I have a mid-eighties ladies' Miyata 310 with the seat post stamped 26.7, about 220mm long. The sticker on the seat tube says "MIYATA Cr-Mo CHROME MOLYBDENUM DOUBLE BUTTED TUBES" but I don't have any gauges handy to see if the seat tube is butted at the top. The "upper downtube" on these frames joins the seat tube just below the mid-point. I expect ladies' frames are the exception to the rule.
