Almost any 7/8" BMX seatpost will work.  I'm using a Primo Rod post on
my Coker with a rail bracket.  The problem with BMX posts is that they
are steel and heavy.

I think the B'atch post is a fixed position post meaning that you cannot
adjust the angle of the seat.  I don't know if its fixed angle is what
would be good for a unicycle seat or not.  I'd rather have a post that I
could adjust the seat angle.

I use an XS one on my Coker. Works great with a Wilder bracket. It cost
around $25. I bought it at www.danscomp.com, but the site now just has a
25.4 one on sale. See if you can find one like the XS Deely Stan shown
there, but in 22.2.

I am also looking for an adjustable rail-type seatpost, and was wondering.....
Are these seatposts easily attainable? and what's the probability of me being
able to find a post of this size at my local bike shop?

thanx a lot,

-Dylan

hey your right John,i went downtown to the shop and they had a Primo Rod
just sitting there for $18.95.so i bought it and will be putting it on
tonite.

holy crap,the thing is a tank,its like 22 ounces!!but it will work.now
im glad the Kore post was out because in fact its not adjustable.

thanx,nathen for your idea of the XS,but i read your note after jumping
on the Primo.the XS is 4 ounces lighter (so it says).

the lightest one appears to be the Poverty post at 16 ounces if anyone
cares to know.

Dylan,if its as easy for you as it was for me,all you got to do ride
down to the shop.

Yup, they're heavy.  The BMX jumpers have not discovered aluminum.

When used on the Coker I get to cut off most of the post and that
lightens the load a bit.

See if you can get the alloy seat guts (the parts that grab the rails).
The steel slabs that come with the Primo post are not the most rail
friendly design.  You can see the alloy seat guts at
<http://www.danscomp.com/>.  The 4oz weight difference between the Primo
and XS is probably due to the alloy seat guts.

Many of the BMX posts are pretty much the same.  Seatposts from Primo,
Haro, and other brands are pretty much identical except for the branding
and labeling.  There is no need for anyone to get hung up on specific
brands.
