Because of the titanium color .99.5 percent of my bike is black these days I am still bummed out that Thompson never made a pivotal seatpost .

I really can't think off too many parts i trust being Ti. Axles and bolts maybe? Cranks would potentially be next on the list but've never tried a set

Does anyone use the TI FEC female version? It's 3/8 correct - best way to get it to work with a 14mm frame?

I have 3/8 ti but they sell 14mm. Any decent welder can burr your dropouts to fit either size axle. I had it done for $30.

I didn't know they sold a 14mm female, thought they were all 3/8 and the male version is 14mm.

You may we'll be right about the male/ female thing.

Those look promising
Not sure how they compare to the profile minimag in terms of strength

Did you know FEC can also do custom orders?

These seatposts look beautiful! But why should one use a titanium post when aluminium is strong enough? I can hardly imagine that they are lighter, or am I wrong?

Nope they are all mine : )


For the Ti weight question, honestly I've been looking for a longer oil slick seatpost for years and this custom just gave me the ability to do it, it really didn't matter if it were Ti or not. For me anyway.
