    making a tri bike out of my road bike on a budget

    I've got a seatpost on my bike that is not straight it has an angle on the post. My question is can I flip this around to get a more forward postion on the bike. I've got enough adjustment to get my seat angle right doig this.

    Some yes, most no. If it's a Thomson, yes. We really have to know the make and model.

    unsollicited advice.

    If you need to lower your bars as well, search for a Look Ergostem on Ebay, it's adjustable so it will allow you to settle into a more aero position gradually.

    Haven't you answered your own question? If you can get the seat angle adjusted properly with the post reversed, what's the problem? Usually that's the issue with reversing a post - the range of saddle angle adjustment is inadequate. Either way, it only takes about 5 minutes to try it.

    Yeah your probably right I guess I'm looking at the mount where the screws attach one side over hangs more than the other side. I'm wondering about the stress on the mount screws with it turn around.
