Vibration transmission through seat post ...I'd like to sell you some vibration cancelling plugs for your handle bars :lol:
It all depends on how much seatpost you have showing. I have a Dean Ti post that's been on several bikes now. When I have it on the mtn bike, its very flexy and absorbs some of the trail imperfections. Stick it on a road bike with half the amount of post showing and it feels like any other post.

Categorically saying 'it doesn't make a difference?' Not so fast there Turbo!

The seatpost comes from the distributor here. If i do get it it will be the bob version. right now they only received a few 27.2mm regular version.

here are the weights for the hardware.

craddle. pretty light. Not much to do unless you go with carbon craddle. In comparison, the superzero craddle is 28.6gr.

Image

yokes. here we could save around 15gr. going with pop yokes, but there would be some modifying to do because the front bolt is a special bolt with manual adjustment. In comparison the superzero yokes are 29.5gr.

Image

here are the bolts. I'm sure you could save some by using regular titanium bolts. In comparison the superzero bolts are 19.6gr.

Image

and here is the post with no hardware. Its 350mm so by cutting the excess should save some weight. The superzero post is around 105gr, but is 335mm long.
