Velo Orange Seatpost Users ?
Does any here use the VO Grand Cru Seatpost? I need a longer one than I have,
and the VO appears okay, but I noticed the clamp looks rather small.
(Fore to aft, not width) Any seatpost I've owned had a clamp of 41mm
I would think a shorter clamp would put the stress on the
rails in a more concentrated area , but to what degree and if it matters .... I don't know. I remember those American Classic seatposts with the tiny clamps ..... and how they didn't last long.
It looks quite short though, from the photo the rails are shorter than the 27.2mm post.
Can someone measure one please?
