Yea the clamp bit on the post exiting the seat tube joining the sawn off post.

I have seen them on a few bikes, usually lobos!

It's naff I know but it's the sorta thing I might whack on a spare post for those times you just take the bike for a sea side cruise n a bag of chips :0

wouldnt a layback post suffice?
not sure if that would stress the seat tube at any higher level? :?

Maybe but it's a tall frame and I'm in a decent leg length position with the seat nearly all the way down, to use a layback I might have to run the seat a little high..

I wouldn't ride it hard with that fitted, I share your concern that it would break something if I came pounding down on it.

jeez ... that looks well dangerous, if that clamp should snap, where do you think the open ended seat post will go?

make sure your medical insurace is up to date.
