Instead of the beautiful, yet complex and difficult to mount Campagnolo two-bolt post, the Laprade design (patented in 1979) quickly became the most popular seat post design. It was initially licensed by SR in the early 1980s. The single-bolt saddle cradle allowed for easy mounting and very precise setting of the saddle angle. Very quickly the SR-Laprade seat post was original equipment on a wide range of bicycles.

Soon, many others were making posts with the Laprade design. More than a few were OEM (original equipment manufacturer) that were made just for bike factories, and have no logo. We have these anonymous, but well-made seat posts posted here.
