Martin, if you're ever in doubt about seatpost size just check out Sheldon Brown's website.

:) Cheers Steve,

Problem not as bad as I first thought. I tried a 27.2 in the frame & got it jammed :oops: So after loosing my rag with it & enough swearing to make a Greek sailor blush :x it came out.

Now on the look-out for a silver 27.0 post.....

what you got?

Ah! Now it becomes clearer! :wink: When you said stuck I assumed it was the age-old problem of the seized-in seatpost..

Got a Thomson in the KK, not period correct I know but a nice seatpost nevertheless.

Hi Steve,

Just spoke to P, he says not too bothered about post anymore.

So if you would sell to me, how much would you take for it?

Right, it's a 350 mm Alien with not too much USE (ahem) so I guess I'm looking at £25 posted. Any good to you?

Hi buddy,

Yes think I'm interested, but I can collected as we're both in the same 'hood' (save us both a few quid)?
