Oh really? That bike was the one I pinched the 26” wheels off...
New seatpost arrived but doesn’t fit (26.8mm) feels very close though. It has had a smaller tube with spacer fitted so possibly it’s just a little crimped or gritty?
What's up with those Aerospoke like wheels you got the bike with? I've no experience with those. Are those just for the looks (and not having to true wheels) or people actually used them on their off-road rides?
I've got a timberline from the same year. Seatpost is stuck, so I'm trying to remove it in a manner in which I can re use it.
I did put a vernier on it last summer but can't remember what it was. I googled the measurement though and it didn't come up with any seatposts that size... Next time I top up the penetrating oil, I'll measure again. It'll be tomorrow if I remember.
