After a suitable post for this merckx

Image

Has a mavic gruppo. The chances of getting a matched mavic post are low plus they only came in black I believe. Campag aero looks right but sadly too short due to iffy upper seattube. Was running a DA post which works well and is nicely made but is quite wrong for the build. Can anyone suggest a suitable early 90s seatpost a little longer than a regular aero post which would suit this build??

Zoom - very light and easy to fit and adjust.

And a reasonable length.

I use one on my Favori.

Thanks for the tips. Currently have a kalloy/ritchey knock off in their. With Mavic stikcers on it looks alright.

Would however be nice to have something from the right era. Did anyone do a longer aero post??

+1 to that. I'm a big fan of Selcof posts.

Perhaps a C.L.B. aero -- if you can find one and 260mm is long enough. Nice bike. :)

That Kalloy Uno (more like the Shimano post than Ritchey) in the pics would be the same in that era. The year should actually be stamped on it.
Near min line, should say Kalloy and have two number like 06 93 ...

Sorry, wasn't very clear. The post fitted in the picture is a dura ace 7410. It is now on another bike and the post currently on the merckx is some cheapo 27.2 kalloy-esque (but not kally) post I had knocking around.
