I have a 2000-2001 cinder cone (alu) and a 2001-2002 I think kula in easton custom tubing.
The cinder cone can take a 27.2 seatpost but the kula seems happier with a 27.0, I've not wanted to force or push the 27.2 in too heftily.

Can someone clarify on the kula size please as I'd like to fit a Thomson layback and they come in a 27.2 but not a 27.0 :roll:


Cheers!!

The one that I can confirm for sure is a 2001 Kula. I have one myself and it's fitted with a 27.0.

The Kona literature that I have here also quotes a 27.0 for a 2000 & 2001 Cinder Cone, but I can't find anything to confirm the size for a 2002 Kula.

If I am able to confirm the year of your Kula by the colour or decal style, it may help.

Thanks Pip,

useful info,
I cannot confirm mine paint or decal wise as it's been powder coated white and redecaled, but I was sold it as a 2001 model.( the Kula I mean).
Anyway sounds like confirmation on the 27, it makes sense as is a good fit on the Kula, not like the slack fit of the 27 post in the cindercone's 27.2 tube.

:( no Thomson for the Kula then.....
