KisBikeCo Twist Socket Seatpost 26

KisBikeCo Twist Socket SeatpostThis innovative new seatpost from KisBikeCo. is designed to make your life a lot easier. Here are the details -

"The socket seat post is all about freedom. It gives you the chance to ride street all day without carrying a backpack or tools. It means you don’t need to take a bag to the skate-park with your socket set inside. All you need is a 6mm allen key, either in your pocket, or use a friends. If you need to fix a flat, re-align your wheel or take your pegs on and off, all you need is this seat post and your allen key.

Simply take your seat and post out of the frame and you have yourself a 17mm Hex socket and handle (The seat acts as a leverage handle) to go about your repairs. When you’re done, pop the seat and post back in the frame and off you go. Job done.

    Funny how they say 'they' 'innovated' this idea when they actually stole it from another company that thought of it first. That's shit's worse than stealing someone's bike!

    Ive got a better idea..a pivotal stem and bar..you just tighten it down and then it dost move

    my idea is way more inventive... i keep wax in my handle bar for when i find a nice street ledge... take the bar end off and put it in the bar tube. i usually keep a bud and some papers in there too sshhh

    wouldn't it be easier to switch the axles to female ones? Then all you'll need is almighty 6mm allen for the pivotal AND the pegs!

    In what world would that be easier?

    switching the axle would be a hassle, I know, but after that there'll be no need for a 17mm socket tool or this seatpost, the 6mm allen would be all you need.
    or you could buy a rear hub that already comes with a female axle!

    So you should by a female hub just like the one in the picture? I'm sure there are a lot of people who need more than a 6mm to prevent their wheel from moving, especially with pegs.

    i gues it would work. is probly heavier than like a animal though. would be most usefull for a bike with quick realese seat post clamp

    Your worried about the weight of your seat post?

  • rcrispin68

    Ok shut up haters...its a great idea...its just for it you were to ever NEED it..most people would have an allen wrench not a ratchet and socket.

    This means constantly messing with your seat-post bolt (which i hate) and twisting your seat its not supposed to be twisted with force. Plus like shaunyb123 said, Your rear wheel will not be tight at all.

    Oh and who is gonna take off their pegs and put them in their pocket, yet wont carry a wrench? same with a flat, who has a tube and doesn't want to carry a wrench.

    Nice thought tho

    It's not really for if you decide to take your pegs off mid session, it's for if your wheel comes out of place you can at least move it back, allowing you to get back to your proper tools to fix it.

    Firstly I thought what a great idea, but then I thought about it a bit more...
    If your going to innovativly eliminate one tool (socket/wrench) there must be a way to eliminate the 6mm hex key, storing it inside the seat padding for example?
    Then I remembered how many pivotal seats I have snapped, and thought about how little leverage a seat can offer - How tight will this possibly get your rear wheel? And is this tight enough to not have to be constantly re-aligning and moving you wheel becoming more of an annoyance than just carrying a backpack with a decent tool in anyway?
    I think the idea is good, but to be practical and worthwhile further product development is needed with perhaps a partnering strengthened seat with some sort of retractable and strong leverage.

    i know the guys at kis and one of my close friends is on the team and this is a brilliant idea and i think there was ideas of having a allen key fitted in under the seat somewhere not sure and also it gets your wheel surpising tight its only there in case you need like if you move your wheel and it starts buzzing and it doesn't need more product development as its not designed to be a tool you always use only if you really need it

    What a seriously great idea! I'm sure the weight weenies who run 1" long seat posts slammed wont like these.

    thats awesome. now you dont have to bring a backpack with a socket out to street ride. but is it worth $53 for the post and shipping?
