About Seat Posts
A good quality seat post will save weight and hold your saddle securely. Seatposts are made in various materials, alloy and carbon being the two most common, alloy posts are lightweight, durable and cost efficient, while carbon posts are the popular choice for top end machines. Seat posts vary in where they hold the saddle relative to their own centre line so make sure you have enough adjustment on your saddle rails to allow for this or you could end up with your saddle too far forwards. A seat post needs to fit your frame exactly and are measured by as little as 0.2mm. When choosing a new one, either read off the measurement from your old seat post or measure it carefully with a vernier calliper. Make sure you lubricate the frame (unless they're carbon fibre) before insertion or you'll struggle to get it out again.
About the Tifosi brand
Introduced in 2000 the Tifosi brand was one of the first customised bike brands of the new millennium. The intention was to inspire European component parts makers in the face of the transfer of large scale bike building to the Far East. After all, bespoke tailoring has always been the hallmark of quality. The Tifosi are enthusiastic supporters of the sport in Italy which is where Chicken’s Columbus tubing originated, now produced under the CK Columbus brand name in the Far East. Tifosi frames are powder coated to the highest quality in Belgium and built in-house to customers’ specification, using a variety of group sets, wheels and parts. The build kits and group sets offer component mixes in terms of balance and extraordinary good value. Quality brand name parts are all too evident – Campagnolo, Mavic, Selle Italia, Gruppo 3T, Vredestein, T.A., Selcof – are European components well known for performance and reliability.

Product Q & A

There is marked increments on the post, stating the maximum limit. I don't want to remove my post but I guess it was about 50mm, therefore 250mm long. (but this is from my memory and a guess)
I have a specialized secteur 2010 road bike. The seatpost on this bike is 27.2 diameter. I want to put the Tifosi seat post in to improve comfort. I am 6 foot tall with 33" inch inside legs, on the heavy side, weighing 13st 12 pounds. Do I need to buy anything else or do I just swap the posts?
Also, does anybody know of any nice brown comfort but performace seats that would fit this post
Many thanks in advance.
A Selle San Marco Regal comes in brown with carbon or titanium rails as does the Brooks Swift with chrome rails or titanium but these are more expensive thery will last a life time once broken in. Remember saddle comfort is more important than necessarily going for lightest weight.
The clamp is standard two halves with a locating groove in both.
