great reliable post and cheap too, best if the flutes don't go into the frame as can let water in, but if only using it in the dry no worries...see if you can get an SR Royal they too are good.

New or used? 20 quid might bag you a Selcof or Miche pillar in the style of the Campag aero ones. Also, this random Google result might be of interest at a bargain 13 quid or so;

Mid 80's ? how about a Shimano aero, a bit more expensive at about 30 quid but more of the era..

Thanks for the link, there's also a Kalloy fluted post for a couple of quid more that looks ok. Not fussed whether new or used so may trawl through ebay.

A bit of time with a polishing mop and that Kalloy may end up looking like a half decent post, and beats spending north of £75 for a Campag or Zeus post.

Having slept on it I've gone for the cheaper aero post that will hopefully polish up nicely.
