Anyone got any clue as to a bizarre seat post problem I've got with the MF Alu Pro
Anecdotally they suit a 27.2mm. Although I've only been able to find people with later '90 on wishbone framesets.
I have a 26.8 which is a smidge loose (measures 26.75ish with my vernier) and there's a discernible if slight side to side movement when un-clamped.
I have a 27.0 which is tighter than a constipated gnat. And can only be inserted with considerable force and a whole lotta lube
I've eased the top of the seat tube in case there's any tightening (even 'wedged' the 27.0 is still too tight)
As there's no 26.9mm alternative, what to do?
Any thoughts welcome....
