24mm Peugeot Seat Post

Hey guys - Been to busy to keep up with the forum lately and the weather has been in the 70s here in central Texas (ride ride ride...) - Anyway need to make a 24mm seat post for a P-6 Peugeot...

I am going to turn down a Kalloy 25mm seat post to 24mm and wanted to know if anyone else is interested - If I am going to turn down one may as well turn down a few others - But don't kill me cause I'm not in the business...

And I thought that the 26.4mm one on my PX-10 was small!

Yes me too - But the P-6 is a heavy internally braised frame and came with a steel seat post 24mm even...

I have had to do the same for a UO-8 @ 25.2 and a PR-10 @ 25.8 - All odd ball sizes but easy enough to just turn down a bit at the machine shop - I would rather do this than use spacers and sleeves...

Who really knows what an official seat post size is on a French bike anyway cause UO-8s are supposed to be 25.5 and PR-10s 26.4

Some Peugeots take a 22.0mm post. The clamp area is bigger than the part that inserts into the frame.

I've got a center post only in 24.0, uses the cradle that comes separate. The post is alloy, though.

Since you are turning some stuff to odd french sizes any chance you could turn some better stems from 22.2 to 22.0.

I know this post has been inactive for awhile now, but I've got an old Peugeot that I can't find an adequate seatpost for. I carefully measured (and re-measured) the frame, and it requires a 24.4mm seatpost, which I can't find anywhere. The previous owner decided to put in a 24.0mm seatpost and call it good, but I'm having trouble getting it to stick. Does anyone a) know where I can find a 24.4mm seatpost and/or b) want to trade for the 24.0mm that sounds like it's in a bit of demand? Let me know if you have any advice.

For what it is worth, many Peugeots came with a shim to take it down to 22, which is not much easier to find. You might just take it an LBS and ask for a seat post that will stay in the hole, and not bother with what the actual number is - your frame has been tweaked down to barely hold a 24 and the original size probably had the shim anyway.

I'm pulling up this old thread to say that 24 mm seatposts are available on German ebay. Search "Sattelstütze 24". This guy will apparently ship to the US. Alu Patent Sattelstütze 24 mm Durchmesser * Diamant * DDR MIFA * 350 mm Länge * | eBay

Lots of 80's Carbolite framed Peugeots owed this sized seatpost, so demand should be significant enough as the years go by if people would like to change out the originals.

I think you're likely to need a reverse shim if the goal is to have a 24mm seat post. Or are 23mm seat posts plentiful?!

The Yellow Jersey also has micro adjusting alloy posts in 24 mm diameter. Not cheap but no international shipping and exchange costs for American C&Vers.

I would have liked to get one from Yellow Jersey, but they are so damned expensive for a not very expensive bike . I even thought about asking if they could get them from Europe, since I assume someone over there is distributing them. But, buying on German ebay was roughly half Yellow Jersey's price, including shipping and pay pal conversion rates. I suspect, however, that the Yellow Jersey seatpost is better quality.
