    What seat post is this?

    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    although, i don't think it should ever be used on a riveted leather saddle.

    Damn! 26.6... that's the worst size ever. I should know since I spent about a month looking for one that wasn't junk. People tell you to use 26.4, but then you do... and 26.4 starts to slide down in the frame.

    If you're interested, I have a sweet NOS 26.6 seatpost that weighs in at 230 grams (I bought two seatposts, now having a money crunch). pics attached. PM me for price if yr interested.

    From the little i can see of it in the picture it looks really nice. Maybe i need to see it in context with the rest of the bike. As for my seatpost, I might be able to squeeze a 26.8 in without too much trouble. Or, I have access to a lathe, i could always shave off .2mm

    On the upside, the bike is a bit of a beater, so even a crappy seatpost would work. My problem now is that the P.O. cut the original down to about 6".

    Hi sivat,

    The setback can be seen in the third picture... the left side of the pic is the front of the post, right side is rear of the post.

    The cylindrical piece of aluminum that goes through the middle of the post can be moved forward or backwards inside the post. As you see it, it is all the way back with about 9mm or 10mm of setback.

    The nice thing about it is that the angle is really easy to adjust - a pretty unique style with those two bolts. Hard to explain but easy to use.

    But if you have a really really narrow seat with low rails, and you need to move it all the way back, you might be better off with a campagnolo or american classic. I have a selle italia flite titanium and the american classic fit better. I have the saddle all the way back.

    you want a setback seatpost in 26.6mm for a beater?
    that's more common than you think.

    unless you've got a thing against Kalloy...

    Problem with kalloy seatposts is that the saddle angle adjustment mechanism is notched. The notches can be easily seen in the second link above.

    So in my case, at least, the saddle angle is impossible to get right with a kalloy. Either too upwards pointing or too downwards angled. I guess you get what you pay for.
