28.6 seatpost with lots of layback for Brooks B17?

Postby jimneycricket » 26 Mar 2020, 11:09am

Is there anything out there like that grand cru setback seatpost but in 28.6 ?

I have a brooks B17 on my bike but cant get it into that sweet spot due to the short rails.

While I am here how long are the rails on the Brooks Cambrium ? is there more to work with ?

Just get the 27.2 post and a shim. Its hard enough getting the saddle back where you want it without looking for more problems!

27.2 will give you more comfort too.
