I made my own lay back seatpost by using a long seatpost (appx. 14 inches) into which I hammered the thickest piece of rebar that would fit. Then I bent the post to my exact need. It's solid and I will do it again for future builds. I got the long seatpost from a municipal sponsored bicycle recyle depot. Cheap parts.
Thanks for the reply, Chaz. I would think that with the rebar tight in the seat tube it would prevent buckling when bending as well. I imagine you used a torch to heat so it could be bent. Looks like yo need a shave too. Thanks again, DanVal
Reporting back on my layback seat post attempts. I followed Chaz's advice and made my own. The first attempt was a fail using a 5/8" metal forming steak I found in the rebar section at Home Depot. The darn thing was a perfect fit but it snapped in two ruining the seat post along with it. Attempt #2. Using 3 smaller pieces of rebar, (they bend) jammed them in tight and made the bend in several 1/4 increments to achieve the correct angle I needed. It worked great! I appreciate the help. Thanks!
