Syncros Titanium Seatpost

DESCRIPTION

  • A pillar of strength. Custom-drawn from seamless Ti3Al2.5V titanium alloy aerospace tubing, our Ti pillar promises a noticeably plusher and cushier ride in even the most gruesome and rocky terrain.
  • Pure speed. Twin-jacking bolt design means true micro-adjustment of your saddle without any teeth on your rails. So you're optimally positioned to grind away the competition without grinding away your rails.
  • There's more. A clamping mechanism designed to maximize contact area with the saddle. Because you need to keep a grip when you're landing massive air.

    very light, set it and forget it, wont rust, hard to scratch

    Weakness:

    none

    I bought my Syncros Ti seat post in 1996 when I was assembling my bike and it is still going strong!!!!!. I selected it because of how light it was. I was trying to assemble the lightest bike I could afford. You absolutely cannot go wrong buying one. It is very light and my fat butt has not broken or bent it yet. (200lbs +/-) I need to get new stickers for it but thats it. It would be very hard for you to tell how old it is because the Ti does not scratch easily. When I get new seats I am able to adjust the seat exactly how I want it to be. So far my Giant carbon frame (showing its age now) and Syncros seat post are the only things on my MTB that hasnt worn out. I use mine for cross country and city riding stop looking at reviews and buy it!

    Strength:

    No issues - tighten (correctly) and forget it!Bike bling at its' best! Ti tubing is less suspect to scoring from a seat tube. If it does get scratched, it can be buffed out nicely.

    Weakness:

    None

    I have used this since 1995! - it has seen 3 different frames. I am 175 lbs and just do CC riding. It seems a bit more "supple" than Aluminmum for taking the edge off - especially on hard tails or soft-tails. I dont think Syncros has made these for years. This is vintage and legit - still cooler than a new Moots or Kent Erickson post. If you can find on ebay or used sites - get it!

    Strength:

    seemingly indestructable
    you can feel the smoothness of ti at work, especially if you're on a hard tail
    range of adjustability

    Weakness:

    difficult to reach front adjustment bolt

    i've owned two of these posts. i've been fortunate enough to recieve one free and the other practically free. otherwise, i'm just a poor warehouseman who works hard for his bike stuff.

    these posts indeed do take some of the edge off of the bumps. i had one on my old steel karakoram after i took the control tech off. on fire roads with high frequency braking bumps, you really can feel the difference. i would'nt buy anything with a syncros label on it nowadays, but i am blessed to have been able to use these gorgeous ti posts on two of the bikes i've owned in the past four years.

    the front bolt on the post can be hard to reach with a three way or a multi tool, but that's a minor complaint. otherwise, i've experienced no problems. five stars.

    Strength:

    Light weight, adjustability

    Weakness:

    None so far and I have used the post for over three years.

    An excellent post considering that I have it set up on my rigid Cannondale. I have a SDG Ti railed saddle mounted on top...I have to lube the contact areas between the saddle and the post every once in a while or else it begins to squeek very loudly.

    Very easy to adjust the seat using the two allen bolts. Probably not the best post choice for a clydesdale like me (220#) but it has held up fine.

    A bit expensive but a good way to drop weight from the top of your bike.

    Strength:

    1. very strong
    2. very hard (looks like new forever !)
    3. very light

    Weakness:

    1. original threads of the bolts are very sensitive - tighten the bolts carfully !
    if you destroy them - put nuts or try making new ones at a metal workshop.
    2. no offset
    3. VERY expensive

    if you can afford it, and don't mind the no-offset

    I like sucking up the small stuff as my ti bike carbon wheels shows. The Syncros seatpost is well made, light and since putting it on my bike I have always smiled at it!

    this post is light and gives a smoother ride by absorbing more of the bumps than an aluminium post. quite an expensive post, got mine for just over $100USD in hong kong, but well worth it as it should last several years, judging by the sturdy looks.

    Strength:

    This thing takes abuse. Very light weight and after alot of water rides there is still no corrosion. Great length for taller riders.

    Weakness:

    Save your allowance!!!!

    If you put alot of abuse on your bike from jumps and such this will take all the punichment. You will not have to worry about this snapping on landing. Those who have sat on the rear tire while in motion know what I am talking about. Seat removal is easy to perform also. This is a must for hardcore riders that do alot of jumps

    Weakness:

    Mine broke on my Road bike under little to no stress on a mountain descent at 50mph. Syncros has made no effort to warrenty or even return emails.

    This seatpost worked well for a while on both Mt and Road bikes. Recently the post on my road bike broke at the seat binder desending on a mountain road at 50mph and almost killed me. After contacting Syncros by email a couple of times over the past week or so still no reply. Makes me very nervous about the post on my Mt bike. Also if syncros doesn't do anything to help I wouldn't buy any of their products again.
