The Seatpost

The Roox S4 Seatpost
The Problem:
The Coyote XC-2 can use one of two sizes of seatpost, depending on which batch it came from. Some use a 27.2mm seatpost, and as these are easy to come by, I won't go into detail on these.

The others use a 31.2mm seatpost. These can be an absolute bastard to get hold of (believe me, I speak from experience).

The Seatpost Solution:
There are only a few companies that manufacture 31.2mm seatposts. These are the ones I have found so far:

  • Syncros - the 7075 Aluminium post is available in 31.2mm / 425mm length.
  • Roox - the S4 post [pictured] is available in 31.2mm / 430mm length.
  • Ritchey - the Logic post is available in 31.2mm.

The Shim Solution:
The alternative is to use a shim to let the bike accept a 27.2mm seatpost. There are a number of manufacturers who make a shim in the correct size, including:

  • USE - Shims available with an outer diameter of 31.2mm and an inner diameter of 27.2 or 25.0mm.
