Tall and Handsome
We designed the Tall & Handsome with strength and elegance in mind, but also to be super easy to setup and adjust. Like all PAUL components, it’s built to the highest standards for tolerance, function, reliability, and ease of use. Machined by us here in sunny Chico, California.

The Tall & Handsome has a generous setback of 26mm. If you don’t like setback in your seatpost this might not be for you, but if you ride a Brooks saddle that you can’t get quite far enough back, you’ll love this seatpost.
The shaft is precision ground in-house and the head is machined separately before being screwed and permanently bonded into the shaft.
The two bolts sit on spherical stainless steel washers that allow them to pivot and self-align to the cradle. The clamp can be adjusted to tilt the saddle’s nose up or down with a range of roughly 15 degrees overall. Precise micro angle adjustments are made by loosening one screw and tightening the other. This also allows the use of oval carbon-railed saddles.
Fore and aft position is adjusted by loosening both screws an equal amount and moving the saddle. Because we use two screws, slippage is completely eliminated.
As with all aluminum seatposts, it’s a good idea to periodically pull the post out of the frame, clean it, apply a thick coat of grease inside the seat-tube of the frame, and re-install. This keeps your post/frame from corroding and seizing, which could make it very difficult to remove years down the road.
