    $425 @ Performance

    I called Schwinn, basically the bike was dumbed down specs wise. The 27.0 might have been a running change, or the tolerance was off so a 27.0 was used .

    Now I need to return the sweet Velo-Orange post I bought in 27.2.

    I wish a had a Performance or a Schwinn dealer here who stocks these.

    I replaced the stock seatpost on my wife's '08 Madison with a Kalloy Uno 250mm x 27.2mm seatpost (I just went with the specs listed on Schwinn's site too), it was a little snug like the stock seatpost but it fit fine. I even compared the width to the stock seatpost before installing it and it looked like it matched.

    I'll be replacing the seatpost yet again with a 250mm x 27.2mm Thomson Elite seatpost that I won in an eBay auction, hope that fits too

    Edit: My wife's bike also came with Jalco rims and chrome Truvativ cranks/silver chainring.
