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)

Pista Seatpost Measurements

I recently bent my seatpost on my Bianchi. Like a complete idiot I forgot to remove the seat/seatpost from my bike when going through a particularly low parking garage with the bike on the roof. The frame and fork are fine but the saddle and seatpost are trashed. I found a deal on a used 27.2 X 410 MM Thompson. Will it fit???

Thanks in advance

Hard to believe the seat tube top wasn't affected by a blow strong enough to damage your seatpost.

I was very surprised to see the only damage was to the seatpost and saddle. I was really worried about the headset and fork but everything seems to be fine. I was only going about 3-4mph when it happened, the roof rack took most of the force and was bent to hell. I figured it was a 27.2dia but I thought it couldn't hurt to ask. Thanks guys
