    Well if you're thinking about the aero portion sitting flush with the aero seattube, it's not going to happen.....

    Nope... that's why there's the 27.2mm; that's the seatpost diameter... which varies among frames, although 27.2mm is the most common.
    Your road bike takes a larger seatpost size.

    ah diameter that's the word i was looking for . so different bikes have different diameters ? and i think you mean my track bike takes a larger seatpost size ? because the roadie was too small and it just fell all the way down .

    Yes and yes. I thought you were talking about a newer road bike as these days road bikes usually take larger posts because bigger is better apparently; points toward deda releasing a 35mm clamp bar and stem.

    Yup, larger diameter for seatposts for stiffness; handlebars for ergonomics and stiffness.

    My pleasure.
