1991 GT Xizang PM sent! I've always run a shim and a 27.2 post in my frame instead of adding the weight of a pipe that size.

often times the larger diamter posts are actually lighter than the 27.2 posts. Aluminum likes to be fat.

There are a couple nice handmade frames that use a 29.4.

"Independant Fabrication" being the one I found in my search...fairly odd size.

My son's old Trek came with a 29.4 and when I had to replace it, I looked forever to find another. Believe it or not, it was the very low end model 800.

what an idea for a project...

Quite a task but a seatpost database would be great...I know Sheldon Brown has a great one but I think an update pertaining more to VRC bikes might be great. There are so many questions posted about it here(including mine). Maybe weekly we could post a thread on a specific size (ie: starting with small sizes and working up), and have everyone share thier knowledge. Then move that info to a sticky...would that work? Would there be interest in sharing that info and would you guys contribute?

Early 90s Marin Pine Mountains were 29.4 also. The 1991 one with the matte black and neon orange for example.
