Product Description

The Lynskey titanium seatpost is the picture of simplicity – both in form and function.

Beautifully crafted from aerospace grade 3Al/2.5V titanium to exacting tolerances and anchored by Enve’s slim single bolt clamp that not only provides nearly infinite angle and extended fore and aft adjustments, it also puts your saddle on “lock down” so you can set it and forget it.

This new pillar of pedaling pleasure comes with a Bright Brushed finish in 300mm & 400mm lengths. Includes clamp hardware for 7mm round saddle rails and 7x10mm oversized carbon rails.

Enve Clamp Bolt Torque: 8-12 Nm (71-106 in-lbs, 5.9-8.8 ft-lbs)

Strengths:    Light
Comfortable
Indestructible
Pretty simple setup


Weaknesses:    Cost, although comparable to most carbon seatposts

Bottom Line:   
This one does everything right.
In particular, I found a notable increase in comfort over my prior Thomson Masterpiece.
And of course it matches my R340 perfectly.

Strengths:    This ENVE clamp is as easy as it get's to adjust and get set up, Ti makes for a very compliant ride.

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
I've had the Lynskey Setback Ti post w/ Enve clamp for several months and have fallen in love with how compliant of a ride results from the use of this post. I've ridden several aluminum and carbon fiber posts, and although I didn't know there was any "issue" with them there clearly was, those posts are stiff and unforgiving. If you ride on rough roads or trails, this is the post for you.

Strengths:    Resilient ride. Made in the USA. Light.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I have been riding my set back ti post on a Lynskey Pro 650 for about four months. I first rode it with a Easton carbon which was a tad lighter. But there is no comparison in ride. The ti post compliments the ride characteristics of the frame. It all comes together and makes you think you are on a short travel full suspension, of course reality sets in when you stand up . If you own a ti bike buy it. You will like it. I am very pleased and happy with my Lynskey set up. I just wish I was as fast as it wants to be ridden. Thanks Lynskey for such a sweet ride. You guys deliver. Next post goes on my 2000 Litespeed Ultimate. Pedal on..............

Master Olympic Campagnolo Record 9 Speed Shamal Titanium

I've acquired my holy-grail, a Colnago Titanio 57cm, so I've moved all the parts from the old holy-grail Steel Master over. I picked up a Kestrel with the 9-speed record donor gruppo, and came up with this masterpiece. [ATTACH=CONFIG]282911[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]282924[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]2829 ... Read More »

So I was taking a corner wide to avoid the wet leaves and had to change my line. There was a bit of dry that ran through the leaves. I knew that my chances weren't good but it looked to be my only hope. Well wish in one hand and s**t in the other and I probably don't hafta say which one filled up ... Read More »
