    I bet he liked it and decided to buy it. If not, I have no idea how it would have gotten on his bike.

    If it is used on a track it makes some sense. That said, half the stuff people put on fixed gear bicycles doesn't make a whole lot of sense. I can't see why seatposts should be any exception.

    maybe he already had one, or works at a bike shop and gets some deals. the U.S.E. aero post is a little spendy, but they look dope on the right bike.

    Maybe he was a time trialist or a sprinter out for a ride on his racing bike.

    Let me go ahead and decide if it looked cool or not for you: Maybe.

    I bought a NOS Persons (a knockoff Kashimax, apparently from back in the day) and rode it for about 2 or 3 months. The number one problem with it is that it simply offers no vibration dampening. They're excellent for track cycling where you want the stiffest stuff possible (there are no bumps on the track), which is why you can buy NJS Kashimax saddles.

    Anyways, the rails should be the right size. Just avoid ones made with an integral clamp designed for pipe-style seatposts!

    What track are you riding on? Even the newer, fancier tracks I've ridden like Major Taylor have some rough spots.

    you should have just stopped riding so you could focus on color coordination

    Not rying to Hijack your thread, but...

    I saw a guy with TT base bars w/clip ons( like one uses on a TT or Triathlon bike) spinning his brains out(fixed) down a 6.3 mile descent.

    I've never seen that before, but I'm pretty sheltered when it comes to fixed-gear bikes. Is it common to run full TT bars on FG bikes?

    It sounds like he was talking about something more like this:




    I have one of those campy aero seatposts on my '86 road bike. If someone wants to give me another, I can pay about $10 for it, if that

    Chuck's has a few of these in stock, I believe. I think they look like sails.

    Campy Aero; however, pure class.

    Hey guys, lets turn this into a "post your aero seatpost" thread

    My turn:



    edit: Disregard the crappy plastic clips please, its an old picture. That rear rim recently got cracked by a pothole on Meeting St. (Charleston) too.
