Need seatpost size help

I have acquired what I believe to be a 2004 Trek 6000 ATB, light grey color, with red Manitou shocks. The seat post and post clamp are missing. I have not been able to find any web site on the internet where I could find the specs for this bike so I can purchase the correct seat post. Any ideas, please ? There must be some web page with a picture of the bike and all specs. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Bikepedia ( http://www.bikepedia.com/Default.aspx ) does not show this bike as you list it. I would never rely on web information for something like this. A good bike shop can size it for you.

My trek 3900 is a 31.6, along with my buds 4300.
I don't think the seat tubes change between the hardtail models. But I could be wrong.

In the meantime, I have discovered that it must be a model year 2000 Trek 6000. Yes, I can measure things. However, since seat post sizes come in .2 mm size increments, it is not that easy to make sure that I am getting the exact size that I need. I want to ensure that I purchase the correct seat post size first thing, rather than try it, scratch it up , and attempt to return it. Thanks to everyone for their help.

What is the outside diameter of the seat tube? It's an AL frame, right?

I am looking for a basic replacement seat post like what came on the bike. A basic Taiwan type alloy post with the hardware and a 6 mm bolt that adjust horiz. and vert. It is an aluminum frame. I am getting the impression that it must be a 31.6mm post.

I'd guess it to be a 27.2 post, then...
