    The seatpost of your bike is one of the components that absorbs vibrations the most when you ride. If you use your bike mostly on paved roads, then that’s not a problem. If, however, you like to ride off road or do fancy tricks, then the seatpost is important to your comfort. Bike seatposts can be designed for a specific type of bicycle or adjustable for multiple types. They’re generally made of aluminum, carbon, or titanium. Some include a suspension mechanism that will buffer your behind during a bumpy ride. Seatposts can be straight or set back, depending on whether you need to move closer or further away from your crankset to get the best ride.
