We’ve got got the shots of the pre-production “Ragley Spike” seatpost we’re doing. We took a newly announced stock model from a very reputable manufacturer, changed a few things, and added a unique graphic that probably makes no sense until you see it in the frame.
Essentially, instead of having a line up the back with height markets on, this has a line that wraps around the post, which will make it hilariously easy to set the post to the right height, after you’ve dropped it, rather than having to peer at the back of the post. As the post goes into the frame, the point at which the height line crosses into the frame will move “around” the seat tube.
The post is 7075 butted aluminium tubing, is coming in 31.6 and 27.2mm sizes, and a 400mm length. It’ll have a 5yr guarantee. Pricing and other things to be confirmed. More details over on the Shedfire site.
