    small diameter seat post - 23.8

    I'm looking for a seatpost with an abnormally small diameter (yes, it is a French frame).

    The stock seatpost measures 23.8 mm with vernier calipers. I'd like to find a 23.8, but I think that is out of the question.

    I think my best bet is to turn down a larger diameter post. All I've found at a moderate price is a Kalloy post in 25.0mm. I'd like to find a 24.0 mm post, one with a modern clamp.

    Anyone care to offer a link to one or know where they might be hiding? The Kalloys in 25.0mm are widely available and 1.2 mm is not that much, but I thought I'd give it a shot before purchasing. Also, I know yellow jersey has 24.0 mm, but I'm not willing to spend that much on this winter bike.

    I've even looked at BMX posts and using a shim, but most of them seem to be just a post...not a post with a clamp attached to the top.

    If I ask how to track stand, could I at least get a response?

    What about if I ask whether or not I should run a front break, a rear brake, no brakkes?

    Can I at least get an f' you?

    C'mon, now.

    i'd recommend shimming a bmx seat post -- you'll just need some so-called seat post "guts" to throw on top of the post so that you can put the saddle on. I am sure that I have some lying around that you can have if you're really desperate.

    Yellow jersey may be able to help

    While not listed on this site, they may have a small enough one or know where to get one.

    Shimming the bmx post as per Shant's comment seems a pretty common solution.
