All, a 3T and Deda post both came up narrow and slip in my J Laverack frame. Any recommendations for a light setback post?

I know this most likely has been tried but did you apply carbon paste?

You should Contact J Laverack; there’s no reason that it shouldn’t fit a standard seat post properly.

When I say came up narrow, the posts measured narrow with callipers. Have contacted Laverack too.

ritchey makes a carbon post with 12 or 15 mm SB. the Link-something-or-other

i don't think that another brand will solve your issue though

Either seat mast tube is slight to big, or "ovalized" (could be an heat related issue from welding).
