Been trawling chain reaction and wiggle but can't find a seatpost in the size I need.

I've acquired an early 90's rockhopper and it needs a 27.0mm seatpost, why?? Longer the better, and of the same vintage would be smashing. Thanks in advance.

ebay has kalloy uno posts and other 27.0 galore. Late 80s thru mid 90s frames were often 27.0, especially things in steel and straight gauge aluminium. It was far more common a size than 27.2 was at the time.

Thanks all, local bike shop had a rough looking SR (sakae royal) post in 6061 alloy from time period of bike!!! What are the odds?
Stripped it back to bare alloy and polished it up and it looks cracking..... Result, and free, not inc my sandpaper and sweaty effort, but that's part of the fun in my opinion :)
