Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Seatpost Question

Alright don't smack me because I have used the search function to look at each of these seatposts individually and just seatposts in general.

Ok I am totally torn between three seatposts. I ride a Mark V (46:18), I am about 225 (and dropping), and I ride a minimum of 10 road-only miles a day.

I am looking at the Salsa Shaft, the FSA FR-270, and the Thomson Elite. I know that those three are very different levels of quality and price. I like the idea of the Salsa because you can change the tilt without undoing to saddle. I like the FSA because it is cheapish (and it matches my headset not that that matters) and I may not really NEED the best, and I like the Thomson because they are known for being quality.

I have heard pros and cons about both and now I turn to you guys and gals to tell me what the hell I should do.

Companies other than Thomson make seatposts?
