There are a lot of titanium seat post fans out there. Thanks to titanium’s inherent ‘spring’, the material works well in an area where vibration absorption is important. Like a seat post. After building bikes out of the stuff for a little over a year now, Sklar decided it was time to add a few titanium seat post options to the mix as well.
Available in either straight or setback, the two posts are hand made from high grade titanium in Sklar’s shop in Bozeman, MT. In order to get the 15 or 18mm setback numbers, the post uses a bendy curve that requires at least 110mm of seat post to be exposed from the frame (and have an 85mm minimum insertion). Max rider weight is 280lbs.
Currently, the 0, 15, and 18mm setback posts are available in only 27.2mm diameters and 310mm lengths. Built with ENVE saddle clamp guts, the posts are available for $279 for the straight post, or $299 for either setback version.
