Cheap little runner

How long does a Kona branded seatpost from the mid ‘90s last? After conducting exhaustive trials (or ‘commuting’ as many people refer to it),

built to last.

Still, good value at over 16 years old......

I can reveal that they last 16 years. On the way to work this morning a feeling of quiet calm descended and I felt the world took on a more laid back feel. Sadly, this was due to my slowly snapping seatpost and a gradual descent towards my back wheel.  Oops. Still, at 14 quid for a replacement, it’s a fair bit cheaper than most automotive parts. I wonder if this bolsters my case for a new commuter bike?
