    Red or Gold Seatposts?

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Hi all -

    Does anyone know who carries a red or gold seatpost? I've looked at some of KCNC's products which carry both, but I heard that the company had some problems with the titanium bolts snapping and saddles flying off. Anyone have any experience with KCNC products?

    Thanks in advance

    Out of curiosity, I did a search on RoadBikeReview's forums for KCNC seatposts. One thread, in particular, caught my eye. Somebody who apparently works at a bike shop said that he sells a lot of the Pro Lite post. He spoke favorably of them. He mentioned that there were some quality control issues at one time, but that they'd been ironed out by KCNC. The post was from May of 2009. You might go to the RBR and so your own search to see what comes up.

    In looking at KCNC's site, I noticed that the posts are zero offset. Do you know whether that will work for you? I, personally, have to use a post with quite a bit of offset in order to get my knees properly positioned on my pedals. Just an additional thought to throw out there.

    Not solid, but you can engrave these with a red or gold pattern: http://www.purelycustom.com/p-270-al...ost-272mm.aspx

    check these out

    Not sure if this is what you are looking for but http://www.eighthinch.com also Origin 8 and Kalloy Uno make anodized seatposts, handlebars, etc.

    They probably aren't the highest quality or lightest, but they are colored!

    The fixters love coordinating their rides
