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)

question: MEASURING SEATPOST lengths?!

How do you properly measure seat post lengths?

From the bottom to the middle of the clamp part?

From the bottom to the top of the clamp part?

Just the post?

Tell me true!

the nitto NJS posts are measured from the bottom to the part where the rails of the saddle sit. I'm guessing this may be one of those things that varies from one mfg to another

I've got an SR post that was advertised as 250mm, and it measures barely 250mm from end to end counting the bolt on top.

Hmmm, so it does differ by mfg.

What about Campy or Dura-Ace?

Anyone know?
