Broken seatpost (for head)

Hi,

I'm looking for a broken seatpost or debonded seatpost head for a project. Ideally 27.2 but bigger or smaller might be ok too.

Please let me know if you have one or see one.

Thanks.

Re: Colnago Master Olympic Frame for sale

I'd probably post the same ebay information again in a similar situation. I have removed my opinion on the price which was based on the ebay sale, given your explanation. Sorry that I assumed you were trying to flip the frame at a large profit and glad to hear that you are not. Have you tried sellin...

I think we were possibly escalating towards it. Certainly there was indignance and smartassery.

Re: Fred Whitton

Is that a road closure notice? It looks like a facebook post to me. [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=01NHcTM5IA4[/youtube] This is a road closure notice. https://www.newsandstar.co.uk/announcements/public_notices/notice/98859.THE_COUNTY_OF_CUMBRIA__U4059__U5032_AND_U5527_HARDKNOTT_PASS_AND_W...

Re: Fred Whitton

There was no such ban according to the details of the road closure notice which stated that a way will be maintained for pedestrians and cyclists at all times. There was if you read post #1 of this thread. The organisers posted on Social Media that cyclists without an event number would not be allo...

Re: Colnago Master Olympic Frame for sale

I find ebay sold listings are a very helpful guide when I'm unsure of the value of an item, whether I am a buyer, seller or just an interested observer.

Re: Colnago Master Olympic Frame for sale

Is this the same frame, on eBay a month ago? The pictures appear identical to those used here. If so, how do you know how much it has been used over the last twenty years?

Re: Crit / flat road bike?

Will you also have a training bike or is it likely you'll be using this bike for both training and events? The level of stiffness that the aluminium bike has might be of benefit in a short race might be less than ideal when training.

Re: Supercommuter?

I've been eyeing up some stainless track nuts, either these ones from zenith https://thecycleclinic.co.uk/products/zenith-track-nuts-for-campognolo-hubs-front-or-rear Or some of the Chinese ones listed on eBay and Amazon although the reviews suggest the threads may be too far out to engage the axle....

Re: ... Of some good shorts?

Turns out the nose of my spa wharfe saddle had flared out in front of the rivets and the shorts are catching on the rougher edge of the leather.

That would be fine at the top of perhaps Whinlatter where there is parking and a road that can take traffic.

But the Hardknott?? Even a dozen vehicles could cause carnage. The ban is probably the only safe and practical way to allow the event to take place at all.


What ban?

Re: Fred Whitton

I objected to the organisers announcing that the road was closed to other cyclists when it wasn't. I have some sympathy with them given the difficulties of unregistered riders following the same route on the same day. Obviously it's difficult to distinguish cyclists who unfortunately arrive to cycle...

I wonder where one could buy a nice two bolt seatpost head to bond into a suitable tube?
