I loved…

[UPDATE: It looks like the item I bought is no longer available, to see similar items click here]

… the flexibily of adjusting my seat my previous Trek bike gave me and unfortunately my current bike didn’t offer it…

Fear not, it’s nothing a small visit to eBay couldn’t fix once I knew the magical number, 31.8!

31.8 mm is the size of my seat post, once I knew this I only had to search for a quick release seat post of that size…

I found this:

 

quick_release_seat

Installation was a cinch once I had removed the original one using an Allen key…

Please note that if you want to replace yours it might not be the same size…

To obtain the right size you can either

  • check the markings on the current part,
  • ask the manufacturer,
  • ask for help on cycling forums.

Keep on cycling…
