1994 Aero Seatpost 27.0

Here is a 1994 Kalin alloy seatpost, with the classic aero styling from the 80s and 90s that we no longer see. It replicates the classic stylings of the C-Record posts of the same era, also copied by Shimano for the Dura Ace and 600 seatposts of the same vintage.

This seatpost still retains its original shine. I have not polished it at all. Even the seat clamps are factory polished. Not even Campagnolo did that!

A buff with some Autosol will make this post absolutely gleam.

There are some small markings on the insertion part of the post, as is to be expected on a post this old, but it is remarkaby clean and tidy overall.

Size is 27.0 mm. Can be made compatible with any 27.2mm frame with a shim made from an aluminium can. This will in fact protect the post from insertion scratches or further wear and tear.

SOLD - 8 Speed Shimano 600 Wheelset

Bulletproof set of wheels from the early nineties.

8-speed Shimano cassette, 32 radially laced DT bladed spokes up front. 32 round straight guaged DT spokes at the back, triple crossed for strength. Aero DT rims. What's not to like?

Unlike those flimsy modern carbon wheels, these brutes won't crumble in potholes. Nor will they warp, even if you drop them. Still oh so shiny too. Shimano freehub body is also compatible with any number of alternative speed cassettes if you want to run say, 9-speed instead.


It begins

As if there aren't enough pages in cyberspace dedicated to beautiful Italian works of cycling art, and the best looking components in the world, it's time to add just one more...

Let's start in style, with some gorgeous glitter.

C-Record aero setpost with Colnago pantographing, and Italian colours. Still in its original box some 20 years on.

By the mid eighties, the pantographing craze was almost over, so it is rare to find pantographed C-Record items. It is even rarer to find anything new. Makes me reluctant to mount this seatpost. What do ya reckon? Keep it new, or build it up?
