The Seatpost

The seatpost. In BMX the seatpost has come in all shapes and sizes throughout the years. What once was a glorious 12″-plus long tube, often bent into laid back styles, is now a 2″ long stub, if it even exists at all. Tubing diameters  increased, then decreased once again. A comfortable place to relax in between runs has evolved into an uncomfortably low object that differentiates BMX bikes from their scooter bretheren.

It is our mission to save the seatpost from extinction, one blog at a time.

    Hi,

    I just tried to restore my Haro Master from 1985 I plan to use for transportation and commuting aroung with my daughters. Among the few parts I need to replace is the seat. I tried to think about that and discovered that nowadays BMX tends to get rid of the seat post. I felt a kind of trouble just before discovering your blog. I feel less lonely now. Thanks a lot.
    Maybe I will try to get a laidback one.

    Best regards,

    Eric
