Chuck,

I guess you're right. I forgot what they looked like and I don't ride the bikes that have them very much.

Sometimes I'm like Eddy Merckx, alway readjusting my seat between rides! ;-)

Here's a velobase.com link to pictures of one of my Milremo posts:

Also, I bought a Schwinn seatpost tool from a Schwinn dealer in 1975. It has a 12 point wrench end instead of the 6 point Campy seatpost wrench. It's saved a lot of knuckles over the years.
