    Need seatpost size for Schwinn Woodlands / RESOLVED

    I rescued an early 90s 7-speed Schwinn Woodlands off my neighborís bulk pick up pile on the side of the road this evening. Havenít had
    a chance to evaluate it beyond noting the trashed rear tire and missing seat and post. Does anyone know what size post fits? My wifeís 26.4 is close but undersized. Iím guessing a 26.8 or 27.0.

    If the bike just needs what I see immediately, my plan is to replace the seat, post, and tires, tune it up and give it to a coworker who has no car and got hit on his bike. Heís OK but his Wally World FS bike was DRT. It may need cables too. I donít mind cleaning and repacking bearings, but I donít want to get into having to replace BB, HS, or hubs.

    Thanks

    wrong forum. there's a vintage forum for stuff like this.

    your best bet is to measure it. any good bike shop will have a seatpost gauge like this:



    you need to get the correct size within 0.1mm or correct or it will not work.

    Figured this fit in general found junk bike, not VRC. Trying to avoid a trip to the LBS.

    Different sized seatposts are so close to each other that a visit to the lbs is about the only way to get it right, nothing close to standard and even the same bike models were likely to change from year to year.

    not to mention, I've seen enough "junk, found bikes" whose seat tubes/clamps were sufficiently mangled that there was no way you were getting a seatpost with the OE-spec diameter to fit.
