    Aero Seatpost Installation

    Hey, I just bought a Leader 737R and the seat tube cap only tightens a 27.2 seatpost. I am searching up and down for how to install an aero seatpost so that the seat tube and the seat post looks like one piece, but the cap doesn't seem to tighten the thicker part of an aero seatpost. I just want to know 1) what size seatpost, 2) How do you put one on, and 3) do I need to cut the seatpost or buy a new collar or anything?

    Are you trying to stick an aero-shape into a round hole? That won't work. If the seat tube will accept a 27.2 seat post, that's what you need to use.

    Yes but this bike and the Argon 18 Mercury (and I'm sure others) take a standard round seatpost even though the tube is shaped aerodynamically. Take a look at the photos on leaderbikestore.com and you can see they always build the bike with a round post.
