technical question - teschner track pro.
apparently i need a seatpost with about 30mm of setback for my teschner track pro. the custom one that comes with the bike has no setback. any ideas, anyone?
larger frame? longer stem? different saddle?
i think i recall teschner carrying different posts on their site. although by teschner's measurements, the post is already set back from a standard tubeset. the spider is centered on the post, but the dimensional center of the post is at the widest part, which is forward about 20mm from center.
i like my teschner. my chief complaint about the post is that i needed to buy longer bolts to get it to fit my fizik saddle, since the rails are oversized a little bit.
Quite possible the aero posts from the Aerowave or the Tempest might help; they have a bit of setback.
Otherwise go on the Teschner site and ask them if they offer a true setback post.
yeah mate, they did make a setback post. Not sure if it's 25mm or 30mm though?
I know 2 people with the setback post, of the top of my head.
Some of the more modern saddles come with longer rails too, I guess it depends if you use an older steel rail saddle or already have a modern one.
thanks everyone for your replies. i just bought one from teschner with 25mm setback. a different seat - with longer rails - should take care of the rest.
