27.2 is tooooooo tight.

Just been down to the garage to measure mine, and certainly seems to be 27.2mm.

27 !!! there was a previous thread and it measured between 26.8-27 (possibly due to aly corrosion in seattube.)

from what i understand, tubing supply varied during construction, possibly explaining the minute differences in internal diameter. i run 27.0 in all of mine, 92 94 and 95 and they seem fine

Possibly silly question: The difference between 27 & 27.2 is almost negligible.
Would the post polish/rub down by 0.2 without too much effort ?
