Kona Seat Post size

I need to get a shim for a seat post. It's a Kona Safariland patrol bike. The specs only list it as a Kona Double Clamp w/ Offset. I'm sure that's the size name but they're not listing anything specific.

I've found a couple of sites that seem to imply that the double clamp seat post is 31.6. Can anyone confirm that?

Checked the seat post but no size is on the post and I don't have any calipers right now to measure it.

Thanks in advance.

You better measure... or contact Kona.

Detailed specs on this frame are hard to find. A few sites on line list the seat tube and FD as being 31.8mm. If this is correct, the seat post might be around 27mm.

take it to a shop to be sure. theyll have a neat tapered seatpost tool thing they slide in and will tell you what size seatpost you need. forget the internet, just go see someone at a shop. its not worth either the fuss or exchanging because its too small or the headache after you jam a seatpost in thats too big
