Looking for recommendations for a seatpost extender for my sons Framed, Defendent Pro which is 25.4mm seatpost.

Why do you need one? BMX bikes are not made for seated pedalling.

To ride the bike on rollers and to just ride at casual at events

Flatland Fuel has a bunch of tall (300mm+) 25.4mm pivotal seatpost:

I like having my seatpost high enough, so that I can just barely pedal while sitting... lol

I just put an S&M Long Johnson on my 10year old son's bike.. In this picture, his seat post cannot go any lower because it's bottomed out on the bb..

If you go on rollers, sitting is a bit easier/safer (at least to get started). Plus a casual cruise doesn't mean you have to do any tricks or even stand. Being able to sit down and pedal is nice sometimes.

BMX bikes are made for whatever you choose to do with them. I've seen people ride 150 miles in two days for an event on them. I've seen jumpers, flatland, and even just transportation because they are convenient size for storing inside.

Questioning something with a backhanded comment like that is a great way to annoy others, and if you work in a shop setting selling ANYTHING, you WILL lose sales with that kind of wording.

If it isn't your bike, don't worry about it.

It wasn't a backhanded comment. Some people think you need 2 feet of seat post to ride and you don't. That's all I was saying.

I have a fist of post and can pedal seated.

Note that no one said two feet, or even a post length.

All I did was call you out for your pretty blunt comment about him wanting a longer post ("bmx bikes are not made for seated pedaling"), which you don't agree with for whatever reason. You took off with speculation that he wanted a mile of seatpost without getting clarification or checking into the bike he mentioned.

Most BMX bikes come with a pretty short post these days (as I am sure you know). His kids bike has maybe 3 inches or so of visible post (which is surprisingly a long post):

Well if you go with the second option, at least then you are owning up to being a bit of an asshole.

I have a q r clamp also, but I can’t get it to stay. Any tips on how to stop the seat from sliding? Seems like you have an ideal setup btw

100%. I am aware of who I am. I'm cool with it.

"You took my comment the wrong way and proceeded to nit pick every detail and bit of grammar but I'm an asshole. Fuck you Dave."

Please explain how that statement can be "taken incorrectly"? There is no hidden meaning or different context. You spelled it out that your opinion is that "BMX bikes are not made for seated pedaling" VERBATIM.

I'll politely pass, I am happily married.

Like said. Fuck you Dave. You were looking for an argument and you're a pedantic twat. I've seen you do the same thing to other people. BMX bikes aren't intended for seated pedalling. I'm not arguing or being rude. There's nothing to call me out on. You are not a hero. You're a fucking dick.

Doesn't pedantic roughly translate to following rules exactly, if not to an exagerated level? Wouldn't saying BMX bikes were not designed for seated pedaling be pedantic in a sense? I've seen an awful lot of people do it without causing harm to themselves. I think "pedantic c***" in this case would be incorrect usage, as well as unnecessarily foul.

Call it whatever you want. I simply stated a fact and now we have a page of some asshole that thinks he's being a hero for calling me out for something. I've explained myself more than once and still we have our virtous hero being a fucking dick about it.

Never said that I am some sort of "hero", don't believe that in the least. I just called you out for being a self-righteous douche canoe about bikes having specific purposes and implying that there is no wiggle room on it, which is clearly your belief and you will argue all day about it.

It's a bike, it has a seat, you can sit and pedal if you want/your post allows. Why is that so hard for you to understand? You are LITERALLY trying to tell people how THEIR BIKES are supposed to be ridden, because you somehow think you know the intent of every BMX bike designer.

Who's trying to be the "hero"?

Self righteous? Who's the asshole calling me out for nothing? I told you more than once that I wasn't being rude. Bmx bikes are not made for seated pedalling. Fact. You didn't have any fucking reason to call me out. Then you continue fucking arguing about it. Fuck you Dave. You are a virtue signaling self righteous bag of shit. I'm done arguing with you. I'm sure you're not though because you're a fucking argumentative cunt. Maybe spend less time at work and you won't be such a fucking asshole.

Its obvious bmxs are not designed for seated pedalling. Anyone that isn't a fucking asshole can look at one and figure that out. I was never telling people how to ride. I simply stated what to me is an obvious fact and now the whole thread is you "calling me out". Go play in traffic.

There's no "fact" in your opinion on what BMX bikes are designed for, because, after all, you do not speak for the people who came up with BMX bikes, nor were you a part their original design, and you don't design them currently. FACT.

People have been sitting and pedaling for DECADES. Seat posts used to be laid back to allow more room between the seat and bars, which, dare I say it, ALLOWED FOR EASIER SEATED PEDALING. BMX bikes were originally for kids who ripped around the neighborhoods, and jumped the occasional curbs etc. Seats have (until about a decade ago) typically been raised up enough to sit and pedal (as well as other tricks) all over. FACT.

Pretty much every BMX video from before about 2005 had some seated pedaling in it somewhere. FACT.

There are tricks that require seated pedaling. FACT.

Check out flatland from the 80's and 90's. Seated pedaling ALL DAY LONG. FACT.

The pros you look up to likely have pedaled while sitting down. I'd even bet you likely have as well at some point.

It's funny to me that you resort to name-calling and telling me to play in traffic. Tells me you are a bit upset.

Best part? I LOVE that you keep reacting so poorly. You know what you are saying isn't accurate, yet you refuse to let it go.
