Campagnolo Euclid or possibly Record OR seatpost. Is the rear knob for an angle adjust?

Bob - 10/01/12 - 7:46am

A good way to get sterile!

NutCrusher 2000??

Can’t remember the brand, but it is a seatpost/ pump. The seat clamp has a QR to remove the saddle when using as a pump.

Sure looks CAMPY-ish.

Quick release seat post for a fitting bike?

John - 10/01/12 - 10:45am

Its called a SEAT POST. Please post pictures that are actual ‘mysteries.’ This is truly pathetic.

Gordo - 10/01/12 - 11:16am

Yep, A Campy Euclid or Centarur (it was an offroad group first) seat post. Post some bullet shifters sometime and lets see how many folks call them early grip shifts. :)

Campy’s first mtn bike seatpost. I believe that Chris Chance from Fat City Cycles advised them that all mtn bikes had quick release seatposts. Well, Campy thought that the QR was on the seatpost, not the frame as it should have been.. Guess it was lost in translation….

WannaBeSTi - 10/01/12 - 12:11pm

I retract my guess. It’s a Campy Hookah.

Ripnshread - 10/01/12 - 1:11pm

Roflol…I got a buddy who worked at Campy for a bit…I totoally believe Phil H….they still like that. But now they are a little more guarded. …lol

its a travesty!

Tuck - 10/02/12 - 8:07am

It’s a left 1.5″ all mountain bottom bracket.

Answer from Jeff at First Flight Bicycles: “Campy Seat Post from their early mountain bike groups, probably Euclid/Centaur. Allows you to change the seat position with a quick release. Very overbuilt!”

Campy Euclid Seatpost – Campy’s first ill-fated attempt at addressing the mountain bike market. Sadly, the seatpost and pedals were the least laughable parts of the effort.
