Broken Seat Post

Today my Miyata seat post broke, right below the three little tack welds by the
big H-shaped plate. Has anybody else had this problem? Is there any heat
treatment that will be affected by my welding it back together?

Hi Chris.

Kris Holm engineered a device that replaces the standard Miyata seat post. It
uses bicycle rails (for regular or suspension seat posts) and has a front post
to mount a brake handle. We ordered about 40 of them and they’re due any day. As
soon as the shipment arrives we’ll list the item in our catalog.

I attempted to respond to you directly, but my email was returned (even after
removing ‘removethis.’)

That happened to mine too. Old Miata seat posts were weaker than ones made after
some date I don’t remember. I got a new seat post from Tom Miller and haven’t
had any more problems.
