Damn - seeing as how this is something I need, I'm having trouble with the idea that it would of cost me over $90.00 US to win this beat-up, faded one.

Well, I guess I'll be better prepared psychologically to reach deeper in the pocket the next time one pops up.

Good ending to this story: for a refresher, Turq blue Ringle 26.8 post in half-ass condition goes for over $90, which I lose and then ask around here whether that kind of money is normal for these things, and I learn the ugly truth.

Yeah, so I just paid Rumpfy $180 for a 0 rise, 135mm turq Zooka I'd been hunting for 2 years, but $100 for a beat up seat post seemed crazy to me...Well, a little patience and good timing presented me with a buy it now option for this beauty for $125:
