Hey,

I'm trying really hard to find a decent Easton EA50 or 70 seat post in 27.0 but it seems they aren't made anymore and rarer than rocking horse sh*t...
Realistically what are the chances of a 27.2 fitting - I mean .2 of a mm isn't that much... Also bearing in mind that I think my current post slips down a little... So whats the consensus of the knowledgable ones?

only way to find is to try it. what frame is it?

if the 27.2 dosen't fit, it will be easy enough to sell on.

Had another look at my 27.0 seat post the other day and noticed that when the QR is undone there is actually a bit of wobble even with the post most of the way down - could it be my france needs a 27.2? think I might have a put on a cheap from evilBay and see what happens...

Does sound like you need a 27.2.... Pop down your lbs and try one, they'll have an old one you can try
