Seeking Seatpost diameter for 2010 JakeTheSnake

Can anyone tell me what the seatpost diameter for the 2010 JakeTheSnake should be?

I am building up a frameset but cannot find this on the website.

My thomson 27.2 seems a bit loose but might work.

Thanks.

It is supposed to be a 27.2 mm post. Does it not tighten up when you clamp it down?

Thanks mopartodd. It will tighten up just fine and I think it would hold without an problem. It is just way more lose than I am used to. It is not sloppy but the post will slide all the way down with no pushing at all, just gravity from the weigh of the seat.

Funny, all 3 Konas we have are that way and we've not had a post slip that was torqued properly. Glad to help.
