Telescopic-Seatpost

It is very common that after trying any improvement in our bike we "get used to it quickly," and we do not know how to ride without improvement. A clear example of this is the telescopic seatpost.


Who would have told us a few years ago that while pedalling  we could change the saddle height? The comfort and security that  can give one of these parts is amazing especially if we like to practice mountain bike on  rough terrain.

Normally before starting a  downhill with big steps we stop and get off the saddle, and then put it in pedalling position. Who stops for a single obstacle? A simple vertical drop is enough to get hurt.


That " telescopic seatpost” is heavy, but the choice is very simple, weight, or safety. They are expensive, but have you thought how much it can cost to go ” flying” over the handlebars?

Our opinion is that the worst part of using a telescopic seatpost is the dependency that you create for  comfort and safety.
