General Information
See 1984 Simplex Catalog, p 17.  (Scan copy available here on Velo-Base).  Catalog listed length is 230 mm, perhaps the effective length rather than overall.  Listed weight is 291 g, for 26.0 mm size.  A bit heavier than other Simplex posts, but not too bad considering the extra length and stouter-looking clamp.
