What is the seat tube diameter? I have been looking for a 350-400mm straight tube seat post in a 28.6 for my Raleigh compact with no luck. I did find a Kalloy with the microadjust top. They make a little thingey (technical term ) called a seat post sandwich? That will allow a double rail saddle to be mounted on a modern post, but I don't know if it will work with a triple rail or not. Good luck.

Webshots is bailing out, if you find any of my posts with corrupt picture files and want to see them corrected please let me know. :(

If it's a newer downtube it should be 27.2, older it should be 31.4
