Wim, where in that document does it say they make a 27.0 set back? I also looked at the website of Thomson and they do not list one. The have zero set back but not what he wants.

I did search and couldn't find one in Ritchey either. This may be a tough one to find.Sorry this is no help to the OP.

Careful reading, not.

Come on, geez, just look closely at the numbers and there it is...there it is.....uh....hmmm....well....

Screwed up on this big time—my mind's eye substituted 27.2 for 27.0. Sorry, everyone. Old, addled and apparently needing "monitor glasses."

How much you want to spend?

I would look on EBay. If you're going low cost, take a look at the American Classic 27.0. I've used the AC for years and find them reliable and easy to adjust. If properly lubricated, they don't creak either.

Pricier options would be Campag, Shimano, etc.

Top choice would be a Shimano 7400A which you see on a lot of David Hickey's bikes. The Shimano 7400A & B as well as the 600 are really well made with a single bolt for the seat clamp but also incorporating a small set screw which adjusts the saddle tilt. Plus, they're really nicely finished. The 7400A NOS is pretty expensive but the 600 NOS can be found and at reasonable prices. Not sure about the seatposts but the matching stems from that era were made by Nitto.

Can anyone recommend me a 27.0 seatpost with setback?

(Looks like maybe Thompson used to make one, but no longer?)

Thanks.

Shimano Dura Ace - nice post but hard to find
Ritchey Comp (they are no longer making them but you can order one from Ritchey NOW)
American Classic - old
Selcoff
few different ones on the Bay (there is a Ritchey Pro on there right now- I like mine)

I am in the same boat. All my bikes are 27.0.
Not many decent posts in that size. Keep your eyes open.
you could always to 26.8 with a shim.
