ok so i have a 27.2 post in my frame (kalloy?)
but i cant do i up tight enough for it not to move (although with a bash, but far too tight)
so im wondering how common 27.4's are?
and if anyone has one?

A bit of trivia for yeah.
Ive been measuring my seat post collection (for compatibility purposes) honest :oops:
Using a digital Vernier Caliper and you'd be surprised how vague the sizes are stamped on the seat posts :?
Do what I did I tried different makes of the same size, even polished against painted or anodised seems to make a difference.
