Hi elpedro666

Thanks for your reply. Yep, once upon a time ...

I was contemplating buying a black thomson seatpost and having it re-anodised silver ... has anyone had any experience at this?

(but a large part of me thinks that such a move is a step too far ... that I should stick with the slightly shabby and bent post ... after all what would bikesnob say!)

Cheers. Frank


If it's anodized black you could just strip the black and hey-presto - a silver post - there are literally HUNDEREDs of posts online and one in particular for a syncros post - i hear oven cleaner is a prefered solution because it is a more dilute caustic - too strong gives 'pitting' apparently.

I plan on doing this as a silver syncros post is less common than black - you can get the decals on ebay for £6 or so.

Hi Donnie

Thanks for your reply and interest.

I've talked to Thomson ... and a local anodising establishment ... and they both say that the bare aluminium is anodised 'silver' (ie a silver dye) and not just left as raw aluminium which would dull into a grey finish (not structurally any different, but not shiny silver!)

Either way, I have managed to find a silver Thomson 27.0 (thanks titanfreak) so will not have to explore this avenue.

Cheers. Frank

Hi

The mech needed is a top pull 34.9 and the bb is 1.37 x 73

The forks originally would have either been mags or standard giant rigid forks but the bombers are the forks I bought with the bike and perform quite well
