Bontrager carbon seatpost

Postby dbairduk » Tue Feb 12, 2013 23:31 pm

Hi,
When I got my bike it was fitted with a Bontrager carbon seatpost, This was on backwards tough.
I turned it round but cant seem to adjust the tilt of the saddle on it.

Model says xxx.

I am also a little worries as when I googled it it came back with lots of cheap ones that look the same on ebay.

Has anyone got experience with these? I believe thee tilt part that sits inside the seatpost is a compression fitting of some kind?

Any one know how to loosen it to adjust it?

The centre barrel piece should slide out and rotate - try removing the side plates and screws and push it through
Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

Nice one, I got them out. I was scared of breaking it to start. I can put it back on the bike for the weekend :)
