Hey guys, I have a Klein Pinnacle and wish to change the the seatpost to something else. Does anyone know the size? I pulled out the seatpost but the size was not indicated there.

I dont know the exact year but it's probably late 80s to early 90s.

Any help is appreciated, thanks :)

Should be 27.2mm. My '88 and '89 Pinnacles are both this diameter. Easiest to find post size as well, so you should have no problem finding a replacement.

Mine is 27.2 - I think mine's a 92 or 93 maybe and the frame looks identical to yours. Serial is PE5E.

My father just picked my '88 Pinnacle up in the Bay Area from D&D Cycles (the shop that's painted Ritchey frames from the early days). He says it looks fantastic. I'll post pictures as soon as we go up there to visit and grab the frameset.

I've posted these before, but here's a few pictures of me, circa '89, on my Pinnacle:

Here's mine.



Gator linear fade, XT / XTR mix, Judy SL, Velocity K525 rims on XT hubs, Syncros stem, and whatever rubber I got lying around that suits.

filegiant: Nice pics!! That bike looks like it was bought yesterday on those pics. Any upgrades so far since then?

Sideknob: Whereabouts do you live, I'd like to steal your bike :D :D

I'm actually thinking of upgrading this bike, going as far as switching them to v-brakes, stem, handlebar and seatpost. Still thinking if it's worth it. I really like the Pinnacle though.

Those pictures were from the '89 Rockhopper North (Northern California) so that was a while ago. The Pinnacle frameset I just had restored is painted identical, but has the undermounted brakes (rollercams!). Not sure exactly how I'm going to build it, but so far I've got Klein Stratum bars, Speedmaster rollercams, Ritchey Logic brakelevers and XT thumbies (I've also got a set of XTR STI first-gen levers in case I go that route). Won't be totally year specific, but period within a few years.

Australia. Kleins are pretty uncommon over here, apart from a few road bikes, and vintage Kleins are even rarer.
