I have a silver Orange branded seatpost from around 95 if you want it, it's the curved top one, you know a bit like a hockey stick with the clamp on the curve.

Sure it's not a Prestige?

P7 had oversized tubes compared to the Prestige but Orange never made a frame with <26.8mm Seat tube ID.

Obviously no use to you finding a suitable post but of some vague interest to me :)

Couldn't tell you for sure...

P7 means Prestige Series 7 Tubing, so no clue from the Tubing you've got there :?

Have you tried fitting a 27.0 or a 27.2 post and seeing whether it'll fit?

I may well be completely wrong, but i think 26.8 is too small (if it is a P7). Presumably Ededwards would know??

EDIT: D'oh, i see you already tried a 27.2 :roll: Do the cables route directly along the centre of the toptube or are the slightly off to the drive-side of the tube?
