Hello, I want to put a carbon seat post on my bike. What is the best way to measure the existing seat post sothat I get the correct size replacement? I have a Montague Paratrooper and I am weeding out the lower end parts to make in into my commuter.
Another question I have is that with a carbon seat post I have heard that you can over tighten the seat clamp. How I do know when the clamp is tight enough without damaging the post itself?
Pull teh old seat post out and look at the area near the min insertion point. Ther will be numbers stamped into the post, something like 22.2. this numberis the diamater of the post. Purchase one with the same diamater. As for over tightining, not to much of a worry. Just do not do the tight and a half turn more route.
