    Seatpost 27.2 Zero Setback Dual Bolt

    I'm searching for a black aluminum or carbon zero setback seat post for my road bike, 27.2 mm, dual-bolt (front/rear design) so I can get any small fraction of tilt adjustment. Haven't had any luck finding a steal on Thompson, Easton, Ritchey, etc - I'm looking to spend $30 shipped, clean used, if I can, but will entertain higher cost.

    Pretty optimistic aren't I? CompetitiveCyclist has the wrong size for $29 as of 1/7/2015...

    FB4K - This December, 2014, 5288 kids received bikes for Christmas. For many, it was their first bike, ever. Every bike, new and used, was donated, built, cleaned and repaired. That amounts to well over 10,000 volunteer hours this fall, just in the Twin Cities. Check us out on FaceBook: FB4K.

    Lotsa luck finding a Thomson for $30 shipped. However, these are great seat posts and worth the extra money. If you search on eBay, you can often buy decent used Thomsons for $50-60 and might get lucky bidding on one for a lower price.

    You are so correct...which is why I don't have one yet...but if the right offer comes up at the right time, I'll bite.
