I've got an old Titanium post for my Clockwork re-build (Top clamps still available as spares from Chain reaction) but I'm looking for the Multi coloured USE sticker to replace the old worn off one - any ideas?

I have one of the first SSP suspension seatposts, it stopped working about six years after I got it and USE sent all the replacement bits, a rubber boot plus some stickers FOC.......it's still going strong today, in fact I'm going to use it on my latest build!

I have an anodised blue USE seatpost 350mm like one of those in the photo above - how much do you think it's worth as I might be selling it? Cheers. PS It's in reasonable nick, anodising has faded a bit below insertion, a few 'tidemarks'.

There was a copy of that 'catalogue' in the box with the forks I had.
They did make some vary lovely stuff back then, I had the forks, post, bars and bar ends on my GT.

I'd love to get hold of another set of those original forks. 8)

Had a Ti post on my '93 Team Marin. It got nicked along with the whole Marin. I love my Pace but I still miss that Marin!

The post smoothed out loads of the bumps, along with the flite.
I have the aluminium version on my road bike.

Anyone want a NOS pair of Team Marin forks I still have them!

Hi I bought a USE alloy post in blue in its packaging brand new for 30 quid, I think if you put it up for 25 pound you should get it. If in decent condition. 8)
