Late 1960s to Mid 1970s Saddles and Seatposts Found on Peugeot Bicycles

ADGA 28A and Ideale 39 Saddles

The ADGA 28A saddle was commonly found on the low-end AO, UO and UE bicycles.  The Ideale 39 saddle was less commonly found.  They were mounted with an unmarked steel clamp on a 22 mm x 19.5 cm chromed steel seatpost that fit into a seat tube shim.  For those of you wanting a longer seatpost, the United 22.0 mm x 30 cm unicycle seatpost sold by Unicycle.com works well.  When the shim is removed, the seat tube accepts a 25.6 mm seatpost.  The clamp was often used with the saddle railing guides in the 'down' position, so when the clamp slipped the seatpost bored into the underside of the saddle.
