Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

Hi guys,

I'm looking at lightening up my Norco XR C3. I ended up in the uncharted waters of aliexpress and came across a few interesting items, one being this seatpost. It's got a lot of reviews there: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3284226 ... b201603_53

Any experience with this one or any other aliexpress parts, mostly handlebars and seatposts? Any tips are appreciated, thank you in advance!

That's my standard go-to seatpost, I own several of those. No issues.

I've had good luck with Ali parts generally. Also had a few carbon bars etc.

Thank you for the feedback. How do you choose which to get with so many options? Highest reviewed?

They are usually on Ebay also I have bought two of these myself there

They are great posts & average 191 gr (27.2x350mm) before any cutting

Only thing to be aware is one bolt does face up ...I use a super flow flite saddle so no problem :wink:

Number of sales usually, or simply the cheapest.
