The TiMania seatpost from ControlTech is possibly one of the most handsome posts we've seen in quite some time. Perfectly walking the line between elegance and minimalism, it’s sure to find a home on many titanium enthusiast's builds. Constructed from the light, yet surprisingly stiff 3AL/2.5V titanium, the TiMania seatpost proves itself to be on par with many of the world’s leading aluminum alloy seatposts. By machining holes in the end of the post, as well as utilizing a minimalist carbon cradle coupled with titanium hardware, ControlTech has succeeded in making a respectably light seatpost. This lightweight platform paired with the durable and vibration dampening properties of titanium make the ControlTech TiMania seatpost the ideal choice for the aesthetically discerning and technically savvy titanium enthusiast.
We recommend having your ControlTech TiMania seatpost installed by a competent mechanic using a properly calibrated torque wrench. It is imperative that all torque ratings for your seat collar and frame be followed while installing your ControlTech TiMania seatpost. Additionally, the use of a titanium specific grease should be used on all hardware. For the ideally uniform titanium aesthetic, pair your ControlTech TiMania seatpost with the TiMania road handlebar, mountain handlebar, stem, and headset spacers .
