Anybody who owns an Islabike Beinn 20 (small - but suspect the large size probably uses the same size post) know the seatpost size?

and can measure it if you want.
Have the 20L and 24.

Though Islabikes do respond to emails quite well.

Thanks all - will probably either take it out, or email them. I got it in 2009, so 4 years old, just thinking of a slightly longer post, because I think the stock one doesn't extend that far before the markers.

He'll soon need a new bike, but that's the beauty of Islabikes, and the first bike I got for my kids (Ridgeback MX-14) decent enough, that they'll do for at least 2 kids growing up, probably more.

Take it out, it's only a bolt. Should be stamped on it.

You're right - I will - it wasn't the effort of removing it, though, just wanting to not futz with his saddle height at the moment, but I'll wrap some masking tape around the current position.

It was 25.4, and it's a 2009 model, for future reference and searches.
