for the frame?

    Would a seatpost with setback be bad for a frame in terms of putting more pressure in the back of the seattube and make it stretch over time at a greater rate then a straight tube? Would i be better off getting a longer stem? When i ride i find that its more comfortable with by butt at the very bad edge of the saddle. So thats why im thinking of getting a seatpost with setback. THanks

    A seatpost with offset will give you a more comfortable riding position and as long as you have a reasonable amount of post inside the frame there is no danger of stretching or denting or whatever.

    You have everything to gain and nothing to loose... so go for it.
