Doh! and Double Doh! I got the subject wrong!

Nope I need a seat tube expanded by .2mm.

The back story; '93 Kona Kilaeua, modern 27.0 fits fine but my nice retro syncros 27.2 doesn't and nor do any modern 27.2's. Given Kona used the same tubesets with different reamings going 27.2 makes my life a lot easier.

if its .2 of a mm, just use wet and dry to slim your seatpost down, this will take all of about 5 minutes. note, don't do this anywhere in public

Just find a retro 27.0 they where very common back then.

27.2 shouldn't fit in a 27.0, if they did then something is wrong.
