Re: how to make a cheap layback seatpost.
Thanks Dan, I think I might have to get another though. I thought a little more about it after I rode it a little while that only the 2 inch "ballooned" part of the handlebar is gripping in the seat stay, so I'm a little worried the the concentrated pressure might be putting too much stress on the weld, and because it can only grip there I only have one seat height, and I would like it a little lower. But at least now I know how much of a better/more comfortable ride I can have!
"Finishing" a project means you either lost interest or gave up.
