Hi Guys. Already thinking of some changes to my Zaskar.
I was under the impression that carbon seatposts were no good as smallest dia was 27.2mm and retro frames won't take this size however. Out of interest last night I measured my existing one a Kore version and it was 27.2mm. Calipers are Moore and Wright so no doubt the accuracy.

Anyone care to comment. Frame is a 97 Zaskar.

My 96 Alpinestars is also 27.2.

Don't forget the carbon assembly paste.
