Probably get flamed for not putting this in the Techy section but i'm wearing asbestos pants so i'll take the risk.
Does anyone know with any degree of authority what the seatpost dia is for a mid nineties Ballistic hardtail frame made out of Tange Prestige tubing is?
The front mech appears to 28.6 if that helps. I've seen a few other frames/bikes the same mentioned/discussed on here recently.
It seems my guess of 26.8mm was wrong as its a bit of a willy in a bowler hat type of fit, so my second guess would be 27mm but its a bit of drag to keep buying posts in the vain attempt of finding the right size.

I would take it to your LBS where they can measure/try a variety...

27mm would be my best guess, my '97 Axis in prestige is this size.
