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)

Gah! Okay, take it to a bike shop and get them to size your seat tube w/ the tool designed for that job. It's a cylinder that incrementally increases in diameter by tenths of a milimeter. You really don't want to trial and error a seat post.
