    i fabbed my own out of the stock seat post. didnt cost me a dime, i cut a pie shaped wedge out of the material ( like a relief cut) bent bar back until edges touched and welded a bead on the back of it. looks cool, strong, cheap. im 230 and have had this through two builds and about 500 miles.

    Yes, I think so. I remember the one end fit perfectly into the seat tube, but I really had to coax the seat on to the other half... I hope this answers your question.

    I did the same thing on my old BMX bike, but this looks like an easier solution. it looks better than my welds too, but that's here nor there.
