Yea but it’s highly unlikely that he’s going to break those components, whereas the Cromo seatposts are just as prone to failure. Speaking from experience (5 broken seatposts, 6 broken seats) i’d go for the Thomson combination, i’ve got it and it’s lasted me really well.
my uni is like 6 months old? I’m not sure. I actually don’t have alot of money, I just like to think of different ways I can spend it on uni stuff. right now I have about $450, but my bar mitvah is in september so I think I’ll get alot of money from that because all my friends did. I’ll checkout the bedford price list now.
edit: I think I have the reeinforced one, but I broke off half of the peice that connects the seat. I only have 2 bolts holding it on now, and it wiggles like crazy and I’ll probably break the remaining 2.
edit: so I should get a 24.5 cromo seatpost with a shim?
spencer, santa clarita is near LA right? if so, wow you were up really late.
