I have engaged a local machinist to manufacture aluminium seatposts for the
UK's Unicycle Source. These can be made in almost any size above 25mm and
come with a maximum length of 400mm long. They also have a brace under the
securing plate to stop them bending.
We have recently had a few orders for ones without the normal Miyata cut-out
on the front and rear for fitting to Carbon seat bases.
I have added them to the UK catalogue, but I keep on forgetting to add a
picture - I will see if I can get one up today or tomorrow.
The other option is a suspension seat post with an adaptation. I have a
catalogue item for these and a photo. The problem here is that they are
long, I could not use one (but I do only have short legs).
Because these are bespoke there is often a delay of a week or so before
The other thing worth mentioning is that seat posts for older Pashley
Unicycles to fit Viscount saddles are now available as a stock item. A good
upgrade if you are still on the old post.
I hope this helps
