    Can anyone out there make a custom seatpost with the vintage 5/8" for the major length of the post and a small section of 7/8" on the top??? Here is an image and a cool micro adjust topper that fits over a 7/8" OD post...

    Inspired by your initial post...I added a micro adjust seatpost to an amazon order I needed to make. I'm going to fab something up as a proof of concept...I'll let you know what I come up with.

    The post above, what would you want it made of? What kind of length are we talking?

    HA_HA - I tweeked the post a bit, but what's the micro adjust you got on amazon? I'm working out the details of length and such still. Material, strong... but it's straight and not a laid back so I don't think it would need to be that involved??

    It was just a $4 add-on from Amazon... figured it to be cheap enough to experiment with. I got it today...it doesn't match the Amazon pic, which showed the clamp as bright, not black :). Oh, just noticed...also said 25.4mm, and this is 27.2mm...its a good thing I didn't actually need it.
