Sette Ryde St-456 Coil Suspension Seatpost
Smooth out your ride without breaking the bank with the Sette Ryde ST-456 suspension seatpost. The Ryde ST-456 features an infinitely adjustable dual bolt seat clamp allowing you to put your saddle at the perfect angle. The 3/4 inch suspension travel has adjustable preload so you can make the suspension as hard or soft as you like.
I switched from full suspension to aluminum hard tails after I discovered how much I like climbing, but man was the ride harsh. I know this isn't top of the line, but I bought it years ago just to see if it would be worth investing in a much more expensive suspension post...I haven't changed it. Despite the awful aesthetics, the monthly application of grease to keep the squeaks at bay, and my riding buddies ridiculing comments that question my age and manhood, I definitely recommend this "house brand" post.
I bought one of these about 3 years ago to replace a air suspension model that failed (discontinued, surprise!) which has performed perfectly. The black faded to a nice gold color ( which matched the color scheme of my bike) and it had the splined angle adjuster. The next one I bought more recently for a second bike has the two bolt adjuster and has not faded. Both have suited me fine.
I have 2 of these seat posts because they work so well. My 10 year old son has a Specialized hard tail, I put this on it and he loves it.
Solidly built with nice finish. Good quality seatpost wiil. Tell you more after 12 months of usage but so far satisfying product.
Nice seatpost, great finish and fit, def worth the money to smooth out the ride on my wife's hardtail mtn bike. After adjusting the seat height for susp. sag she is very happy with her bike. Only downside is that after a week of use it squeaks horribly, going to take it apart and try greasing the internals. If that fixes the issue this will be a 5 star product.
