Well I need one. XTR would be ideal needs to be long or other alloy post must be strong one. I bend cheap post when riding XC and I am not even heavy.

So anything XTR would be great. Other options are fine too.

I hate that post beside I run a shop I could get one new for £7 trade. that i the sort of post I have bent in the past and it would not look right on the build.

Post need to be a bit retro, otherwise it will be a Thompson I will buy.

Perfect as I-ride is out of stock of thomson in the size I need for a while. Scruffy is not a problem bending is. I am also a bit of a bike snob and thomson fit's that.

Pics and price please.

Still wanted. I am going to have to use a Kalloy and at the end of the month a new Thomson purchase will happen when I-ride get more stock so if any one has anything under £40 (cost of a new Thomson to me) let me know.
