    1991 GT Xizang PM sent! I've always run a shim and a 27.2 post in my frame instead of adding the weight of a pipe that size.
    Needed: 26.8mm XTR seatpost, blue GT/Grundig Jersey.

    often times the larger diamter posts are actually lighter than the 27.2 posts. Aluminum likes to be fat.

    There are a couple nice handmade frames that use a 29.4.

    "Independant Fabrication" being the one I found in my search...fairly odd size.

    My son's old Trek came with a 29.4 and when I had to replace it, I looked forever to find another. Believe it or not, it was the very low end model 800.

    My Ibis SS and my IF Deluxe are both 29.4. It is typical of 90's Fats too. The Yo! Buck, 93+ Monster, Ti Fat, etc are all 29.4

    I have 3 bikes in my stable using the 29.4 size: Yo, Verlicchi, Panasonic. Had a forth: Centurion Elevator. Still it is a not very common size.

    what an idea for a project...

    Quite a task but a seatpost database would be great...I know Sheldon Brown has a great one but I think an update pertaining more to VRC bikes might be great. There are so many questions posted about it here(including mine). Maybe weekly we could post a thread on a specific size (ie: starting with small sizes and working up), and have everyone share thier knowledge. Then move that info to a sticky...would that work? Would there be interest in sharing that info and would you guys contribute?

    I think the pattern here is Chromoly seat tubes in a 1 1/4 inch OD takes the 29.4mm post.

    Some 31.8 (1-1/4" chromoly) also take 29.2. Pattern also holds true for many Ti's.

    Early 90s Marin Pine Mountains were 29.4 also. The 1991 one with the matte black and neon orange for example.
