    Spammy spam: Bent seat tubes for dropper posts

    Whit and I had a bunch of these made, and I'm putting them up for sale for anyone who's interested.

    Vital stats:

    -34.9 x 0.8 x 510mm (505mm measured along the hypotenuse)
    -Bent 20 degrees (200mm CLR) at 150mm (to center of bend) from the bottom.
    -Made by Fairing (overseas).
    -Require a welded/brazed in topper from Paragon: Miscellaneous - Frame Building Parts

    Or from Solidbikes:
    Solid Bikes — 30.9 mm Seat Collar

    You can also make your own from 1 3/8 x .065" 4130 if you have access to a lathe.

    This seat tube will work for even pretty extreme chainstay lengths and tire sizes. Pictured is a 29x3 chupacabra tire on a 420mm chainstay, 73 degree STA, 75mm BB drop frame. It has >20mm of clearance. If you wanted even more, you could miter the seat tube 5mm offset as well.

    Cost is $30 plus shipping per seat tube (contact me directly if you want a bunch), and you can order them here:

    If you do not have experience with joining collars or with mitering this type of tube, please feel free to post questions. Both are pretty simple to accomplish with a few tricks.
