Maverick Seatpost

After much hoo-ing and ha-ing, we’ve finally got a hold of some Speedball posts. They’re great – buy one.
Speedball seatpost
The name possibly comes from a slang term for an intravenous dose of cocaine mixed with heroin or an amphetamine. You know, like an upper and downer all in one package 🙂

    I bet they’re expensive.

  2. Sideways Tim says:

    Not really. You could spend loads more on a golf bat or a fishing stick.

    I spoke to your Sales Manager earlier today who has put one aside for me – does that mean I’ll have two now….

    We have a sales manager?

    Weird little video, does the post have any “suspension” characteristics, like an office chair does?

  7. Sideways Tim says:

    Nope – it’s either up, or down. It’s actually a lot quicker in real life too. The fact that there’s no weight on it in the video makes it look like it’s dead slow, which it isn’t.

  9. crayons says:

    I am not sure ‘why’ really, I guess I don’t do the type of riding that required post-faffage

    Any test biks got one fitted Tim? Quite fancy one but would like to try one out first. I’ve always been a keep your seat post in one place type of guy. Then did a Cycleactive Weekend in the Lakes and they persuaded us to try lowering our posts for a pretty technical & steep descent (to my mind anyway) and it worked, though it did feel weird. It’s amazing how much one must use yer bum/upper thighs to guide the bike via the sticky uppy seatpost.

    Will have in the New Year.
