    long seat posts for Raleigh DL-1??

    I just bought two 1970s Raleigh DL-1s.

    The seat post on the men's bike seems a bit too short. An ideal length may be 9-10". I've searched a bit, but haven't found a clear answer. Has any one seen posts of this size?

    The rider is under 200 pounds, so I don't believe we'll need anything heavy duty.

    I believe that any 25.4mm (1 inch) diameter seat post should work. They are available in multiple lengths so it should be easy to find one suitable to your needs. I just tried a Kalloy alloy 25.4 seatpost on my project DL-1 and it fits fine.
