Interested in trying one of these on a new build.

Anyone got an older one in good nick? It's going on a 2002 build so would prefer one from around then. I believe they came out in early 2000

I've no experience of these so let me know if an old one from back then is a bad idea!

Ideally 27.2mm but as long as it can be shimmed to 29.6mm it would be ok.

Thanks

There’s no way they can be safe surely?

Cheers

26mm or 25mm? The linked post says 25mm. 25mm I can shim to my frame. Would just need to check length as that's shorter than my current posts but not necessarily too short.

How much you looking for?
