    95 Explosif seatpost size

    I was under the impression that the mid nineties Kona steel frames had a 27.0mm seat post size. I have recently acquired a 95 Columbus MAX frame and find that a 27.2mm fits nicely. Perhaps it is wear and tear, but with my experience having Kona's in the past, I could not fit a 27.2mm in a 97 Columbus Explosif frame.

    Anyone seen this before?

    Funny you should say that. I was getting no love from this post so I took the frame to my LBS and voila... a 27.2mm fit perfectly.

    I did have a 97 a few years back and a 27.2mm would not fit. Frame inconsistency! I guess that's why Kona recommended the 27.0mm. It's a given - but can be sloppy in the seat tube on some models.
