    New question here. Ritchey steel help with seat post size

    I have an early 1990's custom Ritchey road bike I purchased from a friend. the frame came with a 26.8 seat post. however, the post slips. A friend of mine how builds steel frame thought that it was odd that a Ritchey road frame would take a 26.8 seat post, and perhaps the seat tube lug had been modified (crimped) to fit a 26.8 post. the frame is filet brazed Ritchey Logic tubes made by Tange (Prestige). I'm trying to find out if it was common for Ritchey to use 26.8 tubes for road frames. I emailed Ritchey and they said they do not retain info on the frame they built and could tell me what size the seat tube is.

    Anyone out there with a Ritchey road frame - Did Ritchey regularly use 26.8 seat tube on road bikes?

    Thanks

    Ritchey P-Series MTB's from that time frame use 27.0's.

    Also try www.oldmountainbikes.com. Excellent resource for all things Ritchey.

    thanks. to clarify - do you mean a 27mm, not a 27.2mm post?
