sorry, the clamp hole is 3/4" so you gonna need a 2 feet 3/4" pipe that runs horizontal to hold it. and also a 3/4" - 1" elbow on top. i just checked when i went back to LA this past weekend, also a 3/4" pipe dont fit a 1" pimpe may be 1/2" pipe would work but it might be woblly inside.

Put a blown tube over the wood. Keeps seatposts and frame clean and scratch free.

There's also this cool stuff that you can brush on (or Dip) that creates a nice, thick rubbery coating like the one on the ends of wrenches. You have to find it at places like Sears though. I dunno if Harbor Freight would have it. I think Home Depot may have it. I been wanting to get some to use as a chainstay protector for a long time, just havent yet.

the stuff holding the seat post is made out of wood that i customed. using 2 x 2 inch thick wood, take your seatpost and draw a circle on the middle then cut in half then start filing. use chisel or metal saw to cut big pieces instead of filing the whole thing.

Or you could drill the block with an 1 1/4" hole saw, then cut it in half. :thumbsup: :cheers:

For my stand I clamped 2 pieces of 2x4 together and drilled the big hole centered between them. Basically the same result. Also I used contact cement to glue cut-up patches of old mouse pad on them.
