Default Re: Suspension Seat Post That Doesn't Wobble?

Here is some photos I found...

I used a 1" seat post and a 7/8" seat post, spring, washer and a bolt.

The 7/8 post slides in the 1" seat post

the washer butted up against a small piece of 7/8 seat tube welded to the 1" seat tube to hold the washer in place.

The seat tubes have a channel slotted completely through them for the bolt. This eliminates the seat from wobbling and spinning and to keep the seat from lifting up. Once the bolt is through just cut the head off and grind down so it all slides in the seat tube of the frame.

A little more to it but that's basically it. I cant seem to find any pics yet of the bolt and slotted channels I made.
