Photo credit

The credit for the Moots and the Eriksen photo is twentynineinches
who I think have done some really nice photos if you like the 29"er thing....def-o worth a look..

In terms of those bikes, I am particularly interested in the Eriksen seatpin...it uses headset top caps to clamp the rails, so I'm thinking it must use some sort of sideways binding mechanism on the rails...hmmmmmmmm.

I'm not a big fan of 29ers but that Eriksen looks very nice.

The seat clamp looks just like in the old fashioned style of seat clamps but a bit more blingyish ?

remember them ?, thye always used to twist or allow the saddle angle to drop

im with you, is the bonty one similar?

dave said...

The Bonty one clamps two convex forgings which hold the rails, against/into the polished forged head which has a corresponding concave profile. Pretty effective, and doesn't rely on serations to hud your saddle in place. Result being no restriction in saddle angle, and no serations to tear out if/when saddle angle is caused to move. Need a fair bit of grunt with the ojd 5mm though... Only any use if you want a 27.2 02 31.6 too...
