Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

japanese seatpost size

alright, i'm sure that this info's on sheldon's site somewhere, and probably even on this forum. that being said, i'm equally sure that some of you guys know it off the top of your heads, so help a brotha out. i just bought a keirin frame, and the seatpost that was in my old frame (which was a non-njs japanese track frame) is too small. so could someone tell me exactly what size i need? thanks.

my bridgestone keirin frame is 27.0 The two currently manufactured NJS posts that I know of, shimano & sugino are available in 26.8 - 27.0 - 27.2 I have an extra sugino 27.2 post that I'd be willing to part with. brand new, never used. and no, it won't be cheap.
