Nice ride – not enough smaller framed bikes on here

This may sound like an odd comment/question, but do you know what the seatpost is??

I've got one just lik it on my Wcked (and thought it was just a cheapie), but now I see another Fat with the same post and I can't believe that's a coincidence.

The post is IRD. Originally 26.8, turned down to 26.4 and polished up to meet Pearl's approval. Really happy how the post turned out.

Love your choice of components, a fresh breeze, seems "everyone else" is taking the easy route and going Shimano.

The tan tires are a bit off when it comes to era. Think they came in 93? Frame must be pre 91. I'd go for black skinwall tires.
