I'm after a 31.8mm seatpost in carbon for a more comfortable ride and to drop some weight. I don't want to sepnd more than £50, any ideas?

Thanks
Pete

  • Well, i think the only answer is a shim as 31.8mm seatposts are hard to come by.

    What bike, sure it's not a 31.6?
  • if its 31.6, send me a pm. I have an easton carbon zero seatpost that i'm swapping for a joplin as soon as it turns up.
  • It's a Carrera Fury and its definitely 31.8 as both the halfords website and me comfirmed that its 31.8mm. I measured the circumference of the current seatpost and then divided that by pie = 31.8mm.

    Hi

    If its any help, I've just checked out my seatpost on my 09 Fury (white one) and it's definately 31.6mm.

    31.6 is a standard size. Even if yours was a 31.8, fitting a 31.6 isnt going to make a difference, it's 0.2mm smaller.
