Hi,

I have recently bought a Cube Acid 2012 18 inch bike. I have put the stock Easton seatpost to its lowest level, however when I am sat on the seat my feet just about touch the ground. I was firstly thinking cut some of the seatpost by 50mm but have decided on buying a new seatpost and would like an idea of what I should get as being a newbie I've not got a clue, but must be 300mm. My budget is up to 50.00

Thanks

You've posted this in the road section but I'm assuming it's MTB as you have an 18-inch frame.

If you're looking for a decent seatpost, consider this:-

Just bought one myself - make sure you get the correct width.

Oooops sorry dude I was meant to have placed it in the mtb section. Thanks for the advice, I've just taken a look at the website, unfortunately the shorter post is out of stock and the wrong width, the search continues.

Surely it'd be too short if you could place both feet flat on the ground when sat in the seat?
