Hi mate, welcome, you wanna edit your post header to include 'kona lava dome' and you'll get a few knowledgeable chaps along pretty soon, probably more than one with 'al' in their name!

There's a magazine scan section on this site. Go look for the 1993-1996 Kona catalogues, all the details you need are in there. From memory, it's a 1996, but I'm not 100%.

Yep it's a '96 (looks like a 19" frame) and you need a 27.0mm diameter seat post (not the more common 27.2mm).

Having said that (about the seatpost) I'm using a 27.2 in my '98 Lava Dome with no problems. It should be a 27, but the extra .2 doesn't seem to hinder the fit, it goes up n down just fine. 27.2s are much easier to get hold of, even if it's just to get you on the road.
