I bought a syncros ti seat post a while back that is in excellent condition. It does however have a slight bend (sold as such so no complaints). I bought it to replace a post I already had as it is cosmetically better. The bend doesn't prevent it getting to the height I need, so curious to know what people think about whether they would use it without question or whether they would worry?

How much of a bend?

Does it show up in pics? Could you post comparison pics of the two posts?

It's a very slight bend, almost few like a trick of the eye. If I get time I'll try and post some pics.

It depends what it's going to be used for... show bike, now worries, the occasional light ride, no worries... dedicated rider, well, I probably wouldn't.

Seems your table is bent. Don't ride the table. ;)

Seriously. I wouldn't care. If it ever goes wrong, despite I don't think it ever will, the tube would slowly bend further. You would see it coming long before it gets dangerous. Titanium is flexible like steel. It wont break like Aluminium would.

It gets used more than the bike.
