    Stem/Seat Post Help

    I bought a 56cm bareknuckle frame bike and I know that I need a threadless stem, I'm not too sure what size I should be looking for. Also what size should I be looking for in a seat post? 30mm or 44? Would the nitto njsp72 be compatible with my bike?

    Thanks

    A googling shows a 1 1/8 headset and a 27.2 seatpost. And I have no idea what that Nitto number means.

    Edited to remove assholishness. Sorry kiddo.

    Those are length specs and they'll all work on your bike. Buy whatever feels the most comfortable. If you're friends with a shop, go in and try some stuff out.

    30mm or 44mm is the spacing of the rails on the saddle itself, some saddles (NJS?) will have a different spacing than everything else. Just ask your bike shop. If you have the saddle, but not the post, measure the saddle's rails.

    44mm is the common spacing, 30mm is for some kashimaxs and keirin ****..
