I contacted Kona Tech & they confirmed it was 27.0mm & I can't use 29er's.
I struggled getting the old post out since the previous owner thought it would be smart to cram a 27.2mm post into a frame which fits a 27.0mm post.
Ended up just mangling the seat post that was in there, was pretty much seized, had to drill relief holes, & grease it up with penetrating grease.
I ended up having to heat it up, & use a pipe wrench to muscle it out.
It's said 27.2mm on the bar, I chopped it down to use a
stubby for mock up & tuning, & it fit really snug.
It was a pink anodized seat post that I wasn't planning on keeping BTW.
I replaced the seat post,seat,stem,handlebar(Red Risers to black straight bar)grips, front brakes, & added fenders.
Just getting ready for own lovely Autumn weather we have around here.
Wet, wet, & a lil more wet.
Thanks for your input.
