Right so the older 1995ish era kona frames. Cromo and Easton seem to have 27.0mm seat posts.

So far I have seen a Thomson and an old Raceface XY, a few kona posts and some old road stuff, shimano DX, possible a ritchey WCS (original alloy 1990’s one) and that’s about it.

Thinking a thread where we can list as many options of make/model as possible to help out anyone looking for an alternative post. Info on web seems very scarce. I started hunting as wanted something that may take a little sting out of the Alu frame and post (which I always found brilliant but a bit uncomfortable and clattery at rear)

So

Thomson Elite
Ritchey WCS (original alloy)
Shimano DX
Kona Race Light O-beam........

Over to you guys

I rarely fit period correct components to any of my frames, so this list may cause offence to some. Here are most of my older bikes with their 27.0mm Seat Posts, then a list after that of Posts that I have archived.

93 Kilauea - Ritchey / Kalloy / Uno (Nitto copy).

95 Kula - Kona Race Light O-Beam In-line.

96 Ku - USE Alien.

97 Explosif - BBB SkyScraper BSP-20.

97 Koa - Kona Race Lite Tahoma.

97 King Kahuna & 98 Hei Hei - Race Face X-Y.

98 Hot - Ritchey Comp.


XTR SP-M910.

Titec X-Wing.

Zoom SP-50.

Syncros Aluminium.

Syncros Titanium.

PZ Racing C3MB.

BBB Skyscraper.

No offence to me...

Would love either titanium to match the colour of bontrager ti tec bar or carbon to match the pace RC36 evo iii but think that’s not gonna happen so thought if we find a full list of avails it would help loads of retro kona people

Never really had any problems finding 27.0 seatposts. Have a couple of Ringle moby posts, Syncros Ti, Thomson, a few cheaper models and some Kona which are probably Kalloy. Ritchey too. Oh, and a few USE shims and a stack of posts too.

I think the Kona 26.6 is a harder size to find decent posts for.
