    KHS Alite team

    hello all, I am in the process of building a 2006 khs alite team. I am down to the last part of the build and need to know what diameter seatpost it takes. If I was at the shop I could figure it out myself but I am not so any help would be great.

    Awesome bike! I had on 05, and it was a 27.2. The most common. You might want to swipe a friends 27.2 and see if it fits properly. I am pretty sure that did not change. You'll have to hang on to that thing when it is done!

    I plan on keeping this one for a while. Probably for a very long time. I thought it may be a 27.2. I may just email KHS and see if it is definately a 27.2. Its been real easy to build this bike very light. Im on track for 21.5lbs right now.

    Just wanted to say that I recieved an email from Gene at KHS verifying that the seatpost is indeed a 27.2mm diameter. Hope this helps some one else in the future.
