Seat post

Seat post took 10 days or so to reach me in France. Easy to fit and the pre-load works well. The only niggle is that the saddle (viewed from above) moves from side to side a couple of degrees. Maybe this is the price you pay for suspension ? Overall not a bad bit of kit.

Great seat post, works better and is lighter than my last seat post.

I bought this to replace my old seat post which came with my mid range hybrid bike. The old seat post never worked well and eventually snapped after 10 years. I was hoping to spend less on a suspension seat post to be honest but the terrible reviews from customers and on independent review sites put me off the cheapest ones. I also went to a shop and was about to buy their £20 suspension seat post when I noticed how heavy it was. The Oxford one is lighter than my old one and lighter than the other one I saw in a shop. I don't know it's actual weight as they don't state that for some reason. I must say it works 10 times better than my old one. When I sit on it my weight (70kgs) causes a slight gliding movement of a few mm. It moves a little on bumpy paths and roads so it's working well. There is an adjuster nut at the base of the seatpost which I left as it was, this can stiffen or weaken the suspension depending on your weight and riding. At 300mm, it is the shorter of the 2 main lengths I saw for sale and therefore saves some weight. As you must insert the post about 10cm into the frame, this one will fit if you need up to 20cm between the frame and the base of the saddle. If you need up to 25cm then buy a 350mm long seat post...

Seatposts Guide

What are seatposts?

The seatpost is the extendable metal rod that slots into your bike’s frame, with a clamp at the top to hold your saddle.

Who needs a seatpost?

Every bike has a seatpost, but a common reason for fitting a new one is to get a longer post for a leggy rider. Weight saving is another prime reason for upgrading.

What are the choices?

You need to pick the right seatpost width for your frame, but then you will have a choice of materials, from practical aluminium to weight-saving carbon. Mountain bikers can also opt for dropper posts, which are tremendously useful out on the trails.

What should I buy with them?

You might need a different seatpost clamp to go with your new seatpost and hold it firm in your frame.

Anything else?

Finding out which seatpost width you need can be a tricky business. With luck it will be stamped on the inside of your bike’s seat tube. It is measured down to tenths of millimetres, so eyeballing it with the tape measure won’t work.
