    New question here. Seat post size for RM Element?

    Hello all, I have a 2008 Rocky Mountain Element. The bike came new with an Easton EC70 carbon setback seat post which according to my (cheap) callipers is 26.8 diameter. Strange thing is that I cant find any Easton posts in that size. It's as though Easton supplied rocky Mountain for new bikes but don't offer replacements or I need new callipers. Any ideas???

    26.8mm was a standard size for earlier Rocky bikes and they often shipped with Easton posts, but by 2008 most of the models had switched to 27.2mm posts. Which model of Element do you have?

    It's in German but it has the specs for post 2003 models

    It's an Element 90. I'll remeasure and possibly get a better set of callipers.

    UPDATE! I cleaned the existing stem with a wet rag and was able (barely) to read the size stamp which I didn't see before. It reads 27.2... Thanks Rocky!

    p.s. My cheap plastic callipers are now in the garbage... lol
