Nice bump... from October 2008...
sorry to resurrect this again, but is the decathalon post a micro-adjustable one? There's no picture on the website!
Its pretty standard I think, with the more modern kind of fixture at the top (not one of those awful olde style ones)
It looks pretty much like this one, but silvery coloured:
ok nice one, i was hoping on getting a nice campy piece but looks like this is as good as i can get! Thanks mate
This is the Decathalon post fitted to my Pug renovation.
I had to use a cut up coke can to shim it.
The coke can shim sits slightly down from where you insert the post so you don't see it.
It works a treat.

Thanks braker, searching for ages for a seat post ot fit my pug peugeot.
Or 22.2mm BMX seatpost + 0.9mm brass shim as has been done before.
I have a Peugeot with a 24mm seatpost with a Brooks B17 stuck on top. The clamp bolt has completely rounded so I'm stuck with the B17. I want to swap it for my Brooks Team Professional and sell the B17. Might have to angle-grinder the seatpost apart, there's no chance of getting a drill in there...
I know this is a flogged thread but I just thought I'd pass on a handy little find I had the other day. I was in Decathlon and spotted a BTwin aluminium seat post they stock. Its 23.4mm and comes with two shims to upsize it to 25 and 27.2mm. I bought it knowing it may be too thin (0.6mm) to try on my Pug as I was in need of a post. However, being a steel frame I managed to tighten it up nicely without too much strain on the frame. Oh, and did I mention its £12.99.
You made a thread about your satisfaction regarding finding a wrong sized seatpost you force fitted to your frame?
idiots like you are the reason when ever I buy an old steel frame the seat tube is always deformed.
actually there is absolutely no damage to the seat tube and there is still at least 2mm of room in the clamp. I might just go get an even smaller one for the fun of it.... thanks for the complement!!!!!
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
