Pashley seat post

My Pashley seat is falling apart and I want to replace it with a Viscount,
available from DM unicycles.  However this requires a different seat post to
the original and he asked me if the Pashley is 25mm or 1 inch diameter.  I do
not have a micrometer and it is difficult to judge with a tape measure!  Does
anybody know the answer?  My Muni is a current model, only about 4 months old.

Thanks

        I couldn't tell you which one, but there are 25.4 milli-meters in an
inch.  Hope this helps.  Also .4 milli-meters shouldn't make a whole lot
of difference between the two posts.  Am I wrong in saying this??

It costs a bit of money, but I had a machinist make me a set of standard
rails that replace the old welded seatpost attachment on my Miyata seat.
This way you can fit any sized bicycle seatpost you want, including
seatpost shocks if your MUni seatpost tube is big enough, and you can also
adjust the angle of the seat to whatever is most comfortable.

I had a local bike shop weld a used "regular" bike seatpost to my Miyata seat.
I don't have a micrometer, so I can't tell you the exact diameter of the
seatpost--but the bikeshop matched the Pashley seatpost. It is extra long so
that it has more surface area to prevent any movement, and works with my long
legs. I recommend it as a low-tech solution.

Be warned the 0.4 will make a massive difference and will not clamp properly at that
difference.

There are 3 sizes fitted to pashley unicycles, none as far as I know are 25 or
25.4.  The Muni's have a 25.8.  If you pull it all the way out I believe it is
stamped on the bottom section.

Have you had a look at your existing seat post? I'm fairly certain that
my old one had it stamped on there somewhere - probably by the limit mark.

If it's of any help, the way that I solved my Pashley Muni seat problem
was to cut the seat mounting bracket off of the post and then weld a
Viscoun/Schwinn seat bracket (previously cut from an old Schwinn post)
onto the Pashley seat post. This is the only real true way to solve the
problem. Do not try to shim, or clamp a smaller OD post onto the
unicycle as it will distort, bend, break, or (if nothing else) rotate
too easily when turning.  This was a very clean modification (looked
good), was easy to do, and is very strong. Anybody with a wire feed
welder can do the job if you don't have access to one.

Any opinions on what is more comfortable/better designed, comparing
(non-customized) Viscount and Miyata seats?

Thank you professor, the best solutions are usually the simplest.. :-)   I
pulled it all the way out and it did indeed have 25.0 stamped on it.  I am now
back in action with a new seatpost and lovely YELLOW saddle!

BTW do not attempt to repair a Pashley saddle with an arc welder - the foam
inside melted away to nothing leaving a large cavity!
