This afternoon, I get a phone call. “____ bike shop in town referred me to you.”

Ok, what’s up?

“I need a really long seat thing.”


“Yeah. It needs to be 20 inches long.”

Quick calculating in head… wow, 500mm? What kind of bike is it, a folder?

“Mountain bike.”

?!??!? Really?

“It’s a Mongoose. Anyway, it needs a 20 inch seatpost. Maybe longer.”

Dude, your bike does not fit. You need a different bike.



“No, seriously, I need a 20 inch seatpost…how much would it cost”
