Hi you lot,

Can anyone help me with the size of seat post I'll need for a '92 GT Avalanche please? Please rack yer brains or consult any catalogues you have! Looked everywhere I can think of and the catalouge on Katalogue.de only shows specs...

Cheers in advance...

Think of it as an excuse to buy something else - vernier calipers! It's amazing how many things need measuring once you own some. :lol:

Try a local bike store and try some posts. Or measure it.
Probably 27.0 or 27.2
GT uses most of those two as far as I know.

Cheers very much guys. Have to get me a measuring thingy...! SB site doesn't have it have checked previously... 27.2 sounds good to me. Will give it a go. Had thought maybe 28.6 but if the psyclone fits that then I'll give it a go. Cheers again everyone.
