its best to try the 26.8 first otherwise something might get stuck...

...and it isnt just a reto thing either - people still stuuf the wrong posts down their bikes and even over tighten or ram it in.

I've only just found out my 1994 has a 27.0 mm post I think as the 27.2 post I have a the other option other than the polished rock shox post is too big .

Your 27.0 post do you still have it and what would you want for it ?

Cheers

Yeah - still got it. It came back from the strippers today though so would need either polishing and lacquering or black passivating.

I was gonna polish it tomorrow actually (along with finishing the rest of the frame etc) so it was ready to sell on sometime.

Wouldn't want a great deal for it really - you're welcome to come and have a look sometime so you can make an offer.

Frame came out from the stripping well BTW.

Polish time ! Get some mothers polish from the bay , it was recommended by all my vw mates and its amaizing , you use the free micro fibre cloth and it really works. If the frames needs a slight bit of work before then try some 2000 wet and dry .

I may have the frame with me on Saturday when I go to work so ill have to let you know.

The 27.0 rock shox post drops in a treat and the 27.2 is a no go at all unless you force it in which I don't want to do as it needs to be moved up and down. As we have a wheelie challenge planned on cannock chase when a new bridge opens :)
