I always wondered what would be lighter, a GB4 25.4mm steel seat post or my 25.4mm aluminum seat post with clamp attached to a KH bracket.
The aluminum seatpost is an El Cheapo Trans X seat post that I bought for 17 bucks a few years ago. Other combos may vary.
The steel GB 4 seat post is 11.5" long. The aluminum seatpost/kh combo is 12" long.
The aluminum/KH combo weighs in at 1 lb. 3.6 oz.
The GB4 weighs in at 13.20 oz.
As it happens, the tilt on my aluminum seat post nearly matches the GB4. It was an easy decision to toss the aluminum seat post in favor of the GB4.
