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