Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Gardin track frame - anyone have an extra aero seatpost that'll fit

i just got a gardin track frame, it's got an aero seat tube. it's about a 26.6 at the top, but tapers down and gets oval. anyone know of a seatpost that would fit?

I have a similar problem with my bike. All you can really do is find a post that fits (the diameter), and cut it off if you can't find a short enough length. I'm assuming the taper doesn't start until below the top tube...

I'm pretty sure yellow jersey can make one for you. IIRC, there's a page about it on their site.

I could, however, be thinking of someone else...
