Anyone know what size seatpost I need for this?, I don't have the one that came with the frame so it's tricky to measure

appreciate your help with this

Plus, looking for a drilled quick release seatpost bolt, who would have thought they were so hard to find!

That seems large for a steel frame of this era.
My 1990 Ti is only 26.8mm.

Your local bike shop will have vernier calipers and a healthy supply of duff posts that will confirm the size.
