25.0mm Seatpost Options?

Well, it's time for me to get a new seatpost. The problem is that my frame is a late 70'd Liotto, and it takes a 25.0mm seatpost. I'm having trouble finding one with a clamp at a decent price. Thompson makes one, but that's going to cost me around $90 which seems like a lot. Also, I need one longer than the standard 250mm, that doesn't give me enough purchace into the seat tube. To top it all off, if I can find one with a bit of setback, that would be even better. If anyone knows where I might be able to find such an object, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance,

jp

Try ebay old Dura Ace was made in 25.0, but wouldn't likely be long enough.

I've seen at Nashbar, American classic 25.0 for about $40, but it is probably 250mm.

I've seen USE ALien posts but titanium or carbon at $130-140 but again out of your budget.

Since its an old bike, if you have the type that can transfer the whole clamp :
Pyramid Alloy Seatpost, 25.0mm. No Clamp. Length: 350mm $10.99

your LBS may be able to order one. i picked up a 350mm 25.0mm Kalloy seatpost at my LBS for only $20. Not much of bling factor but it does have 20mm of setback and it does the job.

I had a similar problem when I was replacing the seatpost on a late 80's Benotto. I ended up talking to the folks at Lickton bike in Chicago. I had done business with them before and had been pleased with their performance and attitude. THey sold me a nice aluminum alloy seat post for less than $20. Check them out: http://www.lickbike.com/

go to www.biketoolsetc.com. They have many, 14.99 with setback, black, silver, long, short. You won't find one much cheaper than that.
