- thomson post help can’t even get saddle level
so my eagerly awaited layback thomson post (layback) arrived toady, put on sadle fitted into soul frame and cannot even get the saddle to sit level (parallel to ground) Before it gets there the top piece of the clamp is tight onto the bottom.
Any suggestions as i don’t want to ride around with aose up saddle
thanksPosted 8 years ago
I think I had to go direct to Jim Walker for one of them and got the other from a local bike shop. If I remember correctly, the original posts came with clamp that was symetrical (would fit either way around without issue). The new post come with a directional head that can be run the other way around. It would therefor mimic the plane of the two bolt holes on the post. Would that suit your needs?
I’ve had a quick nose around the garage for one of them but couldn’t find them. They’re about somewhere in there though.Posted 8 years ago
If you have a symetrical one, it sounds like it’s one of the early posts. The sort that worked well with heavily angled rails like the Flite.
I’m now using the offset clamp as the rails on my Alias saddle are pretty much parallel to the top of the saddle.
If you need the offset clamp, you’ll need to try a local Thomson stockist or Jim Walker but it should sort your problem. I think they will range between minus 7 and plus 29 degrees I thinkPosted 8 years ago
