what are the advantages of doing the wedge seat post mod? For one isn't it heavier and for two ive heard you cant even tighten it down very much or else the seat post turns into and oval. From what iver heard are there no advantages?

You can lower your seat like 3/4 of an inch lower.

No seat clamp..

Because a seat clamp takes up space.

people are just getting retarded with trying to save weight in the wrong places. i like the old fashion seat post and clamp set up nothing wrong with it. it isnt that much heavier.

yeah a regular seatpost and clamp are actually lighter than the wedge mod.
all the wedge mod allows is for a cleaner bike look and a lower seat. but with how low frames are now, theres really no need to lower your seat more than slammed.

oh.
well if your worried about ovalization, get the short stolen post.
seeing as the expansion area is higher up, it will put stress at the main upper tube junction, which is stronger than the middle of the tube

i think im going to go to the bike shop i work at and get the stuff. And im going to cut my post way down so that it wont ovalize. Because in theory its stronger if its shorter. And stringer at the top. So im going to cut the post down and get a shorter bolt that way it will prolly stay the same weight not that it matters....

You do realize that if you want to make your own wedge mod, you're going to need access to a welder. right?
