The seatpost is simply the connecting piece between bike and saddle. The saddle is attached to it and with it you can adjust the seat height. To vary the height of the seat post, the saddle clamp attached to the frame must be loosened and tightened later. The saddle clamp can be plugged as a single component on the seat tube from the bike, or is integrated directly into the frame. Seatposts are available in many different diameters, so you have to pay attention to the dimensions of your seat tube when retrofitting. If in doubt, you can measure this measure with a caliper. Before that, however, you have to loosen the saddle clamp, take the seat post together with the saddle out of the seat tube and then measure the inside dimension of the tube.

This will allow you to adjust the saddle height even while driving, and you'll be able to better respond to fast changes of uphills and downhills. Telescopic seat posts are available with up to 150 mm adjustment range, which is also sufficient for tall drivers.
In modern telescopic seat posts, the mechanism is operated hydraulically with oil. Cheaper models work with a cable. Often the cables of the seat post are guided inside by the bike and so fall visually hardly on. If air enters the system on a hydraulic telescopic seat post, it must be vented as in a hydraulic disc brake.
