Seatpost questions...(2 posts)

Seatpost questions...DT
Nov 6, 2001 3:15 PM
Hello, I have a 2000 Klein Quantum Race that I'm trying to find a seatpost for. Is this a 31.2 or a 31.6 size seat-tube? Also, can I put an aluminum shim on a 27.2 carbon post (or aluminum post for that matter in this size frame)? And lastly, what is the minimum length post you need to have below the top of your seat-tube? (I'm trying to get a lighter post...) Thanks!!

the Klein dia. should be 31.6.

you can use a shim to go from 31.6 to 27.2(this actually will prbably save you some weight)

no problem with carbon. don't grease the post but do grease the outside of the shim where it mates to the frame.

Min. insertion should be that the post passes below the intersection of the top tube and seat tube.
