Precision Cycling Components All Mountain Post

BikeRadar verdict

70.0 out of 5 stars

"The lightest adjustable post out there and one that proves reliable. Not for the fashion conscious though"

Sunday, November 8, 2009 12.00pm By

The neoprene gaiter that helps keep the All Mountain Post working in the grime gives it a Heath Robinson look, but that's because it's machined in-house in Precision Cycling’s own small HQ; this is no big corporation farming its production out to Taiwan.

Activation is via the remote cable which pulls on a collar located on the post, in turn releasing pressure on a small captive ball-bearing that locks into one of three holes in the post’s upper stanchion. With the ball-bearing released, the post is free to move up under sprung pressure or down under rider weight. The post is available in 3, 4 and 5in versions.

The AMP’s mechanical simplicity keeps it working on and on through the rough, and its initial stiction becomes smoother over time. During a full year of testing, the only regular maintenance needed was a spray of light lube on the mechanics under the neoprene boot.

Side-to-side slop is apparent but not noticeable when riding. The 1in drop position is a great compromise, but is tricky to locate on the fly. Lever action is good, though after several months our friction-only lever became loose and popped right off its mount. The hardware is imperial-sized, meaning metric Allen keys won’t fit.
