1988 fuji tiara seatpost

Does anyone know the seatpost diameter for a 1988 fuji tiara? I looked online and found the catalog that lists a sugino spkcl, but no diam. I bought a 26.6 and it's way too small, tried a 27.2 and it's too big.

Thought I'd ask here before bringing the frame to the lbs to measure. Thanks.

Some, if not a lot of those mid to late 80's Japanese frames seemed to have been spec'd for 27.0 seatpost size. My '85 Centurian is 27.0

Cool looking frame btw.

thanks - that's what i was thinking. i researched online and 26.8 seems to be another popular size for this era, but seeing how loose the 26.6 fit i was thinking it might be 27.0

i was hoping someone who owns this same bike could confirm.

Sounds like it's time for you to buy some calipers!

My guess is 26.8, but Khatfull would be the one to ask. He had one a year or two ago.
