@Bas .. If you don't trust you're modification why not add a seat coller or hose clamp to the post itself on top of the frame clamp to stop it moving down. This is a common modification by Pro team mechanics for the pave classics ..

Rogan, keep the chainset.

Black is boring and mutes the frame too much.

You mean the post 'wobbles' or you can twist it? The seatpost shouldn't ever wobble (have any play in it) at all, even with an open/busted seatcollar. If it does, it's too small for the frame.

Might be a good idea.

It twists, with quite some effort.

You most assuredly did. The fact that 'too tight for it to withstand' is less than 'tight enough to work properly' is a design flaw. Next time use grip paste and a clamp on the post above the seat clamp, as that sorts out the post slipping down problem which usually leads people down the path of excessive seat clamp tightening. Or just lay off the pies, fatty.

Unnecessary expense, 853 doesn't need low-melt brazing rods, it's quite happy with the much higher temperature involved in welding.

^^ interesting idea, good luck making a neat hole in shim stock though; it's bastard hard. You might be able to punch it, or wave a torch over it to anneal the ends then drill it. At that point, though, you might as well turn up a little collar to fill up the clearance hole where the bolt head sat.

Looks very nice. Are you going to file off the BB cable guides?

What colour are you thinking?

Thanks very much. The cable guides are potentially coming off, although I'm still toying with the idea of maybe sticking a nexus hub with a coaster on the back.

Again, choosing a colour is also a daily changing saga! All I know is that the forks and rear drop outs will be chromed.

The raw frame should be done in the next week or so. I'll post up updates as and when.

Yep! Just got back home from the Crit and got 2nd place. Won some Dodici Rims, that will probably appear up for sale some day soon. If I sell them here, I'll donate to the forum since it has made winning them possible.

Thanks for the help guys. All of you!*

Not that light in itself... frame is pretty light for the size but the components were not selected for weight, just what I had lying around!

By 'light' tourer, I meant that it'd carry a bit of luggage for summer trips, but also be useful for faster rides round Yorkshire hills.

Been looking for a campagnolo c-record era seatpost and found this
Very tempted by the panto and it seems quite well made, however I wonder if the massive (by the look of it) setback won't look wonky given the fact I haven't got a lot of seatpost showing (12 cm , to be precise).

Should I go for it or hold out for the real deal?

Reach shouldn't be a problem, I've been cursed with shortish legs/long upper body and feel like the saddle could be set a few cm further back than the thomson allows.

The Kalloy SP248 which copies the C-Record clamping mechanism is actually nicer than that Vitus thing, and it's available in 25.0

I have one on my everyday bike. I agree they're fine.

I have the Kalloy campag/aero type in a box somewhere. It works ok and looks ok but is pretty heavy.

Thanks for the heads-up, I've been actually eyeing the kalloy once I started collecting bits but found the thomson locally and couldn't pass up. Either way, I've been toying with the idea of gradually changing bits and sods to c-record, so I suppose neither the kalloy, nor the vitus will do in the long run..sigh*breaks piggy-bank*

Cut it in half! easiest solution (I did that with the uber-long Nitto seatpost on a bicycle that doesn't have a lots showing).

Just measure the minimum insertion, put it in the frame at the right height, add a band of tape just above the clamp, then remove and cut exactly the minimum insertion below the line of tape.

Whichever is greater out of 50mm/2" and ¼ of the total seat post length, and disregard any seat tube extension above the top tube.
